How to use this website
Immediately above you will see a button labelled Click to open menu panel
If you feel adventurous try it now.
You will see a large version of all the menu items you are allowed to access. These items are exactly the same as the items you will find on the drop down menu lists at the top right, just a little larger.
The button will be replaced by one labelled Click to close menu panel.
This panel is available on every page but is concealed unless you specifically ask for it.
Navigating our site
The coloured panel above has links to take you to the various pages of the site. Clicking or tapping on the links will take you to that page.
The Public drop down menu inside the U3A Logo also has the same list of links so you can get to the public pages, even if the navigation panel is not part of the page you happen to be reading.
On a computer, simply hovering the mouse over the menu name causes it to drop down and reveal its contents. Move the mouse up and down the list and select your item of interest by clicking on the mouse.
On a pad, tapping on the menu name has the same effect.
If the menus are a bit awkward for your fingers, or the typeface is a little small, clicking on the menu heading gives you a version of that menu in a navigation style pane. On a pad, you will need to tap the menu name a second time.
If you see the word `help` somewhere on a page, usually just below a heading, tapping on the word will display some contextual help. Tapping away from the help panel will close it again.
