How iptel.org is built up

Keywords: Site | Site
By reading the info below, you should be able to quickly find the content you are looking for, as well as add new content.

Structure

The iptel.org site is built around the following structural elements:

  1. The main navigation bar with shortcuts to the open-source projects, news, downloads, the SIP resources, and the SIP service
  2. The top-right shortcuts for searching, quickly navigating through the sitemap, and see recent activity
  3. The right-hand menu which has one fixed part (your account/personal links) and a dynamic part that changes according to which section you are in.  This means that when you are in the SERi project section, the links in the right-hand menu will all be related to SER
  4. Pages of content (called nodes). Each page has a page type (node type) that controls what type of information has to be entered, as well as one or more keywords

Concepts

node  Any page, unstructured or structured content on the site, even images 
node type/
content type
 Each page/node has a type. The type determines how the page is viewed, where it is viewed and which fields are mandatory. Navigate to Create content (also in the right-hand menu to see a list of content types and a description)
vocabulary/
category

 On each page you edit, you will find boxes with long lists of terms/words. When you create a page, you want to tagi your page in an appropriate category (vocabulary) and with the relevant terms within that category. Don't worry too much about getting it right, but see below for a guideline!

taxonomy term Within a category/vocabulary there will be many taxonomy terms listed. They are there to make it easy to search, view, and organize the content. For example is the site map created from the vocabulary and terms.  Proper selection of terms will make sure your page shows up where it should
view We have defined a set of views. These views basically summarizes all the pages/nodes found on the site with the criteria set for a view. See below for an overview of the current views and where you can find them (links are also found in appropriate places throughout the site)
input format The input format determines how you should type up your content to get things the way you want. Regular users can choose between Filtered HTML, Full HTML or Wiki format. In addition, there is a graphical-based editor (the "enable rich-text" link below the editing area). When you choose rich-text, set the input format to full HTML.

Vocabularies

You will normally add several terms, maybe in several categories/vocabularies, when you create new content in form of a page.

 Documentation  If you create a page that is part of the official documentation or you create a tutorial, add the page to the Documentation category by choosing the appropriate Documentation term. 
 Glossary The Glossary is a special vocabulary where you just add the terms that are covered in the page you make. The glossary is available from the top right-hand menu and defines terms.
 Image galleries image When uploading an image, you should add a term according to the type of the image.
 News If you add a News term to your page, the page will show up on the News page
 Product If you add information about a product, you automatically categorizes the product by choosing the right terms in the Product vocabulary.
 SER The SER vocubulary has a long range of sub-categories. Again, add the terms to your page that are relevant to the topic of the page. This will enable people to find it easily.
