This document deals with how to create and prepare an article.  It's easy.  The website has a build in text editor that should be familiar if you've experience with a web-based e-mail service.  Alternatiively, you can prepare the doucment on a piece of software like Microsoft Word or any other word processing program, then just copy the contents and paste them into the text editor, but more on that in a moment.  Continue reading and you'll learn what to do next.

Image on the User Menu

So, the first thing you have to do is to find out how to submit an article.  On the left, you see an image of the "User Menu."  You will only see this User Menu if you have logged on.   So, if you don't know how to log on, go back and read the document on that subject.

You're logged on and ready to create an article.  Go to the User Menu and find the bullet point call Submit an Article.    The other two items, Your Details and Submit a Web Link are described in a separate document.  They're pretty self explanatory.

Note, this menu also has one final option: the option to logout.  The logout opion is the final bullen point in the User Menu.

There's just one more topic to be discussed, Breadcrumbs.  Breadcrumbs gives the menu trail that you have followed.  If you want to back up to the more recent level, you can click on that page in Breadcrumbs.  In this case, you started off on the Home Page, then selected Submit an Article.  To get back to where you started, just click on that link, which is Home.

So, you click on Submit an Article and this is what you will see.

Submitting an article

This interface is used to type your artcie.  Right below the title bar–the light green bar with the Submit an Article for Publication title–you'll see a box where you can enter the title of the article.  Right below the Title Bar is a series of icons that dictate how the article will appear.

Start off by typing in your article.  You can use the items on the menu bar to format the article.  As you drive the mouse from icon to icon, a small drop down menu will appear that describes what that icon does.  Probably, the most commonly used ones are the B, which is highlighted, makes what is highlighed in the article bold.  The I puts things in italics.  The U underlines the highlighted text.

Where you see Heading 4, you can select different styles from the dropdown menu for various headers in your article.  You can also change the font, see the Font Family dropdown menu and select which one you want.

The next two lines consist of choices that you may not use that often.   The first icon on the second line allows you to change a series of selected lines into a bulleted list; the next icon allows you to make a numbered list.  After that, just scroll over the icons and decide for yourself if you want to use one.

Now, you can always just copy and paste from an existing word processor.  You can select an article from Microsoft Word.  You could select the information from an e-mail you received, even from another website.  Keep in mind, do not submit material that is under copyright.  It will be removed.  It can be tricky to use a few editor, so feel free to copy and paste from an existing source.

How do I copy and paste?

Easy!  Left click and, while holding down the left mouse key, scoll over what you want to copy.  It will be highlighted.  It will change from the white background to a black backgound.  Once the items are highlighted, either right click and select copy or to up to the the top menu–the one on the very top of the screen where you see File Edit, etc.–and select Edit; choose Copy from the dropdown menu.  The go to where you want to paste the information–in the editor that's open–and then right click and select paste.  What you copied should appear.

What's next?

Once you have added the text you want, you can click Save.  You'll find save on the top right about the editor.  However, you can garnish your article a little more.  That information is next.

More touches to your article

The focused next is on the image below.  For now, ignore the Image, Pagebread and Read more buttons.  As you see from the website, articles appear in specific places in the meu system.  You can select now where the article should appear.  You select the Section first–that's the main menu items like, say News or Irsh Wolfhound.   You then select the Category, for news that means The Latest News or News from Ireland, etc. 

Next you have the choice of putting the article on the Front Page!  Keep in mind that the article is reviewed before it's published; that is, appears on the website, so chances are, the Front Page option will be unselected.

If you don't want to use your own name, enter the new identification in Author Alias.  You can select the date at which the article should appear; leave this option blank and it will apepar immediately.  If you want the article to vanish on a certain date, enter it here.  Note, the calendar item isn't working right now, so you'll have to enter the dates manually.  The dates are entered as year-month-date, so the Fouth of July, 2008 is entered as 2008-07-04.  If you want to enter the actual time you want it to appear, use Military Time or the 24 hour clock.  So, if you want it to appear an 1:32 p.m. and 39 seconds on July 4th, enter 2008-07-04 13:32:39.

You can decide where the general Public can see the article or if only those who have Registered.  For now, don't select Special, as it applies to only very few people who use this site.

The box that says Metadata Description is used by search engines.  It's the details that appear on a link.  Keywords is used by both robots–search engine software that read through and index the site–use this informatoin.  It's also used by the Search function and Related Articles that appears on every page.

Don't be scared about writing an article.  Most of what's detailed here isn't needed.  Once your article is written and saved, someone else takes a look at it before it's published.  So, you don't really need to worry about all the details; they'll be added for you.
