an Office Live module is a cool, easy way for you to add some of the bells and
whistles generally found in the most professional Web sites.
You can use modules to create anything from a driving direction link (say,
from a visitor’s location to your office) to a contact form designed to help
you build a database from visitors’ contact information.
To add a module to your Web site, follow these easy steps:
1. Click WebSite in the Navigation bar of your Office Live home page.
The Page Manager opens.
2. Click the Page Editor icon on the Page Manager section’s toolbar.
The Page Editor springs to attention.
3. Click Module on the Page Editor toolbar and click the module you want.
There are several modules you can choose:
• Contact Us: Creates a contact form in which a visitor can send you

• Weather: Displays the current weather forecast based on your
• Collect Data: Allows you to create a form to collect data that will be

• Display Data: Displays the data in a list that created in Office Live.
4. Fill in the information required for your selected module and click OK.
The required information is fairly self-explanatory. For example, Figure
5-18 shows the Map & Directions page. Fill in your address (following the
form of the sample provided) and you’re good to go.
5. Click Save on the Page Editor toolbar to save your changes and then
close the Page Editor by clicking the X in the upper-right corner.
