- Click the Edit button.
- This will take you to the editing view of the selected page, where the modules of the body are editable.

Working with Drafts
- As you work within the page, you should click Save Draft anytime you would like to save your work, but not publish your changes.
- When you return to the Site Center, you will see that the date of the current draft appears above the date of the most current published version.
- You will also have the option to cancel the current draft and return to the most recently published version:
- When a draft is active, you can return to the Edit screen to resume your work.
- Clicking Cancel WITHIN the Edit screen will cancel any new work, and return you to the most currently saved draft.

- If you fail to close the Edit screen properly, you will be taken to the page the next time you log in and be prompted to Publish, Save Draft, or Cancel the latest auto-saved draft.
