I am trying to edit a file in sharepoint for the first time.
Let me tell you the steps I have taken and how things go wrong and maybe I can get some advice. The sharepoint file is on a server that I log into remotely. I run the "Sharepoint 2010 Central Administration". On the page that comes up, I click on "Manage web applications" under "Application Management".
From there, I see the page I want to edit. But when I click on the name of the item (which appears in red text) the area is hilighted but nothing happens. In the ribbon menu at the top of the page there is a drop down entitled "Site Actions" but there is no option there to "edit". Please advice.
I was given a username and password to "log in" because I was told I need that. The idea was that maybe I need a special admin account to see the missing menu options to edit a page. But, first of all, this was not the kind of username to log on to the OS. Then I tried to use it to log onto the Sharepoint Central Administration. But this did not work.
