Section Maintenance

Help On Editing:

The Content Management System (CMS) is provided to enable Authorised Personnel to update and maintain selected areas of the website that are driven via a database.  The CMS is intended to be intuitive in its operation and these help pages are therefore more an 'aide memoire' rather than detailed user manual.  As a rule try to avoid using apostrophes and quotation marks, especially in fields that are used for searching or linking records.
