These items don't need to be created as separate pages, or even as part of existing pages, and may not need any HTML usage at all, or even assigning a page reference (URL). Using the Drupal Story concept will automatically ensure that each such item will appear as a separate item in the RSS feed. It is assumed that none of these items need to appear in the navigation menu.
In the Administer page go to Create content->Story (or use http://www.britgo.org/node/add/story) and then:
should include the word Tournament or Teaching Event if it is one
(this duplicates the News type, but it appears in the RSS feed item)
- News Type
Always select the correct one (as this means that you can see all items of the same type together)
- Tournament Date
This and the following three fields should not be used except for Tournament Reports and perhaps Diary entries.
The To Date should only be entered for a tournament/event over multiple days
- Tournament Type
Can be ignored
Could be omitted, but it's desirable to have at least the town and postcode
Assumes the Input format defaults to Markdown (if not then change it):
- Diary Entries should be entered as (mmm is Month and YY year)
[Diary Entry added or updated](/tournament/index.html#mmmYY)
- Tournament results should be entered as
- Other Site Updates should be entered as
- Any text can be used for all other News Types, with an internal britgo.org link being entered simply as
- All other options should normally be the defaults (URL path settings and Menu settings do not need to be used except in exceptional circumstances).
- In the event of doubt the Publishing options should be
Promote to Front Page (creates an RSS entry)
- ALWAYS PREVIEW BEFORE SUBMITTING
- When you're happy with what it looks like then press SUBMIT
- There's no need to create a URL reference, unless this needs to be referred to from a menu, as Drupal handles all the internal references.
- The list of new news items is generated automatically.
- If you need to create another kind of link to this item then you can use /node/NNNN as the reference, rather than having to use a .html one.
