We are aware that some members of the Kidsgrove community are not as web wise as some of our more regular members. We also recognise that even some of our regular members may not have fully explored the whole of the Kidsgrove resources and features available to them.
As a result, we have produced this brief user guide. This guide covers the basics of using Whitehill Online and interacting with Kidsgrove residents and Kidsgrove resources. We hope that you find this guide a useful resource.
All the main Kidsgrove news articles are displayed on the Home Page of the website. Our main display will scroll though the most recent news articles which have been published. Clicking on the article title in the scrolling display will take you to the article page for reading.
If you scroll down the Home Page you will also find copies of the latest news articles, as well as links which you can click on to refer to older articles.
All our news articles can be read. These can be found in the Kidsgrove News menu at the top of the page. At the bottom of the Kidsgrove news section is a collection of page numbers which you can click these to scroll though the website pages.
In addition to all of this you can use the Search box in the top right hand section to search for any Kidsgrove news article which interests you. This search feature works best when you make your search more specific. Eg. “Kidsgrove” will bring up many results where as “Kidsgrove swimming pool” will bring up more focused Kidsgrove news articles linked to Kidsgrove Swimming Pool.
