Help For Authors

This section of the Help Guide provides instructions for authors. Our website features a variety of different formats of material, each of which has its own special attributes. Authors choose which "content type" to build with, and then customize it by adding text and other information to create the final content that will be displayed appropriately by the website's underlying software.

Some examples of content types are "page," "event," and "link." Later pages in this Help Guide will describe the different content types and how you as an author can choose which is most appropriate for your material. But first we'll take a look at what's going on behind the scenes of the website system.

The pages in this section will be:

  1. Behind the website (Drupal)
  2. How "content" is stored
  3. Revisions and reversion
  4. Create new content
    1. Create a "page" or a "book page"
      1. Create a "page" item
      2. Create a "book page" item
    2. Create a "news" item
    3. Create an "event" item
    4. Create a "link" item
    5. Create a "forum topic"
    6. Create a blog or a "blog entry"


Hazrat Inayat Khan

Pir-O-Murshid Hazrat Inayat Khan

From the Gayan

He who appeals to the human intellect will knock at the gate of the human brain: he is a speaker. He who appeals to the human emotions will enter into the hearts of men: he is a preacher. But he who penetrates the spirit of his hearers is a prophet, who will abide in their souls forever.
