How to Post Content

There are five types of content currently setup on this site.

  • Articles - which are basic pages containing text, images, links, etc but which also allow others to post comments/feedback about the page which appear at the bottom. Articles are organised into a hierarchical tree like structure, each has a parent article and may also have one or more child articles.
  • Events - which are Articles with a start and finish date/time. Events are automatically displayed in the Calendar and are not organised hierarchicaly.
  • Images - which as one would expect are images/photos that are uploaded to the sites Photo Gallery.
    PLEASE NOTE: These are NOT the same as images you attach to nodes - There is still work to be done to integrate the two.
  • Web Links - which are links to other websites, organised into categories.

To add content to the site Login and click "Create content" from the menu on the left hand side. You will be given a choice between the two types of content detailed above. You can follow the respective links above to find out more about how to create them.

The fifth type of content is comments. Posting comments is a great way of contributing to the site without needing to write a whole article. It's comments that give the site a community feeling and help keep the energy up so that it grows and attracts new people.

To add a comment simply click the "Add new comment" link at the bottom of most pages, type your comment and click the "Post Comment" button. If you would like to see how your comment will look before posting it you can click "Preview Comment" instead but don't forget to click "Post Comment" when you're happy with it otherwise your comment will not be saved.
