Documentation – bulletin pages

The Alumni bulletins are kept on two web pages: the current issue is on one page, and all earlier (past) issues are on another. The following shows how to edit these pages. These pages are edited using the Text(HTML) view. There is code below that you can copy into the Text view of the appropriate pages. But copy this code from this page in Visual view.

Handling a new issue

A new issue must be added to the Current issue page, replacing the previous issue. As well, the previous issue must be added to the Past issues page. It is recommended that the past issues page be updated first, in both languages. The following instructions update the bulletin pages in the recommended sequence.

Images

Two images must be prepared in each language, as follows:

  1. a large image for the Current issue page. It is 768 pixels wide, and is called bulletin_###_current_x.jpg where ### is the three digit issue number and x is the language (“e” or “f”). e.g. bulletin_056_current_e.jpg
  2. a small image for the Past issues page. It is 232 pixels wide, and is called bulletin_###_x.jpg where ### is the three digit issue number and x is the language (“e” or “f”). e.g. bulletin_056_e.jpg

The smaller image won’t be required until a further issue of the bulletin is ready. But it is convenient to create it at the same time that you create the larger image.

These images must be uploaded by FTP to /public_html/wp-content/uploads/bulletins.
