The permissions setting issue I had previously has been solved by uploading the Quick version (3.2.10) FTP install. So far so good.

I have one question…what would be the best way to configure a story archive?

The theory would be, User would have a list of topic choices, then after a submission, the story is archived both by the topic and perhaps the date of submission.

I have searched configuration options and looked for relevant tutorials but haven't found anything that seems like the answer.

If anyone has a link to a guide or tutorial for this it would be great. Having this feature is the primary reason I would want to feature the site around.

Something that behaves like the "news" feature but uses the word "story" instead. Or is there a way to rename the "news" feature to what I want?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Hi Highspeedlane! Couple of options if you don't plan on having content called "News":

  1. Change the entry for News in the language file.
  2. Change it in your template.

The former can be done via:
Admin -> Style -> Language -> Global

The latter, I'd have to look at the templates, but I'm running out the door so drop a note if you'd still like that information.

Thanks. That actually works fine for the most part. I wish I had the knowledge (severe time constraints very often) to build a content module, but in the interim that's a great solution.
