Detailed Instructions

1) Login

You must be logged in to be able to add content. In addition, your account must have been given permission to add content by the site administrator. If you follow these directions, and you do not see the add new link at step 4, then you probably don't have permission to add content and need to contact the site administrator.

If you are not yet logged in, use the  login link to get to the login form. Fill out your site username and password in the login form then click login. If you do not have a Jazz Inside username and password, then you need to create one.

2) Home Folder

Most accounts can only add content to their personal home folder. You can easily navigate to your account home folder by using the Home link located with all of your other account management links as shown in the image to the right.

 

3) Navigate to desired content location

You can add folders to your home account in order to help organize your content. For example you may want to add a folder called News to hold all of your News Items. If you want to add content to a particular folder, you need to navigate to that folder first.

4) Add New - Artist

You use the Add New link as shown in the image to the right, to add new content. You will only see this link when you are viewing a folder. For example, if you are currently viewing a Page or Artist or News Item or Event, you will not see the Add New link. Use the site Breadcrumbs to click on the link for the folder to which you want to add the content. Every time you add content, you will need to click on the Breadcrumbs for the folder before you can add another content.

 

5) Fill out the form

Every content type has a simple form which needs to be filled out. Each for field has a description and some help text which should explain the required information. For example, the Artist form let's you enter the artist's first and last name, description, a photograph and more. 

6) Save the form

Simply press the save button at the bottom of the form to save and view the new content.

7) Publish the new content

All new content added to the Jazz Inside site starts out as Private. This means it can only be seen by you when you are logged in or a site administrator. Site visitors can not see your private content. If you would like to share your content with the general public, then you need to get the content Published. This is done by using the State:Private link as shown in the image to the right. Click the 'Submit to Publish' link and a notification will be sent to the site content reviewers to approve or reject your new content for publication. 

 

8) Wait for publication approval

Once your content is reviewed by Jazz Inside, if approved, it will become viewable by the general public visiting the web site. For example, your new Artist entry will show up in the sites Artists listing and searches. Events will show up in the sites calendar of events.
