Browsing

There are two ways to browse from the OAsis homepage:

  1. Via the list of communities in the middle of the page, and
  2. Via the Browse area in the sidebar (Figure 3).

To browse via method 1, select the community that you wish to browse from the list. To browse via method 2, select an option from the Browse area of the sidebar.
