Web Team: How to upload a new issue

A. Use this page to upload cover images to the correct directory, which is:

http://www.usabilityprofessionals.org/upa_publications/user_experience/images

When you add an image to a file in Contribute, it automatically puts it in a directly immediately below the HTML file called /images. Do not replace an image that is already in this file, it will just make a new version. Instead, delete these images and upload the new ones.

The cover images should be named using the following pattern: year-issue_#x#.jpg

 For example: 2006-2_70x91.jpg  and  2006-2_140x181.jpg

INSERT SMALL VERSION OF COVER IMAGE HERE:

 

INSERT LARGE VERSION OF COVER IMAGE HERE:

 

B. Create the "past issues" page

The easiest way to create a new page is to open the one from the previous issue and then create a new page as a copy, naming the page http://www.usabilityprofessionals.org/upa_publications/user_experience/past_issues/yyyy-#.html (eg 2006-2.html)

Edit the page to show the contents of the current issue.

  • Edit the text
  • Insert the new image by using Image | From Website and browsing the ../images directory
  • Publish the file

 

C. Add the file to the past issues index

Open http://www.usabilityprofessionals.org/upa_publications/user_experience/past_issues/

Add the image and link (finding the image file in ..\images\year-issue_70x90.jpg) and link it to the issues page.

 

D. Update the main publications page

Open http://www.usabilityprofessionals.org/upa_publications/ and edit it. Images are in the directory just below this page.

 

E. Update the UPA home page

Let the current webmaster) know that the new issue is ready to be added to the home page and the store.
