Website Blog Layout

The blog layouts on the site are ordered by date, but one article is forced to always display first. This is done using a kludge so I'm documenting it here:

  • The main article has it's date set to the far future, currently the year 2030.
  • The global blog layouts are set to:
    • Order articles with the most recent first:
      • Article Manager / Options / Shared Options / Article Order / "Most recent first"
    • Use the creation date to order articles:
      • Article Manager / Options / Shared Options / Date for Ordering / "Created"
  • The menu and article order and date parameters are set to "Use Global"
    • edit menu item with "Category Blog" type
    • Blog Layout Options / Category Order / "Use Global" 
    • Blog Layout Options / Date for Ordering / "Use Global" 

Race Applications and Other Misc. Files

To upload race applications and other files to the site:

  • Log into the Joomla administrator (http://nvrun.com/administrator/)
  • Go to Components / eXtplorer (!! be careful in eXtplorer - you can edit the core Joomla files here)
  • For race applications, click on the apps folder (at the top level under the root folder)
  • File other files, click on the appropriate folder, or create a new one
  • Click on the Upload button (blue upwards arrow icon)
  • Click on Browse button(s) to select files
  • Click Save to upload files
  • Links to applications will be in this format: http://nvrun.com/apps/fileName.ext
  • (Ask Dave to upload large numbers of files using w/scp &/or ftp)

Flickr Photos

We're trying out putting photos from Flickr on the website using tags. This will allow anyone that took pictures of an NVRC event to upload them to Flickr, tag them, and have them appear on the web page for that event. See the Arts Fest pages for examples and the following for instructions:...
