Images can be added to an article summary and contributors can opt to include additional text, images or files to download

Additional resources are added by choosing from the drop down menu at the bottom of the input form when articles are submitted. The process can be repeated as often as is required.

Except in the case of the Summary, the positioning of images relates to the text block to follow where this exists - i.e. choosing 'Image on right' will place the image on the right of any following text unless 'Image on right (on its own row)' is chosen from the drop down menu.

Contributors can also add extra text, images or files, after submission, by editing their article. This will regain access to the input form. Note that any edits will require the article to be recycled through the moderation process before it is made visible to others

Note that, apart from 'Lead Articles', only the Title, Summary and Summary image are shown on the main section pages within the website, the full article being accessed by clicking on the article Title.

Text

Text can simply be typed in directly or pasted in from another application. If text is copied from MS Word it will automatically be sanitised and illegal characters corrected as far as possible.

A WYSIWYG text editor is provided to allow simple text formatting.

By clicking on the Raw HTML button, more experienced users can employ a limited range of html tags to enhance the article presentation e.g. by use of sub-headings, embolden, italic. [Link:32,For more information on adding html to your text, click here.]

Images

Images should be in web-friendly formats such as JPG, PNG or GIF. For a more complete treatise on using images on the Internet see - http://www.blunham.demon.co.uk/WebImages/

Images can be submitted at any size: they will automatically be 'thumb nailed' to appear in the article but can be clicked on to reveal them at original size. This may be particularly useful when submitting multiple images to create a gallery article for example.

Files

The new NAAIDT Online will accept most file types but portable ones are best to ensure they can be viewed by the largest audience, regardless of the computer platform or particular software they have installed : eg pdf, csv, rtf, html.
