SPECIAL "HOW TOS" (HELPS) FOR MY FELLOW FIND A GRAVE VOLUNTEERS USING HTML CODE:
HOW TO EXPAND YOUR BIO PAGE AS WELL AS YOUR INDIVIDUAL MEMORIALS TO FILL OUT THE SCREEN LEAVING LITTLE OR NO WHITE AREA TO THE RIGHT: Just type a line across the page at some point in the bio OR add a row of characters. Just make sure to leave your EDIT TAB IN FULL VIEW. Recheck before continuing.
HOW TO CREATE BOLD TEXT: To create bold text in your Find A Grave memorials or on your home page you need to USE SOME HTML CODING by first type < and next TYPE the letter b with no space and then type > NEXT TYPE THE TEXT THAT YOU WANT IN BOLD PRINT and at the end of what is to be in bold TYPE < no space then / then b then > with no spaces in between them.
HOW TO CREATE ITALICS TEXT: You can also do the same thing with italics by switching out the b and replace with i (for italics) using the same procedure. Or you can do both bold & italics by adding both the corresponding HTML codes one following the other with no space. Experiment with this until you get it right. Try it!
HOW TO CREATE A LINK TO ANOTHER FIND A GRAVE MEMORIAL: Sometimes you may want to link to another memorial especially when there is no way to normally link the memorials - use the following HTML Code: < a h r e f = "http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid= number "> name < / a >
NOTE there are no spaces in the code except one after a before href. I had to make spaces so you can read this. Then find the memorial you want to link to, copy the number from the bottom of the memorial and paste that number where you see the word number - then delete the word number being careful not to remove any other notations. Then place the name of the person you want in place of the word NAME. Carefully delete the word name. Then click SAVE CHANGES. Always check to make sure the link has taken place and it is to the correct memorial.
MOST IMPORTANTLY Create a copy of your most important memorials to your computer hard drive especially direct family members in case something happens to the system plus save a copy to an external hard drive. Better be prepared than angry!

Stephen R Johnson Sorry...never mind that message from me about the picture. I just clicked on the picture and will send the poster of the old pic a message. I'll eventually get the hang of this! Again, sorry.
I have a more up-to-date photo of the monument of Stephen Runyan Johnson in Clinton County, Ohio. I took it last October. Thankfully, his monument has been re-erected. I tried to upload a new pic but got a message from the system that the max of 5 photos had already been reached. I don't want to lose the text portions of the memorial but do want to update the photo.
