Working with the Latest Tendenci Modules

  1. 1. Working with the latest Modules
  2. 2. Go to www. [your site here] .com/en In the admin bar at the top of your screen, click on “Content” Go through the dropdown to “Pages” and click the Plus symbol to add a new page
  3. 3. When you go to the Pages Module, you will see a list of pages that have beencreated. You can also add a page here.
  4. 4. When adding a page, you can customize it to yourneeds. You have your:• Title – Page Title•URL Path – automatically generates to match the page title,however you can edit it to what you want•Content – The WYSIWYG editor allows you to format thecontent and give it the desired look•Tags – this is used to pull in certain pages or content toareas in the sidebars, homepage, etc.•Header image – A photo that goes above the page•Template – if your site has multiple templates, you canchoose the one you want the content to appear in•Permissions – this is to determine who can view the page,i.e. public, members, “superusers”•Administrator only – this is if the content needs only bevisible to the “superusers” who can access anything on thesite•Category – this is similar to tags in that you can have areaspull in pages or content from a specific category•SEO Meta – For optimization purposes and search engineinformation
  5. 5. To make the content move easiest, we recommend copy + pasting from theseprograms. TextEdit and NotePad both remove formatting (bolding, erroneousspacing, colors) in order to make editing your content in the any content moduleeasiest.
  6. 6. The Stories module is generally used tomaintain and add content for your site’srotator.* You can add Stories from the admin bar andTendenci dashboard – just like pages.Differences:•Content field – used to write excerpt of text toentice the reader to “Read More”•Full Story Link•Link title, i.e. “Read More”, “Check it out!”•Tags – to easily add more stories to the rotator•Start & End Date/Time – If it’s a contest,featured article, etc.•Expiration – if you only want it to run until yourspecified end date/time
  7. 7. An example is YMCAHouston, using theTendenci Storiesmodule for theirrotator.
  8. 8. This module is used to highlight and share officialpress releases and/or pieces printed about yourcompany or organization.Differences:•Headline – Title of the news release•Summary – for when someone searches your newspublications on the site, they’ll see this•Body field – the content of the news article•Source/Website fields – If you were mentioned on anothersite and are repeating the content, it is best to put theoriginal news piece URL here, as a courtesy and for link-backpurposes•Release Date/Time•Contact fields – for someone inquiring about moreinformation, this is the details on who they would contact
  9. 9. The Articles module is essentially the samelayout as the news module, with the samefields.However, the Articles module is intended tobe used for knowledge sharing. This is similarto blogging for your company.Here you would post content that yourcompany has published, or depending onyour industry – product reviews, industryrelated advancements and news, etc.
  10. 10. Forms are used through your site tocollect site visitor information.These are used to create contact forms,contest submission forms, quote requestforms, etc.When you add a form, you are first prompted to create the title,introduction text, confirmation text after submission, and set up theemails that will be sent to the submitter (if you want) and the personcollecting the submissions. You can also use this to create a thank youemail or confirmation email to send.
  11. 11. Once you’ve created the text and description aspects of theform, you can now create fields.There are several field types and also special functionalityfields. A few examples are seen here below.Label is the field nameType is what you want the field to be, i.e. checkbox,dropdown, one line of text, paragraph, etc.Special Functionality is for specific fields such asFirst Name and Last Name, these are logged withinthe Tendenci backend for you to export.Default text is what shows up in the field beforesomeone begins to type in it.
