For Members (except Schools*) to List

  1. Click here or ‘Self Register’ in the footer or go left-hand menu ‘Account>Sign Up’;
  2. Select your category, e.g. tutor and then click 'Next'. See 'Scope Classification' for the definition of the categories; If your business has multiple locations or franchisees, it can be listed under Coaching School / Multiple Locations / Franchisees with 1 account. With Premium Listing, you will have an option to export as separate listings under the categories for an individual with single location, such as Tutor or Music Teacher.
  3. Enter your user name, password, email address, security question and answer. Note the information is also required by menu commands ‘Change Password’ and ‘Recover password’ (if necessary);
  4. Click 'Create User' and then ‘Continue’ to go to your listing page;
  5. Fill in the first form and click ‘Submit’ and then continue with the following forms. For the forms that allow multiple pages, click ‘New’ to add new pages;
  6. Ensure to fill in all the required fields in all the forms;
  7. If a truncation error occurs, make that field entry shorter as it is unnecessarily long.
  8. If not ready for listing, de-select ‘Activate My Listing’ in the first table and then update the form.
  9. Note: The listing must be in English, but you can add words in languages other than English side by side with English words.

  • See the tips on using rich text editors in your listing below. All members have the access to the Simple Editor while a Premium Editor is also available to schools with Premium Listing / Subscription.

Tips for WYSIWYG / HTML rich text editors

  • Two WYSIWYG rich text / HTML editors are available - Simple Editor and Premium Editor. With the Premium editor, you can customise your page such as embedding or linking images / videos / YouTube / HTML5 / slideshow, school logos, location maps, school zones, social media activities and more; see example 1, example 2 and example 3.
  • You can press Maximise button in the Premium Editor for easier editing.
  • After making changes in the editor, press Save button to save first and then update your records.
  • You can view the html document by pressing Source button on toolbar (in Premium Editor) or the menu under Tools (in Simple Editor). In source mode, you can copy and paste html documents into the editor. You can also edit html text within the editor.
  • You can copy WORD documents (excluding images in Simple editor) into the editor.
  • You can copy a linked image from your school website or your browser and paste it using Ctrl + V. You can also do it by the toolbar button or the context menu Insert/Edit (if available). Note that the upload of images is only supported in the Premium Editor via Link button or File Manager hyperlink. You may choose to upload images to our server first and then use links to the images. This applies to other type of documents such as video, slideshow, PDF, WORD, EXCEL and so on. See more editing functionalities.
  • Set width=100% for graphical elements if required to make the elements responsive (auto-resized).
  • You should toggle Source button or the menu under Tools in Simple Editor instead of clicking Show WYSIWYG editor to avoid losing unsaved data.
  • HTML source code templates for your reference.
  • For faster page loading, reduce large image file size to lower resolution, eg. width: 500px before upload.
  • Please find File Manager which replaces the Upload tab of Link window. If you like, you can still Browse Server on Link Info tab. In fact, it opens the same File Manager. With File Manager, you can create, add, rename, delete folders and files. You can also upload, download, preview files or copy a URL link.
  • Recommend to copy source as a backup to avoid loss of your work accidently.
  1. Choose a search engine, Quick Search (search by a field), Google custom search, form-based search and advanced search;
  2. For each search, select a search field, a comparison operator (normally ‘=’) and a value. For numerical fields, you can select ‘>’, ‘<’, ‘>=’, ‘<=’ and ‘<>’ in addition to ‘=’. Typing in on the dropdown list boxes or auto-complete text boxes accelerates your selection;
  3. Note: ‘Quick Search’ searches one field at a time while the form-based Search can search multi-fields altogether. The form-based Search combines the search fields with logic ‘AND’, which means ‘All of them’. The Advanced Search is an intelligent search engine. It knows how to combine the search fields using the logic “All of them” or “Any of them”.
  4. For Advanced Search, select search terms from the dropdown lists (as in 3, any values of same or different fields, any times) and click 'Add' to combine search conditions and then click ‘Search’.
  5. Click on form column headers to sort in ascending or descending orders.
  6. Compare the lists in the first form (grid view).
  7. Click ‘Details’ to check detailed information.
  8. Note: If non-printable characters are displayed because of additional language other than English was used in the member’s listing, you can go ‘Control Panel>Regional and Language Options’ to add the additional language for display.
