Adding things
To add to your page, look at the top of the middle column, under the heading, "Add new" and click on what you want to add.

From there, put in a short description such as My House, etc.

In the box at the bottom, enter the actual data, such as address, phone number, email address, web url, or whatever, hitting enter at the end of each line. If you can't see the Preview button, hitting Tab in most browsers will take you there if you're currently in the data entry box. Use Preview to submit it or Discard to forget it.

On the next screen, you can review your item, then hit Save to save it or Discard to forget the changes.

If you want to receive emails for parties, etc., please be sure to add an email address if you haven't already. Don't obfuscate the email address or it won't work.

Editing or Deleting
To edit an item, click edit that is located in that item's title bar.

To delete an item, click the del that is located in that item's title bar.

Images do not have an edit feature, you can only delete and add those.
Browsers Supported
Egypt III uses cascading style sheets and limited use of tables. This means that your Internet Explorer must be 5.0 or better, your Netscape must be 7 or better, your mozilla should be 1.0 or better, etc. We're still working on getting it to work with Safari, etc. I have no machine to test with!

The new egypt NO LONGER supports Netscape 4.x of any flavor. Sorry!
FAQ and Tricks
Q: I know an egyptian you forgot about that isn't on the site!
A: Send Tom or Jim an email and nominate them, please!

Q: There's an egyptian on the site with no data, but I know something about them. Should I add it?
A: If that person doesn't mind, please do! People are always glad to know the whereabouts of their friends!

Q: I know someone's updated email address, phone number or web page and I know they don't mind if I fix it, so may I?
A: Certainly! The web page is on the honor system which has worked nicely over the years!

Q: Why do I look like Mr. Yuk?"
A: Your profile has no pictures. Upload a picture so we can see your hot self!

Q: Why does my picture look all pixellated and/or blocky?
A: Because it's very small and the web page is stretching it to fit the side panel. You can use a photoshop-esque program to stretch it yourself to about 480 pixels wide (which may or may not be wider than the panel will be, but a great trade-off). Of course, the height will change too if you tell the program to "lock" the proportion (unless you like looking squat.) By doing that you can apply whatever filters you like to make the picture look ok before uploading.

Q: My picture looks great but it paints slowly as compared to other pictures.
A: Your picture is huge, then, and the web page is shrinking it down to fit into the panel, but it must still upload the whole thing across the network every time someone views it. This hogs bandwidth. To fix it, download the image (usually a right click) or find your original copy, then do a photoshop-esque shrink to it, about 480 pixels wide, locking the proportions, and apply whatever filters you like. Save as new, don't overwrite your precious original! Then upload the new one. When you're happy with the new one, then delete the old one from Egypt III and all will be right with the world.

Q: I want to change my name. I can change everything but that.
A: That feature is coming soon!

Q: I want a bunch of web page links in one box.
A: You can use story to do all sorts of tricks, so add one, and put the html code directly into the story for the links.

Q: I want that cool thing like Robin's Moblog
A: Do like above, create a story and insert the javascript code. Please test it and make sure it works and be conscious that it could break other people's browsers and render your page non-standards compliant in some ways. Be careful! Also, please do not put abusive java or javascript in there that'll load advertisements, or abuse the page in some other way, etc.

Q: You are so cool!
A: Oh, I know!
