Explanation of content entry fields

Title: Just that. It will often be used as a menu item so it is advisable to keep it short and snappy.

Body: Where the main content goes. Text, images or video clips. There are various formatting buttons in the toolbar on the top of the body editing box. Above this is a link called (Edit summary). This alows you to write a summary that is distinct from the main body of the post. This will be shown in content previews or “teasers” in place of the first part of the post. Summary listings show content as teasers with a “Read more” link below. Tables are useful for keeping things in the right place in the content area. Tables can be created by clicking the table icon on the editiing toolbar. Modifying table settings can be done by right clicking in the table. To change cell properties the contents of the cell need to be selected. 

Tags: You can enter tags or keywords which will be used to help find content relating to a certain theme, idea or subject. eg. plants  could be a tag for all posts relating to things that grow in the ground. 

File: You can upload a file as an attachment to the post much like an attachment in an email. 

Node Hierarchy: This is where you link posts (nodes) to each other to create a navigation structure. By default a post will appear in the navigation menu under whatever parent it is assigned to. A node can have multiple parent nodes. Each node can have parents or children. A parent node would logically be the node from which the current node arises eg. current node is about leaves, a parent node would be about trees. A child node would be something linked to the current node as a logical follow on from that node. There can be many parents or children.
