Hi Tiffany and Jason. If I could make a comment, it looks like you created a new page instead of one of the ones already assigned to us on the sidebar to the right. are you (t) practice of mindfulness or (S)? Your page created looks nice but by creating a new page there is no link for it on the right side. now what you could do and this gets complicated is create a new link in the sidebar and name it the T or S proper name and link to this page, then delete the original one, the one the teacher created. Or and this gets complicated, you can copy the source code by right clicking on this page here and save it as a htm file then open the proper link that the teacher created and copy that html code and replace it with this new page you created so you dont lose all your work. I think the first solution is easier, the one creating a link for this page and rename it with the T and S and your title now I can help if you want just tell me if you are the T or S (Daryll Bruno)
