Some of our webtexts contain writing templates. These are designed to guide you through the process of completing your writing assignment.

Templates must be completed in order:

You must complete the templates in order. If you do not complete them in order, you will see a message sending you back to the incomplete template. Remember that “incomplete” could mean that you’ve filled out the template, but you still need to click the Add button. 

You may have to click several links until you are taken back to the incomplete template.

Adding content to your document:

 

After you respond to each prompt, click Save Draft. When you’re done, click the Add button. This will add the content to your document. 

You can change your responses after you have clicked Add by clicking the Edit button. 

The template is not considered complete until you click Add. If you haven’t done that yet, you will be prevented from completing future templates.

The Add button will appear in a lighter color and will not be clickable until the template is finished.

Downloading Your Document: 

When downloading a document, if you cannot see the button, you need to click the Add button first. Then your download button will become visible.  


Your computer will likely place the file automatically in your downloads folder.

The Citation Tool:

Please note that only some webtexts contain this feature. 

Click on the part of the sentence where you want the in-text citation to appear. Then click the Add Citation button. 

Choose the source you wish to cite, and then keep selecting options until all of the dropdown menus have been completed.

Once you’ve chosen an option for each category, the Add Citation button will become clickable. 

You’ll then see your citation in the text. You can add as many citations as you need!

If you’d like to make a change, click on the citation and the box with the dropdown menus will reappear, allowing you to change what you’ve chosen from the menu options. 

Click the X to delete the citation.

Rich Text Editing


Please note that only some webtexts contain this feature. 

If you see a small B or I at the top of the text box, you can format your text if you need to type your citations directly into the template. Select the text you wish to italicize or bold, and then click the button.

Encountering problems?

If you find that the citation tool is not working properly, please check your browser add-ons to see if you have the Grammarly extension installed. It has been known to interfere only with the citation tool in the templates.

You might see it here in the upper right corner of your browser if you do have it installed. It looks like a little green circle. 

If you click on it, you should see an option to disable this extension only while using your webtext. Click the button to toggle from green to grey to the right of “Check for Grammar and Spelling on webtexts.com.” 

If that doesn’t work, go into your settings and disable the extension altogether.

For Chrome:

  1. Click the menu icon “≡” at the top right of the browser window, select “More tools” and choose “Extensions” to open a new tab.
  2. Uncheck “Enabled” to disable Grammarly, or click “Remove” to delete it completely.

For Firefox: 

  1. Click the menu icon “≡” at the top right of the browser window, and choose “Add-ons.”
  2. Find the extension and then click the “Disable” button on the right. 
  3. Restart Firefox to complete the process.

For Edge:

  1. Select the button “…” in the upper right to open the menu.
  2. Select “Extensions” from the menu.
  3. Right-click the extension you want to remove and select “Remove,” or select the extension and click the “Remove” button.
