A few tips (the most important things I could think of) for using the fckeditor, which is the WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editor you’ll find in the content field.

  1. By default you will be in a WYSIWYG editor.  To disable it and enter plain text there is a link directly beneath the field
  2. There is a graphic within the editor that is square.  It looks like mountains with a yellow background.  Click on this icon and then click on the button that says "browse server" to upload images and insert them into the content.
  3. There is a link below the body field named "input formats".  Choose different input formats to control how the text will be processed.
  4. When pasting from a word doc, always use the special button that looks like a clipboard with the Word logo on top of it.
  5. There is a button that says "teaser".  This button will insert a line.  Everyting above this line is the teaser text.  The teaser text is what gets put on the homepage.
  6. If you want to print events that are associated with the program enter the following code into the body field: <?php print views_embed_view(‘section_events’, ‘default’, ‘artbeat’); ?>
    Replace artbeat with the program name.  Make sure you set the input format to php
  7. Similarly you can print a schedule of presentations with this code: <?php print views_embed_view(‘presentations_by_event’, ‘default’, ‘4’); ?>
    The number 4 must be replaced with a node id.
