Read the Understanding MGI Section first if you are a new MGI user.

Using MGI

In the Using MGI section, you will learn how to use MGI in your web site by following step-by-step instructions for typical MGI functions such as displaying banner ads, processing forms to email, searching databases, and shopping online.
