AglowNet sites use WordPress for the content management system, so it will be pretty easy for you to pick up your site and run with it after the initial pages have been created by the Headquarters office.
WordPress has a wonderful online support system if you need help at http://wordpress.org/support/. There you will find forums and in depth how-to instructions. You can even find lessons at http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Lessons.
Download the “How To” handout with instructions on how to do the basic tasks.
Please fill out the site planning worksheet to help you plan out your site.
You will also need to gather all graphics you want posted on your site to submit to the Headquarters office.
The cost for an AglowNet site is only $100 for the set-up which will include the initial creation of the site and pages mentioned previously. There will also be a $10 monthly fee.
