How To Information · 8th October 2006

One of the most overlooked keys to a successful website is interesting, high-quality information. Tideline's direct-edit features makes it easy for people to easily add new information directly from any browser. It's as easy as 1-2-3:

ADDING INFORMATION

1. Click any "Add" link.
Sprinkled throughout the site, wherever something can be added, are "add your own" links. Click one.

2. Fill out the dialog.
When you click an "add your own" link a dialog with a form appears. Fill it out and click the "Add It" button at the bottom.

3. Wait for an editor to approve it
Editors can allow certain people to post item immediately to the live website...while others may have to have their posting reviewed by an editor first.

EDITING AND DELETING

Editing and deleting items is done much the same way as adding. If a person has permission to edit or delete items, they will see "edit" and "del" links below each item. If the item has a password attached, that same password must be entered to make edits or to delete it. Editors, of course, don't need to know the password...they are empowered to make any changes to anything they want.
