The Admin Interface

Once logged in, you will see the Community Admin interface.  Wimage is built on top of the WordPress publishing platform.

admin-home

On this screen, you can see recently published Wimages and other details.

The majority of the administrative options are available in the left menu:

  • Posts – Shows all Wimages (existing, in moderation and trashed)
  • Comments – Shows comments on Wimages
  • Communities – Lets you configure your Community, as well as edit Wimage Categories
  • Profile – Edit the profile you’re logged in as

Posts

By selecting Posts in the left menu, you can view and manage all of the Wimages submitted to your Community:

admin-posts

By default, you will see all Wimages submitted to your Community.  You can use the navigation links up top to filter to PublishedDraft and Trash:

  • Published posts are Wimages you have approved to appear on your Community site.
  • Draft posts are Wimages that you need to approve or delete.  They will not show up on the Community site until they have been approved.
  • Trash posts are Wimages you have removed from the site.  You can un-Trash a post at a later time if you wish.

As a Community Admin, you also have the ability to edit Wimages.  You can do any of the following:

  • Edit the title of a Wimage
  • Edit the description (story) of a Wimage
  • Edit the uploaded Wimage
  • Move the Wimage from one Category to another

Categories

A Category is a way of organizing your Wimages.  All Wimages submitted to your Community site are assigned a Category.

On your Community site, you can call Categories whatever you want, such as a Prompt, Event, or Inspiration.  You can make this nomenclature change in the Community section of the Admin interface.

You can edit your Categories from either the Posts or Communities menus:

admin-categories

Here, you see a list of all of your Categories.  You can add, edit and remove Categories from here.

When creating a new Category, you are prompted for the following information:

  • Name is the name of the Category, and will be shown in the Wimage App
  • Slug is a URL-friendly version of the Name.  For example, if the Name is “My Category” the Slug could be “my-category”.  If you leave this blank, a Slug is generated for you based on the Name.
  • Parent is the parent Category, and should be set to your base Category
  • Description will be shown in the Wimage App when users are starting to create a new Wimage, as well as on your Community website.  If you want to prompt your Community members with a specific thought, idea or question, the Description is a great place to do that.

Community Settings

By selecting Communities in the menu bar, you can edit your Community settings:

admin-communities

Simply click on your Community’s name to edit it:

admin-community

The Community Edit screen allows you to change how your Community’s Home page appears.

The following options can be edited:

  • Description (main edit box) is what is displayed on your Community’s Home page.  You can use the editor to add images, change text and edit colors and styles.
  • Featured Image (on the right) is your Community’s square icon, which is used on your Home page and in the Wimage App.
  • Text Description is used in the Wimage App when users of the app are given a list of Communities they can join.  It can be similar to the Description, but cannot contain formatting or images.
  • Show Community Title option determines whether your Community name is displayed on the Home page.  If not selected, your Description can show whatever custom text you want instead.
  • Category Name option is what text is used when talking about a single Category.  Examples are “Prompt”, “Event”, “Category” or “Inspiration”.
  • Category Name (plural) option is what text is used when talking about more than one Category.  Examples are “Prompts”, “Events”, “Categories”, or “Inspirations”.
  • Left Bar Color is the background color on your Community site’s left bar.
  • Left Bar Font Color is the font color on your Community site’s left bar.
  • Password is optional.  If set, users of the Wimage App will need to enter that password to join your Community.
