BUILDING AND MANAGING YOUR FEATURED ISSUES PAGE
As a Page Manager, you have access to a set of pages pertaining to your Featured Issue. The basic format is to have pages arranged in three levels. Level 1 is an Introductory Page (INTRO). Level 2 is an Analysis Page. Level 3 is an Organizing page (ORG). These are the Core Pages for each UNA-Orlando Featured Issue.
Level 1: The INTRO page is meant to be the user's first contact with the Featured Issue. The concept is that people will lose interest in 8 seconds if the purpose of the page isn't immediately evident. Consider the INTRO page to be similar to the upper half of the front page of a newspaper. Content on this first page should be limited to information that is most recent and/or most relevant. There should only be enough there to interest the user to want to learn more about the issue. A link at the bottom of the INTRO page will lead the user to an ANALYSIS Page.
Level 2: The ANALYSIS Page can hold much more content than the INTRO page. While the INTRO page needs to adhere closely to a uniformed template, the ANALYSIS page can be arranged in any way that the Page Manager feels is best. The concept of the ANALYSIS page is that the user has shown that she/he is interested in the issue. This gives the Page Manager the freedom to add content to the ANALYSIS page without fearing that the user will lose interest. A link at the bottom of the ANALYSIS page will lead to an ORG page.
Level 3: The ORG page is meant to be used by the Page Manager to organize content before it is added to other locations. Users, after reading through the ORG page and then reaching the bottom of the ANALYSIS page, if they are still interested in seeing more content, they can read through the ORG page. However, the primary purpose of the ORG page is hold content until the Page Manager decides what is to be done with it. Consider it to be a warehouse of ideas. Links at the bottom of the page will lead the user back to the ANALYSIS page or all the way back to the INTRO page.
While many issues will have a basic format, others will have have a complex format, meaning that the issue will be addressed from multiple perspectives and therefore will have multiple sets of pages. Most of the complex will be addressed from a USA perspective and a WORLD perspective. Several of them will have more than 2 perspectives, including the example below. If an issue will be addressed from multiple perspectives, the issue will also include a navigation page that provides a brief overview of the issue and includes links at the bottom of the page that will lead to the INTRO pages.
The Administrative Page is not available to anyone other than the Page Manager and UNA-Orlando chapter leadership. The purpose of the Administrative Page is to allow chapter leadership to provide instruction, guidance, or critique. The Page Manager will notice information on this page
The Slush Page is not available to anyone other than the Page Manager and UNA-Orlando chapter leadership. The purpose of the Slush Page is to hold content that the Page Manager wants to remove from the INTRO, ANALYSIS, or ORG pages but might want to use the content at a later date.
