Eyetennis: Help using site
eyetennis is an easy to use tennis news site. You can use eyetennis just for reading news - or you can become an active contributor to the site.Reading the news
Reading news on this website is easy. When you come to our website at our index page, you will be confronted with three columns: the centre column which contains the main content on the site, the left column which contains the latest tennis news and the right column which is known as my eyetennis. This is where active users from the website have created player scout reports, active discussions are available for you to chat with fellow tennis fans and latest user articles. These are tennis stories written by fellow eyetennis users. The centre column of the website is where the tennis news story will always be displayed.
Alternatively, you can read the news by using our own news filter. This page is the equivalent of an archive; you can have the tennis news the way you want it.Getting the news
If you love RSS and use blog readers; why not consider using our RSS feeds? We have several seperate feeds, one for the latest news. These XML feeds can be placed directly into your reader and the articles are refreshed at least every hour.Creating news
We are always looking for tennis editors who are willing to help write regular tennis stories for our website. However, if you are an occasional writer and prefer only to write a tennis story only very occasionally, here is the step by step guide to get going. On the right hand side, when you are logged in only press create. Here you will enter your title which should be under 28 characters. Press submit article.
Step 2 involves you writing the article content as seen in the picture to the right, you will be confronted with two boxes. The first box is the main paragraph (one paragraph only) where you will write the header to the article. This paragraph is displayed on the index page and is displayed in bold font. The second box will contain the main article content. This content is where you can enter any text relating to the tennis story.
This article content will be saved and will go through the moderation process. Your article may or may not be slightly modified (with your permission). The final step will be chosing where you wish to place the article in relation to our database, as seen to the right.Discussing the news
If you already have an account at eyetennis.com, you are able to discuss the latest tennis stories with other fans. Or you can even create your own discussions which will be approved by our Editorial team if deemed relevant as they will appear on our front page. The messages below the box are ordered by time, from most recent to the oldest message.
