This most likely will be your home away from home. A few features should be pointed out here. If you have created categories on your site, you can place your articles into a category to further separate your topic content. This works like a sub-category of Topics, but allows you to create a grouping of articles that may span several topics. You also can select to NOT publish the article on the homepage, but ONLY if a category other than "articles" was selected. It is also highly recommended you use a text editor to prepare your article. This is because if you use your "back" button after previewing the article in order to make changes, the article will be lost. This can be VERY frustrating.
Table 6.2. New Article Entry Options
|Title||Enter the story title. Try to be short and descriptive.|
|Topic||Select the desired topic for this story. If no topic is selected the default selection will be the first topic in the database.|
|The Story||This is the main body of text that will appear on your home page. You can place your entire article here if you like, or just an introduction to the main article.|
This space allows you to add more info for your story. If your article is a long one, the biggest part will go here. If there is Extended Text you will see a Read More... link in the Home under this story box. You may use HTML code in your articles, however the text sanitizer will only recognize certain HTML markups.
The current allowed markups are: <a>, <b>, <blockquote>, <code>, <div>, <em>, <i>, <li>, <ol>, <p>, <pre>, <strike>, <strong>, <center>, <sub>, <sup>, <img>, <tt>, <u>, <ul>, <image> .Naturally, this also includes the closing statments as well.
|Preview Admin Story||Select this option to see a preview of this story. It is good practice to always double check your spelling, grammar, and links! Read your article and correct the text if needed, then you can post the story. Remember that going back to edit the article will erase your previous article. Please use a text editor when writing your initial article so you have a copy available.|
|Post Admin Story||If you are 100% sure that your story is well written and the URLs are OK you can post it directly without previewing it.|
