These WYSIWYG editors allow you to add descriptive text to your property.
At 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 property 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.
You can also add documents to the property. Just below the photo upload area, you'll find the document upload section. This will create a special document list in the property overview.
Editing a Property
To edit a property, navigate to Website Manager> Properties and click anywhere on the property you'd like to edit. Alternatively, you can also edit the property by clicking Edit Property on the DakBar (upper right) if you are logged into your DaknoAdmin and are on the property's page. Edit the property as needed.
The Page URL for a property 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.
