Below are some notes to aide you in your use of the site.  Some screen shots are included at the end to clarify certain aspects.




2.         The site has three levels of users, unregistered visitors, registered users and editors.  Unregistered users can view the information within; they can contact us via email.  Registered users can in addition create documents, upload images for their documents, post comments.  Editors have similar access to the site but can approve and release documents that have been created by registered users.  A search mechanism exists to allow all to find the information that interests them.

3.         The following functions are available.

Page creation. 


4.         If possible date your article and should you so chose name, email address and proximate geographical locations if appropriate.  There are two options for page creation.


a.            Write your submission and attach image files and send via email to 

For text only

Ideal for those not technically minded.  We will then put your article on the site.


b.            Use create new, enter a title, note once create is pressed you can not edit this.  Use on screen editor.  Probably a good idea to play with the sandbox that can be found in the wiki section to the top. Let the arrow hover over the button.  When the edit screen appears chose a category then hide the categories. Select a template, check the spelling box.  You can enlarge the text screen top right of the editing area.  Write your article, or paste it in from your word processor or what ever.  Press preview and have a look.  If you are happy with just text press save.  Note if you are a registered user you then will not be able to edit it until it has been approved.  So probably best to write it off line and go for the paste option.



 Adding images


5.         Again as above for the non-technocrats email the images to and state clearly what they relate too including the precise name and category of your article.   We will then add them to the relevant page.


6.         For the computer experts please size your photographs to 310 wide this will make them easier for people to see on small screens



7.         Press add comment at the bottom of an article.  Be aware that these are moderated, and will only appear for all to see when approved by the moderator.  Also if you are offering a service you should be prepared to hear what customers say.  Additionally all should be aware that the system is able to attribute comments to users. 



Information Currency


8          Where information is deemed to be timely and relevant it will be displayed.  Dated information may well be deleted you should be aware that unattributed images will also be automatically deleted.

Search Syntax

+ : A leading plus sign indicates that this word must be present in every object returned.

- : A leading minus sign indicates that this word must not be present in any row returned.

By default (when neither plus nor minus is specified) the word is optional, but the object that contain it will be rated higher.

< > : These two operators are used to change a word's contribution to the relevance value that is assigned to a row.

( ) : Parentheses are used to group words into subexpressions.

~ : A leading tilde acts as a negation operator, causing the word's contribution to the object relevance to be negative. It's useful for marking noise words. An object that contains such a word will be rated lower than others, but will not be excluded altogether, as it would be with the - operator.

* : An asterisk is the truncation operator. Unlike the other operators, it should be appended to the word, not prepended.

" : The phrase, that is enclosed in double quotes ", matches only objects that contain this phrase literally, as it was typed.
