How To Create Posts on the Website

There are three types of content on the website. Pages, reserved for static pages, for example the pages in the menu, posts, of which there will be many, and Events, which concern events (check out the other guide for how those work).

There are four categories of posts:

  1. Nieuws. These will automagically show up prominently on the main front page (left column) and on the Nieuws overview page https://code-rood.org/nl/nieuws/ .
  2. Persberichten. These are the press statements we send out to the press. You can find the archive on the press page ( https://code-rood.org/nl/pers/ )
  3. Nieuwsbrievenarchief. The archive of the news letters we send out. These show up on the newsletter sign up page ( https://code-rood.org/nl/mailinglijst/ )
  4. Blog. Currently this are not yet shown but the idea is that people who want to write blog entries can do so and that those will not overwrite the more important/prominently posts of the category Nieuws.

When you create a new post, make sure to set the following (see below for the picture):

A: Title and actual text. The text works with the new WordPress blocks. Check out a tutorial on how to use these if you want here: https://www.wpbeginner.com/beginners-guide/how-to-use-the-new-wordpress-block-editor/

B: Optionally, set the publish date. The published date determines in what order the posts will show up. You can also publish dates in the past which is especially convenient for press statements and news letters you add to the site later

C: The category as described above. Set this always, otherwise the post won’t show up and we clutter the database with useless posts

D: The feature image. This is very important. All posts, pages and events should have featured image. If you don’t have one simply select a pretty one that is vaguely related from the media library.

E: The language of this post . This will determine whether the post will be shown on the Dutch or English part of the website. Once a post exists you can add a translated version for the other language (also see further in this document).

Adding a translation to a post

Adding translations to posts would be nice. We aim to have all Nieuws posts in both English and in Dutch. See this page to learn how translating stuff works.
