CHANNEL INDEX PAGES


1. Where does the channel text box browser search? The text box browser searches in the channel's user, title and subtitle fields. This search is done only within channels in the same channel category. It does not search in channels in other categories.


2. In what order are channels displayed in channel pages? Channel pages prioritize new content, therefore they first display channels with most recent updates. An inactive channel will progressively move down the list.


3. What channels are displayed in carousel and which in the list? Exactly the same ones. Each page shows the same channels on the carousel and the list. They are two different and complementary ways of displaying channel information. Each one with its advantages they coexist in the same page. The list allows for an at a glance and an overall view. Carousel allows to see more detailed information for each channel.

CHANNEL BROWSING


4. How does voting a channel work? Each registered user can vote only once for a channel. This vote adds up to other user's votes. This is so to highlight the most popular channels.


5. How does the Favourite channels list work? Registered users can choose to add channels to their Favourite channels list. Add favourites button in each channel's heading is a reversible button used to add or delete the channel on the favourites list. To see the Favourite channels list you have to access Favourite channels in your private area in My MFDB.


6. How can I see older posts on a channel? Posts on each channel are displayed in order of creation from newest to oldest. To see older posts you have to go forward with the page navigator at the end of each channel's page. Therefore we will access the next page displaying the next group of posts.


 

 

 

Managing my channel

CHANNEL SETTING AND CONTENT UPLOAD


7. I have created my channel but it doesn't come up in the channel section First of all you must make a channel search in the right section. If it's a personal channel it should be in the personal channels section. Secondly ensure the publish checkbox in the channel's Profile form is checked. Otherwise it will remain invisible to other users.


8. I have a problem to upload an image Images must be JPG or PNG format and file size must not exceed 2 MB.


9. Why are images cropped when I upload them? The image manager in the channel section adapts uploaded images scaling and cropping them to fit the final image's proportions. To improve the result of this adjustment we recommend to upload images either with the same size or the same proportion as the final image that will be displayed. Each image's upload window shows the final image size in pixels.


10. How can I change data on the channel profile? Accessing My channel in the private area in My MFDB we have all management options for the channel. The first button gives access to the channel's Profile form. The rest give access to post management, to creating new posts and the channel.


11. How to change data on the personal profile? Some data does not belong to the channel's profile but belong to the user's profile. To change this data you must go to Update account.


12. I have published a post but it doesn't show in the channel As with the channel profile, posts have a checkbox to publish and unpublish. If the checkbox is not checked the post is not published and therefore is not visible on the channel. Items in the post list manager are displayed in green when they're published and in red when they're not published.


13. How can I change the post order on the channel? Currently it is not possible. Posts are displayed by creation date. From newest to oldest. If you want to rescue an old post for it to be displayed at the top, the only way to do it, is by creating a new post with the old post's content.


14. What is the Related films field in the posts for? Foreseeing many posts will mention database films, we want to make it easier to link the post's text to the film page in the database to allow users to understand the context and find out more about the films.


15. Can I delete a comment that I don't like on one of my posts in my channel? Comment control belongs to MFDB administration. If you have spotted an offensive comment or you consider it contradicts the use regulations established by MFDB you can report it via the Contact form. If we confirm the comment is inappropriate it will be deleted.
