This is the best thing you can do to make your site interesting. You can send photos to me with captions and I'll post them. If you'd like to do it yourself, here's what to do: Scan your photos and open them in a photo editing program. Resize each photo to no more than 450 pixels wide (for wide photos) or 450 pixels high (for tall photos). Set the resoultion at 72 dpi. Save each photo as a JPG file, giving each one a very unique name. (Names like team.jpg are too simple and might get over-written by someone else.) My suggestion is to include the current year in the name, e.g. 2000myteam3.jpg. The name you choose can be many more than 8 characters, but don't get carried away. To upload your photo files, click on Uploads which will open up more options. Click on Photos and click Browse to access your hard drive and select your file. You upload each file one at a time this way. Once your photos are uploaded you can do many things with them. You can attach them to News items and such. (By the way, Images are for GIF drawings in case you were wondering. You can spice up your site with those too, including animated GIF's.) To use the Albums feature: Click on Albums. Create an album, name it and give it a description. You can create as many albums as you want. To add photos to your albums, click on the album name itself (the pencil icon is for editing the album title and description). On the screen that opens you can add photos you've uploaded to the album, add captions, and delete or edit photos you've added before.
Use the Schedules:Practices area for posting your practice schedules.
Here's the best way to add coaches and players to your roster. First click on People which will open two more selections, Personnel (adult volunteers) and Players. Enter your players and volunteers in these areas. You can fill out the info completely. Only the names, e-mail addresses, and profiles will appear on the roster page. Birthdates will appear on the calendar pages. Street addresses and phone numbers will not appear anywhere. If you want to have individual photos and a team photo for your roster pages, get them to me. After you've entered your people, click on Roster to assign players and volunteers to the team. All names you've entered will appear on lists for you to select from.
The Schedules area is for posting individual games. For upcoming tournaments I've created a Tournaments page. Click on News. Then select Tournaments from the drop-down list near the upper-right corner of the screen and click Go. On that page you can post whatever information you have about upcoming tournaments. Make a separate entry for each tournament. You should also post the first game of each tournament on the Calendar:Events. If you have the exact street address of the field you will be playing on, enter it on the form. The event will appear along with the next upcoming 3 events on your front page. If you entered a street address, a blue compass icon will be generated which will link to an interactive map and driving directions. After the tournament, click on Schedules then Games and enter each game you played. You will then be able to enter the results of each game. Doing so will generate stats on your Record page.
