About this Manual
The Help Manual is a guide to help you through the setup and management of your Web site. Each of the management tools is explained through illustrations and step-by-step procedures. Please read the explanations and instructions for each manager before beginning. A glossary of unfamiliar words is also included.
Not all managers will apply to each level, though instructions for all mangers are outlined in this manual.

Before You Begin
While your Web site can be viewed in most any Web browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Netscape, etc.), you need Internet Explorer 5.5, or higher, to take advantage of the advanced editing features. This gives the site administrator of your Web ministry the tools needed to produce a professional quality site in a more time efficient manner. If you are running Microsoft® Windows 95 or later, you most likely have some version of IE already installed on your computer.
Checking your version of IE
Internet Explorer may be accessed in more than one method. Use one of the following methods to find Internet Explorer on your computer:Desktop
Double-click on the Internet Explorer iconStart menu
Where to get IE 5.5
If you use America Online (AOL) as your ISP, you will still need Internet Explorer. When editing your Web site, you will connect to AOL as you normally do. After the connection to the Internet has been established, open IE and use it to edit your site. Please note that you will need to stay connected to AOL even while you are in the IE browser window.
Save early and often!
It is very important to note that when editing your webpages, you should save your work early and often. We suggest clicking on your save button (green diskette icon, located in the upper right hand corner of your page) at least every 10 minutes. The E-Zekiel application is set to time out after 20 minutes of inactivity. If you have not saved during this 20 minute time frame, it is possible for your session to time out and your work to be lost. Make "saving early and often" a habit as you begin work on your website to avoid losing your important work.
