Being somebody that isn't very clued up on html and css, could somebody offer any advice or help to understanding pages/database etc?
I have bought pages. I have seen SuperGrid by Opentype but been told that I need a good understanding of databases etc to be able to make it work. I don't.
I have messed around with it but can't seem to get it to work.
What I want to achieve...
Home page/landing page that has articles. The feed I want to come from a forum called "News & Rumours" so I can add articles in the main forum but when people for the first time or regularly visit the website, they can see the articles , which may encourage them to register or contribute.
My understanding is that I need to add a page, create a database (is this the database of the articles?), then add a block to show the content?
Really struggling to get my head around it.
Off work this week and won't be getting another break for 3 months. Really want to try and get this sorted asap.
Thanks for any advice or help that you may offer 🙂
I'm doing the video right now!
Uploading, so should be ready in about ~15 mins.
Brill. Thanks for that 🙌🏻
It's still going, but I'll drop the link here - check back in 10 if the video hasn't uploaded.
It shows the following:
- Creating a page for the database
- Creating a database, and adding it to the page
- Creating a page for your landing page
- Adding drag and drop elements to show the streams.
Brill. Thanks for the help 🙂
Makes much more sense now thanks. Only thing I can't fathom is that I have 2 pages. 1 to actually write the content, lets call it A and the second page which shows the feed , lets call it B, which I want as the landing page. How do I hide A from members as there's no point in them seeing that as they wont be creating news articles . Also will that affect them being able to read B? Finally I can go into Settings/Localisation/Languages/Translation Tools/Quick Translating and enable that so I can change "News Articles" to "Home" but how do I get it that it goes to that when someone loads the website and the menu across the top shows HOME / FORUMS / CALENDAR etc etc?
Don't want to take any more of your time @Matt , so anybody else know how I can achieve this?
Make sure only the people that you want access to submit/edit have the "Add/edit" permissions. Anyone that doesn't will never be able to see the form to submit. They should all be the same page but different parts/permissions of it that come from the database permissions.
