ARTICLES

 

The “Articles” module allows you and your users to post articles on your website which are sorted into categories to make it easier to browse for a specific group of articles. Categories are required to use this module. You can add new articles through the administrator interface and through the user side. Once you create a category and click on a category you will have an additional button that will read “Manage Articles”. Once you click this button you will be taken to a screen to approve, deny and delete articles.
