+<h4>Adding a new Resource</h4>
+<p>Adding a resource could be done for a collection of resources or for an
+  individual resource. To add a collection or directory, click on the "Add resource"/"Add collection" link
+  provided and a page will be presented to fill in the required information.
+  Optionally, a description can be included for the resource in question.</p>
+<p>Note : Adding and and deleting resources within the registry are considered version operations. Therefore, provision is made to rollback or restore a resource to any previous version. 		Refer Versions for additional information on this topic.</p>
+<h4>Deleting a Resource</h4>

+<h3><a name="Permissions" id="Permissions">Permissions</a></h3>
+<p>Using the following screen, WSO2 Registry permissions can be assigned to different roles and individual users. The top half of the permission's screen is used to define user roles and the bottom half for defining role permissions.</p>
+<p><img src="images/permissions.png" width="812" height="620"/></p>
+<p>Figure : Permissions </p>
+<p>To assign permissions to users or roles follow the steps given below:</p>
+  <li>select user/role from User/Role drop down</li>
+  <li>choose an action from the 'Action' drop down menu</li>
+  <li>select permission type. users are able to choose 'Allow' or 'Deny' by selecting appropriate option button.</li>
+  <li>Click 'Add Permission' to apply selection</li>
+<p>Existing permissions can be changed by selecting and clearing the check boxes  for required permissions and clicking the "Apply All Permissions" button.</p>
+<p><b>Note:</b> 'User permissions' have higher priority over 'role permissions'. 'Deny' permissions have higher priority over 'allow' priorities. Essentially, this means that permissions assigned to users overrides permissions assigned for a role and that a deny permission always overrides an 'allow' permission assigned to a user.</p>
+<p>The right side of the resources page houses 3 additional blocks, namely: Tags, Comments and Versions.</p>
+<h3><a name="TagsW" id="TagsW">Tags</a></h3>
+<p>Provides space to enter tags for a given resource. These tags can be used when searching for a resource as key words for search criteria.</p>
+<p>Users can enter as many tags as they like provided individual tags are separated by commas and a given tag is not used by the same author to identify the same resource repeatedly.</p>
