How do I add content to my website using the database modules?

You can access your online admin panel at https://www.yourdomainname/admin/
(Replace 'yourdomainname' with the name of your registered domain with us)

Log in with your username and password.


To Add Events:

  1. Under the Active Modules menu, click Events [Add].
  2. Enter the information for your event (you don't have to complete all the fields - the only required ones are Heading, Date events starts, and Full Description).
  3. Click to submit - your event will now display on the website until the date of the event.
NOTES:
  1. You only need to enter an End Date if it is different to the Start Date (in other words, the event takes place over more than one day).
  2. When you click on Start Date or End Date, a pop-up calendar will appear for you to make your selection.
  3. The Full Description field works similar to a word processor - you can make text  bold, change font size, add pictures, etc.  It is advisable not to make too many changes to the fonts to keep the appearance of the website standardised.  ** See Related Topics below
  4. The Events page on the 'public' part of the website automatically does not display events that are already past, so you don't have to remove them yourself.
  5. If you want to change info for an event you have already added, go to Events [Update | Delete ] from the main admin page.
  6. If the "Submit to SA Churchnet" box displays and is checked, your event details will automatically be submitted to us for possible inclusion on our SA Churchnet website.

To Add News:

  1. Under the Active Modules menu, click News [Add].
  2. Enter the information for your news item (you don't have to complete all the fields - the only required ones are Heading and Message).
  3. Click to submit - your news will now display on the website, with the newest one at the top of the page.
NOTES:
  1. The Message field works similar to a word processor - you can make text  bold, change font size, add pictures, etc.  It is advisable not to make too many changes to the fonts to keep the appearance of the website standardised.  ** See Related Topics below
  2. If required, you can add a file to the news item: from Link to File select a file already on the server from the drop down menu, or click the Browse button to upload a file from your PC.  Most popular file types are supported, maximum file size 5Mb. You can also add you own custom Link text if required, otherwise the link will display on the site with the words Click here to download this News item.
  3. If you want to make changes to a news item you have already added, go to News [ Update | Delete ] from the main admin page.

To Add Sermons / Teachings:

  1. Under the Active Modules menu, click Teachings [Add].
  2. Enter the information for your teaching (you don't have to complete all the fields - the only required ones are Heading and Message).
  3. Click to submit - your teaching will now display on the website, with the newest one at the top of the page.
NOTES:

  2. If you want to provide a document or audio file for a teaching, these files need to be uploaded separately and the details added to the Linked File and Linked Text fields.  Part of our future system development is to streamline this process.  In the meantime, click here for further info if this function is required.
  3. To change info for a teaching you have already added, go to Teachings [ Update | Delete ] from the main admin page.
