Starting the Editing Process
This will take you to the My
Account page, as shown in the image below. The My Account
page lists all the Tracks you have made.

button, when you want to edit an existing Track in your account. As shown in
the image below, each Track has an Edit button in the form
of a Pencil icon. Click on the Pencil to Edit
the Track of your choice.
You can also edit a Track directly
from the Track itself (rather than from your account home page). The front page
of your Track contains an Edit Track link in the lower right-hand corner
of the window. Please see the image below, which shows the front page of Track
209504, a Track on math.
When you click Edit
Track on your Track's front page, you will need to enter your login information
and then you will be taken to the Editing Your Track form, whose layout
is identical to the Make a Track page. The top of the page looks like
this. Notice that the title of your Track and all of the other information is
already completed in the form.
In the Editing Your Track
form, make any changes you want to the Track information and description. To
edit your link titles, URLs, and annotations, click the Next
button as shown in the image above, and this will take you to your Track Update
page. Should you need to return to this page at any time after you clicked Next,
please use the blue Back button provided by TrackStar and not
your browser back button.
Links and Annotations
The Track Update page allows
you to instantly see all the links in your Track, and provides a real-time
preview of the pages and annotations in the form, so it requires a browser
Explorer 3.0 and up).
An Explanation of the Form
When you are on your Track
Update page, you'll see a form like the one below.
You can use the tools on this page
to perform many different editing functions to your Track. Each site you list
will have these tools available for your use. Theup
arrow will move the current site you are working on up one level. For example,
if you want to move your Site #2 to the Site #1 position then you can click
this arrow and it will move Site #2 up one level to replace Site #1. Site
#1 then is renamed Site #2. The
down arrow is just the opposite of the up arrow. It moves the current site
down one level. The
red x will delete the current site. For instance if you click on the delete
icon while you are on Site #2, then just Site #2 will be permanently deleted.
TrackPack Out will add a link in that you have previously stored in your TrackPack.The
TrackPack In will add the current link you are working on to your TrackPack
as well as in the Track you are working on. To learn more about TrackPack
and its uses, please visit the TrackPack help

to in a new window, which lets you check to make sure that all your links
are working properly.

notice that a blank space is left in your Track. Once you are done editing
the Track and click Save, the system will know to automatically erase those
blanks in your Track.
