Create filters (types)

Fitlers, also called types, are a means of categorizing and filtering content. The platform administrator can define types for "News", "Events", "Links" and "Library". These are then used in the filter box in the options area (left column), where a user can filter news, events, links and references.

In order to create filters (types), proceed as follows:

|1| Choose "" from the main menu by clicking on it.

|2| A table with all services is displayed. Click on the "types"-button next to the desired service.

A list of types is displayed. If your platform has just been created, the list is empty.

|4| Insert a type name in the "Default value" input field.


type_add - 182380.1

|5| Click on the "add...type"-button.

info3 - 125057.2
Length of input - The user selects types from a drop-down menu in the options area (left column). Due to limited

width of the left column, a type name must not be longer than 20 characters.

|6| The new type is instantly displayed in the list and can be used on the platform.
