Filename Naming Conventions

When importing any files with a time stamp in the filename use the format: _YYYYMMDD_  Example: _20210317_ for 17th March 2021.

All launch photos should be named with the venue, launch date and the image number.


Example: Whalan_20210317_1

for Whalan image from 17th March 2021, image number 1.

Tagging Imported Media

As well as the naming conventions described above all images or documents should be tagged with Att. Categories when they are imported. The easiest way to do this is:

  1. Under the Media menu click on Assistant.
  2. Click on the Add New button at the top of the screen.
  3. Click on the Open Bulk Edit Area button on the right of the screen.
  4. Select the appropriate Att. Categories from the list on the left side of the screen.
  5. Click the Select Files button or drag and drop to upload the photos.

Tagging Examples:

  • Whalan gallery photos should be tagged with Whalan and Gallery.
  • Mullaley gallery photos should be tagged with Mullaley and Gallery.
  • All photos for sliders should be tagged with the slider name. Note that all slider photos need to be cropped to the appropriate aspect ratio. See Att. Category description for details.
  • Documents should be tagged with the Documents category.

Adding New News/Blog Posts

Please follow this procedure when creating new News posts:

  1. Create or choose an existing image for this post. Images should have a 7/5 aspect ratio
  2. Import the image into the media library and assign it a “News” category
  3. Click on New > Post
  4. Fill in the title
  5. Choose Featured Image > set featured image
  6. Select the image from the media library – use “News” category as filter

  9. Click Publish

Adding New Events

  1. To add a new event click on the Events menu in the WordPress side bar.
  2. Click on the Add New button at the top.
  3. Add an event title. Please see other launches for naming convention.
  4. Enter event description in the text box. Include whether its high or lower power and directions for how to get there. Can be copied and pasted from previous events.
  5. Add the start and end date and time.
  6. Select the venue from the drop down menu.

  10. Click on the Publish button on the top right.
  11. Check that the event appears as expected in the Events Calendar.

The next event and countdown sections on the Home and Launch page will update automatically.

Launch Status

Changing the Launch Status for a particular launch event should be done as follows:

  • Edit the home page and manually edit the text block. Options are:
    • Status: GO for launch
    • Status: Launch CANCELLED – [Insert Reason]
  • You will need to click on the Toolbar Toggle button to see the font colour dropdown.
  • Edit the Launch Info page repeating the same process.
  • If a launch is cancelled also update the event with CANCELLED in the title and an explanation of why it was cancelled in the description.

Currently a manual process, but longer term plan to build widget that will update on both the Launch and Home page simultaneously.

CSS Explanation

The following custom CSS settings can be found in: Enfold > General Styling > Quick CSS

Setting the letter spacing to 0 to prevent large gaps between letters in the headings. Also prevent the headings from automatically capitalizing.

h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6{ letter-spacing: 0.0em !important; text-transform: none !important;}

Setting for removing white image overlays when hovering over images with a mouse.

span.image-overlay {display: none !important;}

Setting to remove borders around gallery thumbnails and reduce the spacing to 2 pixels. Makes the thumbnails easier to view on a mobile device.

#top div .avia-gallery img { border-style: none; padding: 0; }
#top #wrap_all .avia-gallery .avia-gallery-thumb a { margin: 2px; }


As a general rule we have tried to minimise the use of Plugins as they can cause the site to crash.

When WordPress or the theme is updated it can take a while for the plugin to get updated causing issues.
