Members of the WOW team have decided that there should be some conformity as to the spelling of certain 'webring' related words and how they are used, when editors are adding content to their WOW website page/s:
(Capitalized 'W' only in headers, and at the beginning of a sentence)
The general term for all webrings, with the word 'ring' being only used in a article after the first use of the word 'webring', and it is clear that the word 'ring' refers to a webring.
(Not used are the words 'web ring', Web Ring, or 'WebRing')
The name of a commercial webring system.
(Not used are the words 'WebRing', 'Web Ring', or 'Webring')
(Capitalized 'R' only in headers, and at the beginning of a sentence)
The general term for a person who manages a webring.
(Not used are the words 'Ring Master' or 'RingMaster')
Navpanel and Navbar
(Capitalized 'N' only in headers, and at the beginning of a sentence)
The panel or bar used for navigating a webring.
When describing the code or script for a navpanel and/or a navbar use 'navpanel code/script', and/or 'navbar code/script'. The words 'code' or 'script' being only used in a article after the first use of the words 'navpanel code/script' and/or 'navbar code/script', and it is clear that the word 'code/script' refers to the code/script of a navbar and/or a navpanel.
(Not used are the words 'NavPanel', 'NavBar', 'Nav Panel', 'Nav Bar', and... )
All admins, sub-admins, and page admins are welcome to start adding content, just pick a page (or two) and go for it. Our priority at the moment is getting the pages filled, as you may have noticed most are empty right now, which is not good, so we have got some quick work to do.
Please change the editor name on the page/s you would like to look after, that way everyone else will know that they have been claimed, do not forget that you need to manually change the date under your name each time that you update your content.
Please be realistic about the number of pages you are managing, only add your moniker if you are 100% committed to managing those pages, and updating them as others make suggestions in the WOW mailing list. To ensure that everyone has a fair chance of contributing to the WOW project, please limit your selection to a maximum of 2 or 3 pages for now.
The sooner the content is added to a page, the stronger your claim as editor for that page will be asserted. If you leave a page empty, half-finished, or not updated as others make suggestions, then it will be passed on to someone else who can more actively manage the content of that page.
All admins, and sub-admins who have access to all the content, will only edit pages that they manage, unless requested by the page admin for the specific page he or she manages. If you want to contribute something to a page, point out a typo, or dispute something said or alleged on that page, then please either send your fellow WOW member a private message, and/or post a message on the WOW mailing list.
How to Add Content
If the content item is already listed in the menu, and the page linked to it has already been created:
You would first log in to the WOW website.
Depending on what permissions you have been granted by the team leaders, once logged in you would see the word 'Edit' next to the word 'Menu' at the top of the WOW menu. If not, then you have only permission to edit a specific page, and must then go to that page to edit it.
If you see the word 'Edit' next to the word 'Menu', click on it, then click 'View Content Items', and then click 'Edit' next to the name of the page which you wish to edit.
You would then click 'Select All' in your text/html editor, click 'Copy', and then in the box area 'Content Text' you would click 'Paste'. Finally you would click 'Update Content Item'.
If you do not see the word 'Edit' next to the word 'Menu', go to the specific page you manage and click 'Edit'. You would then click 'Select All' in your text/html editor, click 'Copy', and then in the box area 'Content Text' you would click 'Paste'. Finally you would click 'Update Content Item'.
Note: When creating content in your text/html editor, you can use any html tags and/or style attributes (style=" ")! You can also refer to the WOW website's CSS Style Guide, and use any of the style attributes listed within (class=" ").
If the content item is not listed in the menu, and the page linked to it has not been created:
If you are a page admin, please contact one of the admins or sub-admins, and ask that they set things up for you.
