This is a wysiwyg editor that allows you to add information about the neighborhood. This will display below the neighborhood overview and photos, but above the map.
At the very bottom of the edit page, there is an area where you can upload photos. These photos will create a photo viewer at the top of the neighborhood page. Photos can be dragged and dropped onto this area, or if you are not using a browser that supports drag and drop, clicking Upload a file will allow you to navigate to the photos. More information and tips about adding photos.
Editing a Neighborhood
To edit a neighborhood simply click anywhere on the neighborhood you'd like to edit on the Neighborhood List. Edit the neighborhood as needed.
The Page URL for a neighborhood can be updated. When renaming, a page will show asking you if you'd like to create a redirect. If it is an older, established page, we recommend accepting the redirect. This way visitors that have the old address (either through a search engine, or a direct link) can still find the page.
