HELP

This page has tips for using our team site, and also has a site map. The tips are about menus, printing, viewing documents, and browser issues.

For more help see the extensive Help/FAQ resource page.

Tip : to get the most out of this site, those who have never used a team site like this may read the special report New Users; those who have used older sites may read the report Site Changes for 2011.

Menu Tips 

Vertical Menu

Use the vertical menu bar on the left to go to pages within our team site. Pages are in two sets: pages about our team; and pages about our schedules. These pages are listed in the site map on the right.

A different vertical menu appears on pages like the Help/FAQ resource page, which offer general information not just for one team, but for all teams.

Horizontal Menu

Use the horizontal ruby coloured menu bar in the page banner to go to other Majors’ sites:

  • MMBA: its dropdown menu lets you go to key pages in the MMBA website.
  • AA Teams: its dropdown menu lets you go to any AA team site for the current season.
  • AAA Teams: its dropdown menu lets you go to any AAA team site for the current season.
  • Resources: its dropdown menu lets you go to pages shared by all team sites. For example, to get to a list of maps, point the cursor to the tab labelled “Resources”, then click on Maps in its dropdown menu.

Tip : clicking on the Majors logo at the top left of any page will take you to a resources page with a list of all the Majors’ team sites made by Chuck Upsdell.

Tip : in the dropdown menus, white links go to pages in this site, and blue (or gold) links go to pages in other sites.

Printing Tips 

The page masthead and menus aren’t needed on printouts, so they aren’t printed.

Color inks are costly, so text is printed in black on white.

The calendar pages might be easier to read when printed in landscape mode.

If pages aren’t printed as you expect, see “Why don’t printed pages look like displayed pages?”.

Viewing Documents 

Sometimes information is provided in documents instead of in web pages, for example as Word (DOC) or Adobe Reader (PDF) files. To learn how to view such documents, see “How do I view documents which my PC cannot read?”.

Browser Issues 

Older versions of browsers have uncorrected security defects that put you at risk, so you should always make sure you have the latest version. For more information about this, see Browser News - Why Update?.
