Continued website tutorial!

Hello Incredible Friends!

Before we get started, an exciting announcement: Incredible Years is now on Twitter! Follow us for up to date news and information!

Moving along…

We wanted to finish up the main portion of our website tutorial. We hope this has been useful as you all get used to the new website! As always, feel free to contact us at any time with questions about where things can be found on our website.

This last tutorial is going to explore the side bar section of the website. There are some very important things here! On almost every page you visit in the website, you will see a side bar on the right hand side. There will be three sections: “Learn More,” “Quick Menu,” and “Newsletter Sign up.”

Let’s start with the “Learn More” section. Depending on where you are in the website, the links here will change. These are very important links! They will lead to further information based on the section of the website you are looking at. For example, if you go to the orange tool bar and hover over “Programs” and then click “Parent Training Programs” you will be taken to the main page for parent programs. The “Learn More” section then has links to each of the different parent programs with specific information to each program. See the illustration below!

The next two sections in the side bar, “Quick Menu” and “Newsletter Sign up” will be the same no matter what page you are on. The Quick Menu has links to common sections of the site, such as the Frequently Asked Questions and Workshop Schedule. The Newsletter Sign Up is just what is sounds like! If you have not yet had a chance to sign up for our monthly newsletter, you are welcome to use this Opt-In form to do so (you can unsubscribe at any time). Our newsletters contain information on upcoming trainings, new research, product information, and more!

8/21/2013 – Continued Tutorial

Hello!

You may notice that our blog has a new look to it! We are happy to announce we have moved over to a wordpress.com blog. You can now leave comments on our posts, search by tags, categories, and archives, and you can even follow us if you have your own WordPress blog!

*Please Remember: We are looking for guest bloggers! If you have an experience with the Incredible Years you would like to share, please e-mail it to: incredibleyears@incredibleyears.com with “Guest Blog” as the subject line*

If you want to head back over to the Incredible Years® main website, click the “Return to Incredible Years Website” link at the top right hand corner of the window.

We’d like to continue our tutorial of our new website by finishing up the exploration of the home page. If you subscribe to our newsletter, you will have already seen this, but repetition never hurts!

We’ve already shown you the main navigation buttons in the top section of the home page, as well as the overview video. But there are more important links if you SCROLL DOWN on that page. If you are already an Incredible Years® Group Leader, Peer Coach, Mentor or Trainer, you will want to utilize this section!! This is where the resources and certification information now live.

Even further down you will see information on Incredible Years® books and upcoming Trainings!

Thanks to all of you who have provided feedback over the last couple weeks, we appreciate the very positive remarks we have been receiving and continue to ask you to let us know your thoughts!

Stay tuned – in the next couple of days we will feature our FIRST GUEST POST from Carolyn Webster-Stratton, developer of the Incredible Years® – she will be providing a summary of an exciting new meta analysis that has just come out about the Incredible Years® programs.

Hello!

We hope you have had some time to explore our new website and see all that it has to offer! We have been receiving some really wonderful positive feedback – thank you! Please don’t hesitate to let us know if you can’t find something, if you notice a broken link, or if you have any suggestions for improved use.

Over the next couple of weeks we will be featuring different sections of the website on our blog to help you with navigation, and also to highlight things we don’t want you to miss!

First, have you seen the new overview video on our home page? Over the years we have had many requests for a “simple” overview of the full Incredible Years® Programs. We hope that this video helps meet people’s needs!

Second, also on our home page, you will notice 5 orange tabs, “For Administrators,” “For Researchers,” “For Group Leaders,” “Workshop Info,” and “Parents & Teachers.” These tabs are here to help you navigate our website, and we have been sure to include information that we hope will be applicable to each of these different groups! We hope you will utilize these tabs and find them useful.
