How to use the site
We want everyone to be able to get the most out of the ASLEF website, experienced and unexperienced alike. Below are some web terms which have been explained to help you naviagte round the site more easily.
The Homepage is the first page of the website, also known as the front page. It should contain easy access to all the major features of the site and is usually the starting point for all traffic to the website.
The Navigation bar is the grey bar that runs across the page and contains the headings/tabs for the main areas within the site. The navigation bar is on every page throughout the site.
Lefthand navigation is a list of the different pages within that section of the website.
Throughout the site you will see text/words that are underlined. If you move your mouse cursor over the word it will turn red and the cursor will change to a hand shape, this is called a text link. Text links will either take you to another part of the site, open up a document or take you to another website.
The Search facility is located in the top right hand corner of the page. To use the search you need to place your mouse cursor over the white box that says 'search', it will then change to a text cursor, when this happens lick on the mouse. You will then be able to type in the word for what you are looking for, for example, Virgin Trains, then click on the grey search button. The search results will be listed on the page with the most relevant at the top.
Throughout the site you will see Help icons or Hints and Tips. These have been added to the site to help users navigate through the site easier.
