Many times members come across good informational jewels that can help other members. The Resource page is the place to put that. You may wonder why a Resource instead of a Blog article. A blog entry is more conversational and like a magazine article with some category/tag organization. A resource (in our context) can be like a blog but more often is specific information. We have a great way to organize resources, with folders/sub folders making it easy to browse and find what you need.

Resource Adding Procedure

Hopefully this makes it straight forward to add a resource. If you have any questions contact me for assistance.
