Items Module


This system provides the ability to add and manage news items on the website. The news items are organised in groups. There is one group per Tandem Club regional group, the group TandemClub for general admin and news items and a group for major tandem club events.

You can add news items through a simple, mobile friendly page or via a more advanced form entry system.

Mobile Friendly Page

This page provides a list of the most recent messages for the group set in the selection box at the top of the page. There is a special group selection of "All", to list the messages from all groups.

At the bottom of the page are the controls to add a news item. You must be logged into the website to post new items. There is an "Adv" button that brings up a more advanced news item entry form. The selection box at the bottom selects which group you will post into. There is a picture button to add a picture from a file or directly from a camera if used on a mobile phone or other device with camera. The one line text entry box allows you to type your message.
The message will be sent by pressing the "Send" button or pressing the "Enter" key.

If you add a picture in your user perferences, then this will be shown at the left of the message. You can also click on the cycle hat or your image to update it. Note that due to WEB browser caching it may take a minute for the main items view to update to this new picture for all users.

News item management

For those with admin permistions it is possible to edit and delete news items. The left hand menu (use the top menu's left hand menu button to activate) provides some functions in order to do this.
