I have been out of the guildportal loop for about 3 years. Now that I reactiveted my guild again, I see that there are some new fetures. I am having a problem figuring out how to use the needs list and implement it into my site. I read the manual at it just said what it was. could someone give me step-by-step instructions on how to put it into my site so that we can use it? Also I need step-by-step instructions on how to add that photogallery. I have photobucket as my host, but I cannot figure out how to add one. Any info is appreciated. I

Thank You

Not sure about the Needs Lists, someone else may be able to explain that.

For the Photo Gallery:

Control Panel, Site Pages, click the page you want to add it to, click Add Content.

For Content Type, choose Categorized Images, make a title and set it's display positions. Click Save.

Find it on the Site Pages list and click Edit Content. At the top of the new window, click Display Options and choose whether you want a Scrolling Gallery (like the Snaps window to the right) or a Static List. Click Save.

In the edit window, click Add Image Category and create your categories. Then when you want to add pictures, click Add Image, select the category you want it in, the Title, and the link to the image.

the needs list is easy to get onto a page but somewhat of a pain for basic and new gamers to use...

to add it to a page add content in the Site Admin area just as you would with any other content, for use there is an add need button in the content that you click on in order to post a need, you will nee to place all of the info in manualy when adding a need as they are not in the list of needs already, though i do believe you can save certain needs as a template for future need requests.

It would be nice to be able to edit the field content descriptions.

IE: Ultimate Goal or Reward
      Location Information 
      Estimated People Needed

So they could be used by an admin as an ingame item/quest help etc., tool.
