Administration Submit Article Screen

Blank Submit Screen
The Administration Submit Article screen should be familiar to anyone who has posted to News, or to the Forums.

The image field at the foot of the screen behaves similar to Coppermine upload. The thumbnail and the link to the original are active and can be checked in the Preview, as can any embedded links. Once visible as an image following a Preview, a Delete Image? checkbox appears to allow for removal and/or replacement of the image. GIF, jpeg and PNG are supported formats.

Preview Article and Submit Article buttons are available at all times on the Administration version of Submit Article.   _PNMORE ...

Overview of Article Template Structure

There nothing technically different between Pro_News Article Templates - the ones used to display the articles - and any other Dragonfly templates. But they are employed a little differently, so the description here will hopefully save template or theme designers a little experimentation time.

Pro_News article templates are stored in a separate dedicated directory within the theme, this is primarily to allow new templates to be added and selected easily in Admin > Pro_News > Config without worry of selecting a non-Article template.   _PNMORE ...
