Find Content by Month or Time of Year
You can look for content by month. If you need something for Fall - you can look at the most current fall month or look in past fall months. Click on each date and you'll see a page with all the content for that month.
Find Content by Keyword Search
If you have a specific topic you are looking for, you can use the keyword search bar. Only content with that word in it will show.
Copy content from the website (without having to retype the stories yourself)
Here's how to get the Content articles from the website without retyping the stories:
- Find the content piece you want.
- With your cursor highlight the desired text. You can do all the stories on the page or just one of the stories.
- While the text is highlighted, hold down the Ctrl key and press the C key. That will copy the text. (Ctrl + C is the standard shortcut for copying for most programs.)
- Open a new or existing document using your favorite program such as MS Word. It can even be a plain .TXT file.
- Put your cursor somewhere on the page and paste the copied text using the Ctrl and V keys. (Ctrl + V is the standard shortcut for pasting for most programs.)
- Repeat for other pages or stories.
- If the content has a piece of clipart and you want to use it in a printed publication do not copy and paste the image as that will be a very low-resolution image. You'll want to click on the filename link below the content. The file will either download to your computer or it will open on screen. If it opens on the screen, you can then right-mouse click and choose "Copy Image" or "Save Image As".
NOTE: If you copied a clip-art image along with the text it illustrates, keep in mind that you copied the GIF version. GIFs are used for display purposes on Web sites and do not print well. If you want the clip-art for printing, you'll want to download it separately using the art file name links just below the story. Those are usually TIFF (.tif) files.
