Q
How do I add a menu to The Grub Club web site?
A
This system is designed so that menus can be added without
any programming or web design experience. We tried to make
it as easy and user friendly as possible. However, this was
done by people who spend all day at the computer so what
seems easy to them may not be easy to you.  We will keep
working on making it easier.

1) Register
2) Enter Restaurant info - address, phone, etc.
3) Choosse a name for the Menu, ie. Dinner
4) Next add Categories, ie. Appetizers, Entree, Salad,
Dessert etc.
5) Now choose the link "Add / Edit Items in this Category"
and start adding items to the Category.  This is where you
out the item name, description and price.
6) When you are done with a Category click the "Admin Home"
link on the left to get bact to the main menu.

From the main menu you will notice the links "Preview Menu"
and "Printable Menu (pdf)" next to the menu name.  These
links allow you to preview and printout your menu as you go
along so that you can tell how everything is working.

Note:  If you cannot see your address correct State
name to the abbreviation or correct the Country to the
3-letter ISO abbreviation, ie. USA for United States.

Please make sure to read the hints as you go along.

Good Luck!
