District Pages

District pages provide the district to showcase what it is about, which groups operate inside it and who vounteers can contact in case of any problems.

Filling in Content

Each content type is contains relevant fields and all required fields are marked with an asterisk. Please note that depending upon your permission settings you may not have access to all the fields listed below.

1. Content title

Will be displayed at the top of the page, and used throughout the site in any listings.

2. Commissioner

The field links to the user database that the website uses, therefore the District Commissioner must have an account. The link directs the user to a contact form that will email the DC.

3. Charity no.

The 6 digit UK charity number that links to the Charties Commission website so that potential members can get information on the charity.

4. Website

If the district has an external website that they like to maintain then a link will be added from the district page.

5. Menu settings

Every content type allows you to add it to a sidebar menu, this is particularly important for pages as they will not be automatically linked to like other types of content. You can add the content to a menu by expanding this "Menu settings" section, filling in a relevant menu title and selecting the appropriate menu.

You can have nested, hierarchical menu items by choosing another menu item. Also can you set the order in which the items appear by setting the "Weight", by setting the number to minus it will place the item higher up the list.

6. Body

Please see the Content Editor help page for more information.

7. Input format

There are 3 input formats available to use if you have the option:

  • Filtered HTML - Which will give you a simplified editor, used on the user comments input form.
  • Full HTML - Provides a "Word" style editor where you can perform all the basic text formatting commands, can also input images or video if desired.
  • Plain Text - A blank text entry field for those confident of being able to properly input correct HTML so create more advanced designs.

8. File attachments

Please see the File Attachments help page for more information.

9. URL path settings

This section sets the web address, (URL), that the page is found at. Often this will be filled in automatically, but for "Static Page" content types they do have to be filled in manually because of the vast range of possibilities that there could be. Please take into account the existing URL structure of the pages so that we can maintain a logical grouping of addressed pages. If you have any queries on this please contact the Web Team.

10-13. Revision information, Comment settings, Authoring information & Publishing options

If you are looking for information on any of these sections please see the Additional Admin Settings help page.
