For one protopage you will need about 15 minutes to activate.
First of all you will need your little black book where you keep private notes uch as passwords and christmas card lists.
You will start by creating a gmail account - taking notes of all that you input with particular notice to the email address and the password. You will need this for protopage forgotten password.
It is something that i did not do - I was fine with just a couple of e'mails but as numbers grew I started to have difficulties - now that I have exhausted all the Gmail accounts that I have for one phone I am rally in a mess - I have no record of which site that I registered with and I have forgotton the format of the password for my primary sites. - I need to learn from my mistakes.
Having created your Gmail Account the first thing that you will do is start to use the google drive - create a folder called Christmas - create a document called 2020 Chrismas letter and just do Hello World! for now.
In a moment you will share your letter to the world using protopage--- PROBLEM WITH MY SPACE BAR THEN---- .
Mike .... This is easier than the easiest thing ....
Go to site http://protopage.com
and click on Register - Top left corner
Fill in all the stuff - making notes on what you do - MAKING SURE THAT YOU SELECT PUBLIC FOR YOUR SITE.
TAKE CARE WITH INPUT _ CHECK THREE TIMES BEFORE YOU ACTIVATE.
You should be very glad that you did it when i tell you what to do next.
Change the name in the header
It does not have to be the same as the site name.
I have not told you what to call your site you will be doing :
1. Theclans - if available - 7 characters minimum - if taken do theclans2020
This will get you used to the power of protopage ang how they can be linked together.
You are creating an Infonet of closely knitted websites
Now create an Extranet - that's a site that is linked within your infonet but is not referenced back in the extranet.
Create a exranet called mymanchestercityscrapbook no links to your pages.
Thats it play and get your family to play.
Next week I will show you protopage advanced functions. Get to play first and get all your clan(s) engaged too.
Next Saturday we will set up how you can give me access to do research for you on CO2 for EcoGlobe.
By NEXT SATURDAY I EXPECT TO SEE HTTP//protopage.com/ecoglobeactive - I will do it for you to configure it - it is a bit of a task - best i do it and share the password with you.
Thank you Mike - you are still MYBESTMAN http://protopage.com/georgebest
Start to think about your favourite films and music - you will be doing Sifters2020
