Content Types to be used by non-Adminsitrators

Type Feature
Basic Page Primary content type used for member input. Simple to use. Provides for rich text formatting, embedding of links and pictures.
Announcements Special content type based on the Basic page. Entries automatically posted to Home page Recent Announcements section and automatically ordered by creation timestamp. There is no expiration, must be manually removed.
Article Special content type based on the Basic page. Entries automatically posted to the center content section of the Home page. Anticipated use is for posting a important notice. There is no expiration, must be manually removed.

A user with Content Editor permissions may edit most web content and create new content. While many content types are available, the user should restrict himself to the three listed above with the Basic page the one to be used in most instances. The website does contain a number of the other types which were created by an experienced Drupal user.

In many instances the content will require a new or modified menu position. A change to the menus requires Structure Editor permissions.
