Hey everybody, Dr. David Wank here. Thank you so much for downloading our content dentist free accessibility statement. In this video, I want to show you how you can add the content to your website. So here's the file that we downloaded. And of course, you can always send this file to your web developer and ask them to place the accessibility statement on your website, then you're done. However, if you'd like to do it yourself, I'm going to show you how you can do it right here. 99% of the websites we work with are WordPress. And because WordPress is just fantastic, and it's free. That being said, I'm going to show you how to do this in WordPress, but the concepts are the same whether you're using Wix or any other system. So let's double click to open up the file. Now you see here mine is Acrobat Pro. It doesn't matter that you're using Acrobat Pro, it can be Acrobat Reader, which is free, or any other program that you use on your computer, Mac or PC to open up a PDF file. The thing you have to do with the accessibility statement. The reason that it's different from our other content is that our video content or our dental implant content is specific content. And you don't really have to edit it for your name and your phone number. Obviously, we want you to edit all the content you get from us to make it better, and make it more personal. But certainly, this is a unique case, because we do have to enter your web address, and we have to enter your phone number. So let's go ahead and I'm going to show you how to do that. So over here, I'm in WordPress, I've logged in. If you don't know how to log into WordPress you're going to see below this video, there's a link. That link is this link. It's a link to our WordPress informational videos. These are the videos that we give to our clients when they get new websites. But here's a video, you can see 2015 it hasn't changed much on how to log into WordPress. If you forgot your password. Here's how you can reset your password. If for some reason you still can't get in. I would talk to your web developer but you should be able to get in. Let's move back and what we're going to do is we're going to add a page we come to pages add new You can see that WordPress has a visual and a text section. Right now we're going to stay with visual. And we can come over here I'm just selecting with my

2:08
mouse, I'm going to hit Ctrl C,

2:11
or which can do is edit, copy that I'm going to come here into WordPress. And I'm going to hit Ctrl V to paste the content. Now, as you see, the content looks very different than the content it does here. And that's fine, because you don't want to always keep formatting from a PDF or from Word, especially word, because it might not display properly. So I'm going to minimize this because we're done with that. And let's now get a full look at our screen.

2:42
The accessibility statement is our title. Let's make it our title.

2:45
And let's put some space here. And we're gonna make some space so we can make it look like what it looked like before. So we're going to insert our web address. So I'm going to do this. Let's do HTTP, www dot. And you're going to put your address in here, site four dot shd client.com.

3:16
And you're going to highlight it like this.

3:18
And then it's going to have that direct link for you. And there we go. So now who visits our website to feel welcome. I'm going to hit Ctrl C to copy this, or you could just right click and copy

3:31
that I'm going to come back here where it says your website address.

3:37
Same thing. We're going to highlight that and do the link.

3:44
And we're going to do it right here for the website address.

3:54
And there you go. Now, which we could have done, you can also use the website name instead. So If you prefer over here, let's say you want to say iceberg dentistry, but use that link, you could do this who visits iceberg dentistry. And you could actually leave it like that. Or you can put iceberg dentistry and have the link. And of course, obviously, your link would be something like iceberg dentistry, comm or whatever it is, but you can add site for whatever you know, your address happens to be. And there you go, doesn't matter. And so now let's come over there. And

4:30
let's go over here,

4:32
your phone number, so your phone number, it's a little trickier to add a phone number to HTML or to WordPress to make sure to clicks properly. Because the key is you want it to be able to click properly when someone clicks it on their phone, we want it to be able to come up and dial you know, call to click. Let's just type in a random number here. Let's do 123 by 5551212. And so now it's not a regular link, we're just gonna come over here. And we're going to put a link, and we're going to Dotel t L. And now we'll do 1235551212. And there we go. So all of our links are taken care of, I want to make sure that we have that it looks nice, and it's formatted for SEO. Now, obviously, we're not going to be driving traffic to a web page webpage for an accessibility statement is not going to rank. And it shouldn't be nice. So if we look over here, these are HTML headings, and the HTML headings you can think of it as a hierarchy in an outline, tell search engines like Google and visually tell people what's important. So we usually like to have heading one as our title. And that's when you can ask your web developer about the main heading on a page we like to have it as an h2, like you saw before that heading two and let's come over here and then any sub heading could be an h3. So let's come to h3. Now you can see here I made a mistake. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to hit Ctrl Z or Command Z to undo my mistake. Let's make a space, you can always do that. Let's come over here. And there we go, can even back that up.

6:06
So now we have a really nice formatted page.

6:09
So let's take a look and let us publish this. And we're not done, but I want to publish it to see. Great. Now, I'd like to see what it looks like. If you were to click View Page here, it would open it in the same window. So what I would like to do is I would like to open it in a new window, so I can see what it looks like to go back and fix it. So I'm going to here under view page, I'm going to

6:29
right click

6:30
to open this menu, and then I'm going to click left click open link in New Tab to take a look. And there we go. There's our accessibility statement looks really good. Except over here, I don't like this paragraph doesn't look too good. And you know, you might you might say that there should be a blue color or underlined or something. That's the style of your website. If you see something like that. You can ask your web developer about that. But that's something you can discuss with them. And we are good but we can use our contact form. Whoops, we should put a link there for our contact form, and then we'll actually be done.

7:01
So now we can come back here,

7:05
I see that I wanted to add that space, let me click Update.

7:09
And I'm going to come back to our statement here. And I'm going to hit

7:12
Ctrl R or Command R to refresh the page, you can see it looks really good. So for the most part, you can see how the sizing, this is an h1, that's an h2, this is an h3 so logically to our reader, we can see the importance of the items on the page. So the last thing I want to do is add our contact form. Because some people like to use a contact form. Some people like to use the phone. And let's come over here to I don't even know if this website has a contact page on it. This is our test site. Let's see contact does it it does. And so again, if your should have a contact page, if you don't know, you could actually go to your website and look. And if you hover and you see contact, you can click that contact page, and there's the address of your contact page. Let's come back to where we were before. Now we're going to go back to editing and I think He's had here contact form. So we click that. And then when we do it again to show you just back up a minute here, and let's remove the link. So now I want to link our contact form to our Contact Form page, we're going to click the link. And now let's type contact WordPress will search for the contact page, and there it is contact. And let's hit ok there, hit the enter, update it. And let's come back over here. Ctrl R to refresh. And there you go. Now you have a beautiful, well written accessibility statement on your website.
