ONCE WE GRANT POSTING RIGHTS: To post, you’d go to http://fusionenergyleague.org/admin.php and log in. Same log in info as the forums.
*Sometimes it doesn’t let you log in if you’re already logged in on the forums, so you’d have to log out first. Sometimes it doesn’t matter. If your status is “Member” you won’t see the stuff we’re talking about below.
In any case, Authors - log in.
You’ll see some tabs on the left: “Content” - Click on that,
and then click on “Publish” > “Blog”
Hey presto, the new entry form should open up: (Note the form is under another “Publish” Tab). Fill in form:
Title: title of article
Summary: keep it short
Body: can be long. Images, etc. Some html is helpful, although those buttons are supposed to facilitate with some formatting.
Sidebar: This is the stuff that ends up on the right side of the post.
Action: What action do you want people to take? Include a few short suggestions.
Other tabs to open and fill:
Categories: for example, an article on PPPL breakthrough for use with Magnetic Fusion, scroll down to “contenders” and check the “Magnetic” box; For the OSU post and inertial lasers, check “Inertial”.
Forums: you can simultaneously set up a forum post when you post to the blog.
* Title (it can be unique, or the same as the article)
* Text: A few words would be fine, a link, perhaps.
* Select forum: you need to choose which forum to post this to via the drop down menu.
* In the case of the OSU article, all you need is the Forum Topic ID (for OSU, it was 33) to put in the “forum topic ID” field - below the other fields.
