Adding or Editing a "SHOW" Page

Version 4 2/4/2023
3/19/23 Whack-a-mole zone

The black control bar has disappeared totally, so you have to do things through the "Administer" link on the User Panel. To get back to the Web Page click "Home".

At present I can see no way to "flush all caches". Stay tuned.

Drupal seems to be back the way it used to be, so the Black control bar is visible and active.

The new procedure (link below) will always work, so I've left it in.

2/3/23

There has been a change to our web system Drupal, so that some of the instructions are out of date.

In previous versions after you logged in you could click on the Black control bar at the top.

You now have to go into "Administration" mode to do some things, and then return to "Web" Mode.

See https://docs.kpfz.org/kpfz-webeditor-admin.php for the new procedure.

1. Go to the Volunteers Page


and Log In :


IF the "show" page already EXISTS continue with Section 2

Update 1/27/2023. If you click on the name of a show anywhere in the schedule system (schedule, shows, or playing now) AND if you are logged in, then there will be an "Edit" Link at the bottom of the page. Click it, and it will put you into the Editor (in a new tab). Skip to Section 5 .


If it does NOT exist, skip to Section 9 and then come back to section 2

2.
At the top left, click on the "Content" link

3. Set the FILTER to "Show6"

4. Select the "Show" page you want to edit.

** If it doesn't exist, you will need to add it ... see the instructions HERE **

Click on "Edit"

Edit a SHOW6 Page

5. Edit the page.

** Note : Do *NOT* change anything related to the schedule. I have put a "horizontal rule" in the page for 9BC and Olga's shows... only change things BELOW the line.

You will usually use the "Rich text Editor", but you can peek at the pure HTML code with the "plain text editor".

** Do NOT change the text format from "Full HTML"(or "PHP Code") unless you know what you are doing.



6. Preview or Save



7. When you have finished editing, Mouse over the KPFZ logo and click Flush All Caches



8. Logout



Add a new SHOW6 Page

9. Find the Show in the Schedule (or the Shows page)

10. and click on it to get the "Info" Page :


11. Now look at the Address Bar of your browser to get the official "database" name of the show: in this case "SeniorMoments"


You will need to copy this TWICE, so maybe paste it into a temporary text file (eg Notepad on Windows).

12. ADD a "Show6" page from the content menu -- in one step using the dropdown menus

Content > Add Content > Show 6

(Or you can click each level in turn)

13. Copy the Show Name (not the database name) into the title : "Senior Moments"
** Ignore the "Program Error" **

14. Now copy the show's Database name into the "ShowName6" field

15 We also need to add it into the "URL Path Settings" field



16 The field must START with "Schedule/Shows/" ... and end with the database name "SeniorMoments"


17. We can add the body of the page. (Since this is a brand new page, you don't have to worry about the other show information described above)

18 Save the Page :


** Do NOT ** use the "Edit" Tab to change the data -- use the procedure at the top of this page.

21 Now go back to the Schedule (or Shows) page and re-select the program:


22 And check that it works correctly in the "Info" tab:



If you do *NOT* see the text which you added then you most likely mis-typed the database name "SeniorMoments".

Go back to Step 2 of these instructions and check the database name fields.
