You can submit beach reports, updates for the site and photos directly.
This is a great improvement on the original site, when beach reports
were sent to the Captain by email, and updates depended on the
hardworking Captain having time to update the site. Which, let's be
honest, didn't happen often.
Click on the "edit" link, and an editing panel opens - like this:
Wiki sites like this one use a special syntax - but you don't need to learn it to edit Cap'n Barefoot's Naturist Guide. You can just type in text.•If you want to insert a heading, type ++[space]•If you want to make a block of text Bold, simply select it and click "B" in the editing panel. You can make text italic or underline it in a similar way.Don't use the "Back" button in your browser while editing - you will lose all your changes.
You can make links to other pages using the Wizard in the editing panel.
You can also upload images to the site using the Wizard in the editing panel. It's easy, provided you remember two important rules:1. Do not include any spaces in the image name. For example: "nudist beach.jpg" will not work, but "nudist_beach.jpg" will. 2. Because of Wikidot terms and conditions, and yes, I know this is a naturist site, please do not include images of explicit or frontal nudity. That doesn't mean we can't use any pictures of nude people. There are plenty on the site which capture the essence of naturism without breaking the rules. A few examples appear on this page. However the Captain will not publish photographs of identifiable naked people which appear to have been taken furtively. Also, the Captain sometimes receives photographs which have been retouched, either to conceal the identity of the person or persons depicted, for example by a bar across the face, or to cover parts of the body of the person depicted. The Captain does not consider either of those to be genuine naturist photographs and will not use them.
Click on "Files", then click "Upload a file from your computer", then "Select files". You can then browse files on your computer and select the one you wish to upload.Once that is done, click Edit, and you should see an editing panel like this:
Scroll to the point where you want to insert the photo. Then click the Insert Image Wizard button (circled). Select "attached file", and then select your picture from the list. You can also resize it, and set its alignment (left, centre, right, floating left and floating right). If you choose "floating left" or "floating right", text will appear to the left or the right of the image.Then click "Save", and sit back and admire your photo on Cap'n Barefoot's Naturist Guide!
How to upload and publish photographs
As with textual reports, log in, and go to the page where you want to add the photo by selecting an island from the index. Then scroll down to the bottom of the page, where you will find a series of links like this:
