Here I'll post help instructions on anything you want... If you have any questions about the internal working of the site, post them here as comments. I'll update the help pages accordingly!

Taxonomy

What is taxonomy? You can have a look at the pages linked underneath, or be happy with my brief description: on this site, it is a way to help us classify all information on the site.

http://drupal.org/handbook/modules/taxonomy

http://drupal.org/node/81589

Once you have a load of tagged data, it's hard to make changes to taxonomy structures (apart from adding terms) without rendering existing nodes much harder to find. Trust me, NO ONE will go back and edit existing data, not in real life, unless there is massive funding for that purpose.

Taxonomy is a way of naming things, of labelling things.

When we use proper labels (or tags or categories or keywords: all mean the same thing in our case) when adding data to our system, it becomes quite easy to create some structure (a classification) and to find things. Using the correct taxonomy structure is very important, as is mentioned above. We should try to start with as good a structure as possible.

Content administrators have the ability to create new categories, which are vocabularies of labels. A vocabulary can be assigned to one or more content types, and per category, access permissions can be set. Certain user roles will be able to see content from one category, but maybe not from another. One user role can edit information with a certain category label attached to it, another will have read-only access.

Not clear? Post questions here as comments, and I'll try to explain better!


Create content

For every content type you can create on this site, I'll add a child page.  Feel free to post questions as comments.


Books

What's a book?

Books are one of the most powerful content types. In my blog I'll explain things about books when needed or when asked, and while doing so use the most interesting feature available to books: outlining.

Outline pages

Any content type can be added to a book tree. When you can edit the content, then you'll have a tab called 'outline' available to you. Just click on it, and choose a good parent for your page. That's it!

Hierarchy

By default, children are added in alphabetical order. If you need pages to appear in a different sequence, please contact one of the content administrators who will be able to alter the book hierarchy.

Book navigation

Presently, Book navigation is switched on. As soon as you're visiting a page which is part of a book, you'll have an extra block in the left sidebar showing you a navigation map of the book in question.

 


Posting images

I'll presume you're using the english menu system in what follows.

Image galeries

View image galleries

As it says, it shows the available image galleries, so you can select one, and view the pictures.

Image galleries

This menu option allows you to administer the available galleries, or to create new ones. Before uploading a new image, make sure the gallery in which you'ld like to put it, exists.

Posting images

You can create images first, and include them in your pages later, or you can post images while creating a page.

Create an image

Create content->Image

Select an appropriate title, and Browse to the image you want to upload. Images will be automatically reduced in size when uploaded, but if you are working on a slow connection, it is advisible to reduce the size yourself before uploading it.

In human language: use your favourite image editor, and save a copy of your image at a resolution of about max. 1024x1024 pixels. Save the copy in jpg or png format. Your picture will get a size of at most 100KB and will upload very quickly.

If your picture is a true piece of art, please leave it at high quality when uploading (eg 2048x2048 max size). It allows for good quality printing Cool.

Select a proper image gallery for your picture.

Select proper content categories for your image. If required, first edit 'categories' using the main menu. This I explain on another page .

In the 'body' box, you can type some text describing where the picture was taken, what it's about, etc.

Post images while creating a page

Make sure you 'enable rich-text' so you get to work using the tiny-mce text editor. You'll find a button looking like a camera. Use that button to insert a picture in your text. The following window pops up:

Img_assist screenshotImg_assist screenshot

 

 

 

 

You can browse the available images in many ways, mainly depending on the tags you attached to your images using the proper categories and keywords.

When you select to upload a new picture, you'll get (in the little pop-up window) the same page as you get when you decide to create an image as described just above. So I'l not repeat those steps Smile.

After creating or selecting the picture, fill in the dialog box's fields:

img_assist screenshot 2img_assist screenshot 2

 

 

 

 

If you fill out the title, the text you enter there will be printed under the image, as a subscript. Select the desired size; if you select 'Thumbprint' your page will load very quickly, and people interested in seeing the picture in detail, can click on it (make sure to select the proper option in the Link-field).

Insert mode should be left on 'Filter Tag'.
