Editing text/content on a website (9 posts)

    I have just started work experience at a resort in Vanuatu, where I was expecting to be doing marketing but have had a website in need of updating dumped on me!!

    I have managed to work out how to update the pdf links and have downloaded FileZilla to upload etc but I can't for the life of me work out how to edit the on site text! I thought I had it figured out by (don't laugh) right clicking and going to 'inspect element' on what I wanted to change, going through until I found the text I wanted to edit and right clicking to 'edit text'. I also tried editing it as an html, but have since figured that this must be a chrome option and doesn't have any long term effect on the content of the website

    The site is hosted by Helm, and I am an absolute beginner in this so please keep answers a straightforward as possible!! Sorry for being such a noob, and any help is very much appreciated!

    Oh nice! I saw some clips of Vanuatu only the other day.

    Can you login to the site via http://domain.com/wp-admin?

    It's beautiful here, I just need to work this out so I can stop stressing and enjoy it!

    I went through to there but it just takes me to domain.com and doesn't have a place to log in?

    I know this is probably impossibly simple and I'm just making things as difficult as possible, but no-one here knows anything about the website and the guy that made it left long ago..

    Thanks for that :) I just have to find out what the username and password details might be, it seems I have only been given login details for the hosting site!

    I will post again once I have managed to log in, sorry I take so long to respond the internet is ridiculously slow here!

    How comfortable are with using PHPmyadmin to adjust an entry in the site's database?

    the internet is ridiculously slow here!

    Oh - but the rest of it makes up for that. :-)

    To be honest I'm not sure! I'll download it and see how it goes? I'm not too bad at picking up new software so I'm more than happy to give it a go :) It seems the guy who set up the site in the first place didn't give a lot of info to the resort before he took off so I'll go with whatever works!

    I must say you can't beat working from a sun lounger on the beach!!
