Goal To provide for a short fact to be displayed on the Main Page each day.

Use If you want add something:

  • Make an extra subpage. The name must be the next available number. So for exemple <Did you know/8>
  • Change the code in the upper section. The number should be equal to the number of quotes present. So change the number with the old number + 1. For exemple <8>
  • Add the quote under The facts (current collection)


To change a particular fact just change the sub-page.
