You can create pages in your system without any HTML/XML file editing whatsoever. Examples of pages created this way are the ccMixter home page and As Seen on the Web. Learn more about how ccHost manages content.
The actual content for the pages will entered as 'topics' (similar to reviews and forum posts).
First create new content topics:
When you want to add more topics repeat the steps above but select "my_page_content" from the Content type drop down instead of entering it manually.
You can optionally add images when submitting content.
Images are uploaded to <local_files>/images To refer to those images use the [img] block in your topics. Example:
You can also use the [left] or [right] blocks to float images:
Next create a new content page:
One powerful feature of adding content this way is the ability to easily embed queries into your content topics. This is how the Featured Playlists feature at ccMixter is implemented:
[left][query=t=avatar&u=mcjackinthebox][/query][/left] [query=t=playlist_2_info&ids=2747][/query] [query=t=yahoo_black&playlist=2747][/query]
Your topic type is now ready to be merged with a page. Here is how you set up that page:
To map your new page to a tab:
HINT: entering a full URL in a tab causes a re-direct (extra round trip to your server). To prevent this, enter /docs/<page_name> instead.
