You will see different fields where you can fill in or edit information of the section. These are: Title: Fill in the title of the section. This field is required.

Alias: This name is a shortened title of the section, used when using SEF.

Published: Select Yes when you want the section to be published, and No when you do not want the section to be published.

Order: The order of the section in the Section Manager. When making a new item, the section will have the default setting of the last place. The order can be changed when editing the section after it is saved.

Access level: The access level of this section. Choose between Public (every one can see it), Registered (all users can see it) or Special (every one with a higher group then 'Registered' can see it).

Image: Select the image of the section. The images you can choose from are the images from the folder /images/stories.

Image position: Select the position of the image. You can choose between left, center and right.

Description: Enter here the description of the section. The editor shown depends on the settings of the specific editor of the user and the editor set in the Global Configuration.

Version Changes

Version Changes Placeholder

Describe any significant changes between the 1.0.x series and the 1.5 version of this particular screen. For example Content Items are now Articles and Static Content Items have become Unassigned Articles. Use paragraph format type and do not add extra white space. Ensure that you use the correct styles for inline emphasis and notices.

Please remove this placeholder as soon as you start entering text here.

Typical Usage

Typical Usage Placeholder

This is the most important new section in these Help Screens. This is the meat on the bones of the Help Screen. This should represent the typical basic usage of the screens' functionality in normal use. Write it as a guide not just as a sequence of instructions - except when this is required. Include links to other screens that are needed to complete the function effectively. Use paragraph format type and do not add extra white space. Ensure that you use the correct styles for inline emphasis and notices.

Please remove this placeholder as soon as you start entering text here.

Points to Watch

Points to Watch Placeholder

Highlight known issues or easy traps that can be fallen into when using this function. Include references to known solutions rather than repeating the solutions here, unless considered essential. Even if there are none immediately apparent leave this section in the Help Screen - this message for future reference. Just replace this message with None Known at this Time. Use paragraph format type and do not add extra white space. Ensure that you use the correct styles for inline emphasis and notices.

Please remove this placeholder as soon as you start entering text here.

Dependencies

Dependencies Placeholder

Describe other screens that rely on the presence of this function or that this function relies upon, in order to work correctly for example: a Category depends upon the presence of a Section (up) and it must be in place before a Categorised Article (down) can be created. If there are no Dependencies either up or down for the particular screen just state None but do include the section. Use paragraph format type and do not add extra white space. Ensure that you use the correct styles for inline emphasis and notices. It will probably be sufficient to just list these and provide links to the Help Screens relating to the dependency.
