LAKE MITCHELL WEBSITE NAVIGATION

The Lake Mitchell website versions optimized for computers, smart phones, and tablets. Both the standard view and the mobile view have the same address: www.lakemitchell.org. For navigation, when viewing the site on a computer, all the links are along the left side of the pages. Some of the page links have sub-pages, so clicking on a main page will reveal more pages under that category. (For example, clicking on Weed Control brings forward seven more pages.) To return back to the main menu, just click the Home page at the top. A listing of all the pages on the site can be accessed via the Site Page List link in the menu or by clicking the button on the bottom of each page. For navigation on phones and tablets, notice the three horizontal lines at the top left corner of the site. Touch that and the full menu appears.
