This will ensure that anyone who visits your site can see the document.



  • To change the picture on a banner (For example on the “HOME” screen), click “CHANGE IMAGE”.  Then you will be prompted to select whether you want to upload the image or use a google image.  You can also upload from this screen.

  • To move a content block, simply hover over the dots either on the top of the content block or to the left, click those and drag the content block to where you want it.

  • To delete a content block, change the color, or duplicate the section, you can hover over the block on the left hand side and you will see three options, the painters 


  • To embed a link in text anywhere on your google site, you simply click the text and a text toolbar will appear above the text.  Click the PAPER CLIP icon and this will allow you to embed a link.
