Editing A Chapter Website

Quick note before diving in:
Two names you’ll see going forward are WordPress and Gutenberg

All you need to know is that the chapter websites are built using WordPress, a content management system, which allows those with no coding experience to editing websites, and post new content (like Facebook). 

And, Gutenberg is the new text editor/page-builder that WordPress uses.

Logging In

There are 3 ways to access the login area of your chapter website:  

1. Through the direct link http://chapternumber.mophaz.org/wp-admin. (e.g. http://2560.mophaz.org/wp-admin)
   
    Chapter 442:
http://442.mophaz.org/wp-admin
    Chapter 472: http://472.mophaz.org/wp-admin
    Chapter 572: http://572.mophaz.org/wp-admin
    Chapter 691: http://691.mophaz.org/wp-admin
    Chapter 790: http://790.mophaz.org/wp-admin
    Chapter 793: http://793.mophaz.org/wp-admin
    Chapter 1958: http://1958.mophaz.org/wp-admin
    Chapter 2560: http://2560.mophaz.org/wp-admin

2. At the bottom (footer) of the chapter website through the link Admin Login. (Pictured below)
3. At the bottom (footer) of the department website through the link Admin Login. (Pictured below)

From there, you will land on the login page.  

– Your admin username is adminyourchapternumber (e.g. admin793)
– If you don’t know your password, contact either the department web master or department adjutant.

Step 3: Click Add Participant.

Step 4: Fill in the brick information.  This will include a first name, last name, section, and location.  
For organizations, such MOPH, DAV, etc. use the chapter number for the first name, and MOPH (if Military Order of the Purple Heart) as the last name.  Look up the name on the tool itself for a reference (http://mophaz.org/brick-locator).

The sections are either A, B, or C.

Then, select the image to upload, and click the open button.

Step 6: Click the submit button. (You might need to scroll down to see this button.)

Step 7: Go to the brick locator tool, search the name you just entered, and double-check all the information is correct.
