I have completed several stories today and they are not appearing on the site.  Is there something I am doing wrong?

As you're not an admin, they're sent to an approval queue.

Always wondered how that worked.

Lots of international reading coming through at the moment.

Sent some more news items and they are still not there.  How long @s3_gunzel does it take to see them?

You have to wait until the story is approved by @s3_gunzel

I'd love to say I have admin access to the module, but I don't. Hence the rank.

Generally, @bevans or @michaelgreenhill will approve or reject articles. Best off getting in touch with one of them.

You'll be waiting an awfully long time.

They go into an approval queue, where they are proof-read. There are no guarantees that submitted news articles will be accepted, and no promises are made about queue approval times. We have lives and jobs outside of Railpage.

Thanks. I know you guys work very very hard.  I have spoken to Mr Gheringhap and he has a lot of praise for you Railpage guys. I am going to put in a news item or two now.

Reading today there has been a change to the news publishing format. I have added a new story today but have changed the way i usually do this. I historically placed the header in the top and what remained of the article in the bottom or body.

Now I have placed the header at the top and the entire article in the body as per the instructions when submitting.  I hope this is correct.

I was told a while back that this was not correct as the header would be duplicated.

Changes to news article structureOn 10th February 2015 we introduced a change to the news article structure. We now require the article lead (the first few paragrahps of the story) to be placed in this field, and the full article including the lead paragraph(s) in the article body.

The process is really quite smooth.  What would make it easier is some javascript in a button on the browser to highlight the webiste content and press the button and have that assist in submitting.  This is how it is done on wordpress.  You can do the submission in 1/2 the time using the button.
