HOW TO Create Web Content

Submitted by webmaster on Sun, 11/12/2006 - 00:12.

SHORT ANSWER: It's a lot easier to do than to write about!

 

Registration on this web site is available to all Chapter members. Once you have registered, you may login using your username and password. At the top of the left sidebar, you'll see a menu of things you can do, including "create content". When you click on "create content" in the middle of the screen you'll see a page listing the "types of content" you may create, including a page, a forum topic, a personal blog entry, and more. This HOW TO will focus on creating a web page, however, all content types are created in similar ways.

Click on page, and you'll be taken to a screen where you can edit your page's content. There are several fields of information you can easily select just by pointing and clicking with your mouse. First is the title of the page. It's one of the few required elements, and will show up as a "headline" of your page.

Easy (WYSIWYG) editing

Submitted by admin on Sun, 11/05/2006 - 10:08.

This is a test of link creation via TinyMCE WYSIWYG editor --> EAA

With the WYSIWIG (what you see is what you get) editor, you can easily select fonts and font characteristics, such as color, size, bold, or italics using menu icons that are just like those used in common word processers. You can highlight and indent whole paragraphs, highlight text and make it into a web link, insert images, tables... and more. Of course, you can also do common copy, cut and paste operations. All those functions are readily available to every registered member when he/she is creating site content, like a blog entry, a forum post or comment, or Member Project pages.

If you can do basic text formatting in a word processor, you can do the same on this web site! If you do need more assistance, please contact webmaster@eaa119.org
