7. Click on Flex Editor and edit and copy everything from the page and paste it into the Content Page. On the content page, you will not be able to change the background color and the font type, you will however be able to change the font size and color among many other options (At this time you may want to open up the second tab and open up your web page via the faculty directory. This will allow you to see what your page should look like so that you can make changes to keep the look of your original page)
