[ Add A Record | Special characters | Modify a Record | Record Validation ]

If you are copying your text from your word processor, be sure to save the file as ASCII text prior to copying this text into the description area. Failing to do so will result in extra formatting codes and spaces being added to your record. This could cause problems for your record and the database.

For line breaks and paragraph breaks, simply leave the space within your text and the script will automatically add these breaks in the display of the textarea fields. Remove any extra spaces at the end of paragraphs! See Other Formatting.

To Add a Record:

Adding a Record is very easy using our database.

  1. Register as a new user by choosing "Login / Signup" from the menu.

    Choose a username (one word only, using 4-10 characters, with no spaces, using only a-z; case-sensitive)

    Choose a password (must be one word that contains 4-8 characters).

  2. Login again using your user name and password.

  3. Choose "Add" from the menu. Complete the form presented to you.

  4. Click "Add" button.

The description field(s) provide a means of inserting a large amount of text. The amount of data allowed within each field will be specified for this database. It's very easy in most word processing programs to count the number of characters in your file.

Be sure to avoid using special characters such as:   ""   @   #   %   $   ^   &   *. These characters may not display properly in all browsers.

To Modify a Record:

  1. "Log On" using your username and password.

  2. Choose "Modify" from the menu.

  3. Search for the record by typing in your userid in the keyword field or "List All".

  4. A form will open will all the information contained within your record, simply change the current information to your new information.

  5. Click "Modify" button.

Record Validation:

This database may be setup using a Validation process. As such, your record will not be displayed to visitors until the administrator has verified and/or approved your entry. This is used for checking for proper content or special characters which could disrupt our database, etc. prior to your record being activated.

Special Characters:

Be sure to avoid using special characters such as:   ""   @   #   %   $   ^   &   *.

Other Formatting:

An ordered list of items use:Display
<LI> Item 1
<LI> Item 2
  1. Item 1
  2. Item 2
An unordered list of items use:Display
<LI> Item 1
<LI> Item 2
  • Item 1
  • Item 2

You can also use Bold to highlight specific words. The bold tag requires an opening and closing tag. Example: <B> text here </B>
