Why does the Chatham Historical Society website have a new design and layout?
Another benefit is that each page now has a unique address that shows up in the “address bar” area near the top of your browser window; this address can be used to refer people to a specific page on our website, for example in email, or on Facebook.
How can the contents of these web pages be printed?
For some pages, there is a PDF version of the page available. The PDF format may produce a better printed page, but there are differences among browsers and systems that make it difficult to predict exactly how to deal with a PDF document; see the PDF help FAQ below for more information.
Why are there PDF versions of some pages, and how does one deal with them?
The PDF Format is a way to represent documents with the exact look of each page (fonts, margins, etc.). Making a document available on the Web in PDF format assures that the viewer will see the page exactly like the author intended, regardless of browser or operating system being used. A PDF document is also the easiest way to save a copy of a document on your own computer for later printing, by downloading the PDF document. To view or print a PDF document, your computer must have the right software installed; in most cases, this is the “Adobe Reader” software from Adobe Systems, the inventor of PDF; many computers come with this program pre-installed. Do not worry about installing Adobe Reader unless you have trouble viewing PDF documents; if you do need it, it is available from this Adobe site.
- To view the PDF version of a page, click the link for the PDF. The PDF document will open in a full window, ie without the website’s banner, menus, and footer.
- To directly save a copy of a PDF document on your own computer, you can put the mouse over the link to the document, right-click the mouse, and select “Save Target(/Link) As”; a dialog box will open asking where to save the file.
While viewing a PDF document, you may print or download it using icons on the viewing screen.
Are there conventions used on the Atwood House & Museum website that make it simple to know when a link can be clicked to go to another web page?
