Adding your community's news to The Batavian
Many of you noticed a week or so ago, we added a box on the left side of the site called "Our Towns" and we list links to the towns of Genesee County so you can view news for just those towns.
The links are proving very popular.
If you live in one of those towns and want to add any kind of news about your town to the site, here's how you do it.
- You must be a registered users and logged into your account
- When logged in, on the left side you will see a link called "Create Content." Click it.
- Then click "Blog Entry."
- Fill in the title field -- try to use a sentence to describe what you're going to post about.
- In the tags field type the name of your town, such as "Bergen" or "Oakfield."
- Write your post.
Note: Step #5 is the key to getting your post to show up on the proper town page.
If we think your post is interesting beyond just your town, we'll add it to The Batavian's home page (front page).
If your post is about some church dinner, government meeting, fund-raising drive, birth or wedding, you can also have it show up on the "Announcements" page by tagging it (using that Tag field) as "announcements." If the post is also about local sports, tag your post "sports."
What is news? Anything you find interesting and want to share with other people.
