I’m liking the new site a lot. I have a few questions, though, and I’m sure others will too, so here’s a topic for it, I guess.
My personal questions are about the “add a location” as a separate feature from the “training grounds” thread on the forum and the hotspot map. Where does that go? What does it do? Does it get added to the map? To the forum thread? Somewhere completely different?
Also, I’m getting errors whenever I try to add photos. This could be just my computer, but I’m also wondering if we’re somehow not allowed to upload photos as regular users. I saved a location I was working on as a draft but I can’t find the draft now. Any ideas? Thanks!September 3, 2013 at 11:22 pm #801
How do I add a youtube video to the videos section instead of uploading the file? My file is too big to upload to this site (>7MB).September 4, 2013 at 1:14 am #805
You can post a link to the youtube video either as a new topic in the forums here or on the NEPK facebook group, and it’ll soon get added to the Videos page.
To answer your earlier questions, revamping the locations/training grounds section is next on the to-do list for the site. If you notice any other oddities, let me know; it’s very useful to hear!February 17, 2014 at 1:18 pm #874
Can users add blog posts on here? It says we can on the welcome page, but I can’t seem to find an area for adding a personal blog post. I think it’s fine if the blog is just for official news, actually, but I’m just pointing out the discrepancy. If regular users can add blog posts, can you tell me how? Because if I’m missing the button, someone else probably is too.March 21, 2014 at 10:45 am #875
When I upload a picture on here for my profile pic, it crops only the top left corner of the pic and you can’t see my face at all. How do I fix this?March 23, 2014 at 6:42 pm #876
@Theresa: You’re right, there’s an odd glitch with the avatar uploader that prevents cropping. I’m looking into a fix for it, but in the meantime if you crop the photo yourself to 150×150 pixels first (using MS Paint or similar program) before uploading, it should look right.
@Angie: It’s a multi-step process to enable individual blogs for regular users. I wonder how many people would regularly update their own blog if they had one on this site? Might be easier to just open up the main blog to dedicated community members like yourself. If that sounds good to you, I’ll update the welcome page to reflect that.November 2, 2014 at 8:05 am #889
How do I add an event? Can regular users, or do we post it in the forum and admins put the details up as a calendar event?November 8, 2014 at 9:51 pm #890
