How to use Practical Labelling Guidance

Sign up and Log in

  1. Fill in the sign up form as requested, choose a password and click NEXT to pay using a Paypal Account as directed. (Do not be alarmed if Paypal sends you an email after payment has been approved saying your subscription is cancelled - we cannot change Paypal's procedures! You will have access to the guidance until the end of your subscription. It is the way Paypal handles one-off payments).
  2. When you have paid, you will be directed to the log in page. You should also receive a confirmation email with your details for future reference. Confirm your email address as directed.
  3. Log in with your email address and password. You will be taken to the landing page.
  4. Accept the terms and conditions using the "I Accept" button at the top or bottom of the page to access the site.
  5. If the log in form says you are already logged in, click on "contents" in the top navigation bar to access the Contents Page.
  6. If you have paid and are unable to access the site, please contact us using the contact form outlining your problem or call us on 01572 812312.

Navigating the site

Once you are logged in and have agreed to the terms and conditions, there should be a search box at the top of the page. The main page headings are shown across the top navigation bar, so you can find them easily.

There is a log out button at the top of each page.

Within the contents page, there are links to pages/documents.

If you go to a pdf document, or another website through one of the links, it should open a new window (may depend on your browser settings) if so, close the window to go back to the previous page. Otherwise, use the back button in your browser to go back.

The site will log you out after a period of inactivity (usually about 10 mins), so you will need to log in again to access the site.

Search and navigation

The search facility may be used to find a specific term or phrase. Results will appear on a new page with your search term highlighted.

Please remember when you go to a result, only the exact word or phrase you actually searched for will be highlighted. For example if you searched for minced, results for mince and mincing may also appear in the results list. However, in the document you click on from those results, only the word minced will be highlighted.

Links from the search page should open in a new window or tab.
