Help:Adding an article

From ScottishClimbs

Jump to: navigation, search

ScottishClimbs has a long (5 years) history of bringing you community contributed articles. With the advent of SCWiki it has become even easier for you (and us!) to add content. Here are a few guidelines to get you adding your next masterpiece.

  • Firstly, you'll want to got to the Articles page and add a link to your news item. Load up the page and click the edit tab at the top of the page.
  • Add your link with the following style above the last article item.
*[[Article title]] - dd/mm/yyyy
 A short description of the article.
  • Please get the formatting right as it makes our lives easier and makes the site look way better.
  • Once you've added the text save the page and then click the link you just made.
  • Once the editing form has loaded you can add your text with the following formatting:
''Your Name - dd/mm/yyyy''
 The text of the article should go here.
  • If you want to add some pictures, feel free to do so.
  • Hit preview to see what it's going to look like and if you're happy, hit save.
  • That's really all there is to it although you should know that a new article does not show up on the Main Page until it has been approved by one of the staff.

Note: If your work is quite personal don't worry about anybody changing it - after the article has been approved it will be locked down so as to prevent any changes.
