Good evening Admins,
I am trying to build my site out, but running into issues finding certain things.
Primarily, how do I create my Guild Description? I see no "Content Tab" or "Guild Description" tab in the Admin section. This is a definite hindrance.
Secondly, I'd like a way to have a Widget that is purely dedicated to "Message of the Day" since if using the current "Guild News" widget, it would render the current MotD moved off/down from any new news postings.
I'm not 100% sure what you mean .. there is a "Guild Description" widget which you can place, for example, above your "News" widget, and add your guild description there .. for example the "About Us" section on this page: http://hellscream-eu.guildlaunch.com/
Alternatively you could make a seperate page for your description, like on this site, in the "About Us" menu: http://www.darkwolves.eu
(Both the above sites are mine .. the latter being our main guild site, the former being one I use to test stuff out).
As for your MoTD .. there are multiple ways to do this I guess. The "News" widget I tend to use to pull information from our forums (to be precise, our "News" forum). You could add an additional news widget to pull announcements (remember to set as an announcement when you post them) from a seperate forum such as "Message of the Day". You could alternatively add the "News V2" widget that doesn't actually pull anything from the forums, but you post directly into it, and it allows people to comment right there and then similar to Facebook. See http://hellscream-eu.guildlaunch.com/ for some examples on the home page ...
After the "About us" widget, there is the first standard News widget that I have pulling announcements from our "News" forum. After that is a trial of the News V2 widget showing the commenting system, and after that is a second News widget pulling announcements from our "off-topic" forum section.
Other than those options .. if you want to go completely basic and don't need commenting, you could just place a basic HTML widget and add the text you want in there .. I'm sure there are other options as well, if none of those fit the bill.
I hope that helped ...
