    Toby, can we have a link to the Personal Spaces of NEER participants on the dashboard so that people know how to get to someone straight away? Anne

    You can upload images as attachments to any page; see: How do I add an attachment?

    You can then insert and display images in a page; see: How do I display an image in a page?

    Hi Toby and Anne,

     I've just been to the workshop with Ela. She has done a great job of explaining to the ignorant and fearful! Confluence promises to be great, but it's a bit complex and will take quite a bit of getting used to. I suggest that we have some sort of Confluence HELP access, where we can ask the silly questions we don't know the answer to. Also, perhaps it would be a good idea to have a follow-up workshop where we can recap and add to our nascent skills.

    We should also specially thank Karen Haines of WASP: she was most welcoming and was almost begging us to use her copious resources.
