Your Link List
Help Doc.

Introduction

Your Link List is a website that can be used as your 'home page' or as a reference website for internet searching and web browsing. First, there are multiple 'Categories' or 'Headings' with website links listed under each 'Category' or 'Heading'. Initially, there is a default webpage with default headings and several website links pre-loaded, but the site will also allow the user to login, generate their own home page, modify the initial headings and modify the link content by dragging and dropping the web link (if using Chrome or Safari) or by clicking "Add New" and adding their favorite web sites to match what they wish to access on the web.
