Imc Uk Maintenance
This twiki builds a "manual" for maintenance of the imc uk website and e-mail lists.
If you are new-ish doing some admin, read the Introduction to Mir
first and then the Moderation pages
, which include a tutorial
and a HowTo
on creating features and "cleaning" the newswire
(or read the For Dummies here
"Moderation" means "cleaning the newswire", promoting or demoting articles between various article-types, creating new features. These tasks can be done through the admin page.
Beyond moderation. Creating and editing Static Pages, Include files...
Moderators need logins and passwords to access the admin page. We keep a list of logins plus email adresses of their holders. 5 (?) "super-users" have the necessary access to create logins.

Stylesheets and templates
The colour and layout of pages is done by changing stylesheets, sometimes in conjuction with other templates. To change these stylesheets, download them using cvs, make your changes, then upload the new version.
The United Kollektives are using at least 20 email lists. Have a look here to see a list
Some points for list admins:
/ documentation on Web-Maintenance with the old codebase Active.
Probably a lot of the stuff from UkMirTimeline
could find a new home here.
