Once a valid email address has been filled in the form, you will be prompted with a Check your Email Message:

Once the link that you've got in the email has been clicked on, it will ask you for a few basic details such as Password, first name, last name, etc. Make sure all the details are filled in.

After all the details have been filled in, you will end up on a Quick Set up For the Web page.

6. Add a Custom Link to the Primary menu using the Custom Links option:
