How To - Add A Slideshow to your site or TopicLast Updated on 2013-07-23 16:14:46A slideshow differs from a Photo Gallery in that is can only use images with a url, it can be associated only at the site or topic level, it can have an internal caption and it can have a link attached to the image directly through the creation process. As the slides are web based, the image size comes from the site where they originated and the slideshow software attempts to fit any image into the slideshow, regardless of actual size or orientation. For this reason landscape images work better that an image with a portrait orientation. To fill the space for a slideshow image area, the ideal image should be about 735x330 pixels.
The steps to create a Slideshow left
1. Click on the "Options" icon at the upper of the page and select "Manage Site"
2. Click on "Graphics and Tools" and then "Slide Shows
3. Click on the "Create New Slide Show"... More »
How To - Create Forums Last Updated on 2013-07-23 16:13:56The process of creating a Forum on the Trunity platform does not use the standard content creation process used for articles and most other content types on the platform.
Instead, the creation of Forum Groups (organizational containers for related Forums) and the associated forums are created on a related page to your standard page.
The process is as follows:
1. Identify the url at the top of your browser, it should look like www.trunity.net/your sitename/
2. add the word "forums/" after the final "/" in your original site url (It should look www.trunity.net/your sitename/forums) and press "Enter"
3. Click the "Create Forum Group" to generate a container for a group of related forums. You will generate the screen below. Please enter a name for your new Forum Group and... More »
