    Q: Can I add my own favicon to show in place of the FASO favicon?
    Can I display a favicon icon on the url address bar and in my favorites list, like FASO has (the Red Paintbrush or the Red Fleur De Liz on the Gold background)?

    A: Sorry, it is not possible at this time to add your own favicon in place of the FASO favicon.

    A favicon (short for favorites icon), also known as a shortcut icon, website icon, URL icon, or bookmark icon is a 16x16 or 32x32 pixel square icon associated with a particular website or webpage.

    This will show in the address bar (left of URL), the title of a tab on your browser window, and in your 'favorites' listings.

    Q: Text appearance problems
    Why doesn't text on a page appear properly?

    A: If you're having trouble with fonts appearing properly on a page, it may help to start from scratch by cleaning the HTML tags.

    When editing your Page, click on the 'Full Screen Mode for ...' button (below the text edit area), which will take you to the Full Screen Editor. Then,

    1. Click the 'More Editing Options' icon (the last icon on the right).
    2. Click the 'Clean All HTML Tags' icon (3rd from the right in the second row of icons). This will remove all HTML tags (as well as spacing and any images that are on the page).
    3. You can then make font size, family, and color changes by using the editing icons. You will also need to add spacing to your page text and re-insert images on the page.

    Q: How to Enable Fonts in the Full Screen Composer
    How to Enable Fonts in the Full Screen Composer

    A: FASO Sites are designed to look great have have harmonious fonts. The fonts are controlled by a technology called "CSS". The font selector in the editor attempted to override CSS and sometimes the two conflicted with each other yielding unpredictable and, sometimes frustrating, results for the artist. If you need to change fonts, it's best to do it on a global level with CSS.

    Having said that, you can enable the font selector in the full screen composer, as long as you are aware that due to the conflict with the built-in CSS, FASO won't be able to support any issues with it.

    If you'd like to enable the font selector in the full screen composer, here is how you do it:

    1. Login to your FASO Account

    2. Click the settings "cog" in the upper right hand corner

    3. Click "Account Settings"

    4. Click "Labs"

    5. Check the box next to "This account displays font options in the full screen composer"

    6. Click save

    You should now see the font options in the Full Screen Composer.

    Q: Can I change the images that show in the Recent Works Sidebar widget?
    Can I change the images that show in the Recent Works Sidebar widget?

    A: Unfortunately there is no way to choose what images show in the Recent Works Sidebar Widget. The widget simply shows the most recently UPLOADED images.

    The developers added this widget when they developed the Gen 3 templates (actually they created several widgets and intend to create more).

    These widgets are lighter and simpler than the full website. As such it is difficult to add a lot of customization to the way the widgets function as they kind of 'just sit on top' of the existing structure.

    Since they were something that was kind of an 'extra' the developers felt it was better to create lightweight widgets that could be either turned on or off, and to continue to keep the bulk of programming efforts focused on the 'real' features of the websites.

    ===================

    You have 3 options:

    1. Re-upload the images that you want to appear in the widget.

    2. We can change the title of 'Recent Works' to 'Featured Works' or even 'Samples of Art' - whatever you would like.
    If this is of interest to you, just contact Tech Support and let us know what title you would like.

    3. Turn the widget off:
    from control panel
    click on "Design" icon (top row)
    click on Advanced (upper right corner)
    click on Sidebar Widgets (Beta)

    Q: How do I archive artwork?
    At the bottom of my Works page on my website I see the link for 'View Archived Works'. How do I add images to this archive section?

    A: The built-in feature for 'View Archived Works' is dependent upon a setting in the editing screen for any individual piece of art.

    The setting is: Status

    The STATUS setting has 2 options:
    Current
    Archived

    Current: anything that is set at Current will appear in your artwork portfolio - in a collection.

    Archived: anything set as Archived will ONLY SHOW in the built-in 'View Archived Works' feature. If you have collections set up, the archived piece will no longer show in a collection.

    -------------------------------

    To change status and have work show in the archives:
    -log into control panel
    -click Artwork icon (top row)
    -click on Edit to the right of an item
    -for Status, change from Current to Archived
    -Save Changes

    Repeat for each image you want to show in Archives.

    A: 1. Open the document containing the text you wish to copy

    2. Click somewhere in the document and press the "Ctrl" key and the "A" key at the same time (Global Select All Command). This should highlight all of the text. (You can also highlight everything with your mouse by moving the cursor to the beginning of the text and then click your mouse and drag the cursor to the end of the text)(You can also click on the "Edit" menu at the top of your window and when it drops down click "Select All")

    3. Once the text is highlighted, press the "Ctrl" key and "C" key at the same time (Global Copy Command). This will copy the selected text into the computers temporary memory. (You can also click the edit menu and select "Copy" from the drop down menu)

    4. Enter the location you wish to paste the text and click the mouse somewhere in the field. (If you are wanting to paste the text in your "About the Artist" category, enter your control panel, click Edit category information, then click About the Artist, and click in the larger field for text)

    5. Once you have clicked in the new location press the "Ctrl" key and the "V" key at the same time (Global Paste Command). You should see the text appear in the text box. (You can also click the edit menu and select paste from the drop down menu).

    Q: I copied and pasted text into my control panel. The format is all askew. How do I fix this?
    Why doesn't my copy/paste work right?

    A: When you type text in another program (especially Microsoft Word) then paste it in to a FASO text box editing screen, it also copies in unneeded code that can cause formatting problems.

    We HIGHLY recommend that if you want to compile your entry in an outside program, use NotePad or a similar program that removes all the formatting first.

    If you have already created the text in Microsoft, please copy the text into Notepad and then copy and paste from the Notepad document.

    To access notepad:
    click on your computer START button
    click All Programs
    click Accessories
    click Notepad

    If you're on a Mac, we recommend the application TextEdit:
    Click on the Search icon (looking glass, top right of screen)
    Enter Text Edit
    Click on TextEdit
    After typing your text, click Format, then "Make Plain Text"

    ------------------

    Following this procedure allows the global formatting of the FASO system to take over and will make sure all text is consistent.

    If you then want to format the text, (make it larger, italicize, another color, a different font style) use the Full Screen Composer button AFTER you've pasted in the format-free text.
