ADDING IMAGES

When adding images to a page or post, there will be slots for images in the edit screen, at the bottom of the right column.

Please do not upload very large images as they will slow the site down. Please resize your images to approx 750px before you get it ready for upload.

For most pages, images will be 436 pixels by 316 pixels, unless stated on the image box but the site will automatically crop / resize larger images to that size.

To add an image:

  1. click the Set Image link
  2. click Upload Files and follow the instructions.
  3. make sure the image is selected with a tick
  4. click Set Featured Image in the bottom right corner

EDITING TEAMS

To add a team, select the game and Add New; or to edit a team, click the game to which it belongs.

  1. Add a name for the team to the title bar.
  2. There is a large area for the main text. On the team page, this will be automatically truncated with a Read More link.
  3. The Team Contacts area fills the Team Contacts box
  4. Add a link to where the fixtures for this class appear in the Link to Fixtures Page.
  5. Add an image for the team under Team Image. The image should be 664 pixels by 316.
  6. Add an image for the team sponsor to Team Sponsor.
  7. The Order field, under Attributes, determines what order this team will appear in the menus. The best would be to add the age of the team to this box to make sure it appears in the correct place. For adult teams, add a larger number to teams that you want to appear lower in the list.
