testing layouts for divs
colours and span
I could do comments by highlighting the words - as below - but the border is nicer
Words coloured - For comments about editing - use green perhaps
use for comments
new lines within the span
A lot more to this than meets the eye.
Things I want to keep
- Authors can create and alter articles but they cannot 'publish' them - which means that they do not display until someone with publish permissions has ticked the right box for them to be published.
- Publishers can see the Publish tick-box when they edit or create an article - so they can publish their own articles.
- Publishers can edit documents that they did not create.
To get it published depends on the way the site is managed. Publishing is normally done by the site adminstrator or someone with publish permissions. You are likely to need to send an email asking for it to be published.
