To help you figure things out, there is a Scoop Admin Guide which can hopefully answer most of your questions.
Most of the layout is changed in "Blocks", found in the admin tools menu
Features can be turned on and off, and configured, in "Site Controls" in the admin tools menu
Stories have an "edit" link right beside the "Full Story" link on an index page, and right beside the "Post a Comment" link on the full story page. They can also be edited by clicking the story title in the "Story List" admin tool
Boxes are what allow you to write new features for Scoop; they require a knowledge of the perl programming language to work with effectively, although you can often make small changes without knowing much perl. If you would like a feature added but cannot program it yourself, ScoopHost does custom Scoop programming as one of its services.
If you aren't sure where to look for a particular feature or piece of display, try the "Search Admin Tools" link in the admin tools menu.
The Preezy of the United Steezy want's you to get your corrupt Wayne Co buffoon under control before he costs Debbie Dingell, a Senate election. Remember Lon, Debbie and Bob King pulled a lot of strings to place you where you're at as MDP chair.
C'mon, a former Wayne Co Sheriff (1983-2000) needing multiple drivers under the guise of "personal protection"? Hackel doesn't. Really Ficano, exactly how dumb do you think everyone who is watching you could be?
Who is this paleface Irish turd trying to fool? Try remembering July 27, 2004
If approved by U.S. District Judge Paul Borman, McCann, of Livonia, faces six to 12 months in prison and up to a $20,000 fine.
McCann was indicted in November on charges of improperly using a federal grant to pay two interns to secretly build a database of Democratic Party donors. They performed an estimated 758 hours of political work while on the county's payroll in 2001, the county contended.
In November 2002, the FBI and Michigan State Police seized thousands of documents from McNamara's county office and the campaign office of McCann's former boss, then-Wayne County Prosecutor Michael Duggan, in a raid. Duggan is now head of the Detroit Medical Center.
Nice of then AG Granholm, to stall for her corrupt Wayne County friends, yes?
State Treasury officials may soon assume greater oversight of Wayne County's teetering finances.
State Treasurer Andy Dillon met with county officials this week and laid out a carrot-and-stick plan: If the county wants to continue using the state to float some $90 million in bonds each year, all county departments must agree to issue monthly spending reports to the state and County Commission.
The plan works like an allowance. If officials go over budget, the County Commission could deduct the overages from budgets the next month -- or take control of their finances, Sheriff Benny Napoleon said.
"I think that's illegal," said Napoleon, who met Thursday with Dillon.
The Dearborn Public Schools must make changes to comply with civil rights laws, following an enforcement action launched by a federal agency two years ago.
The U.S. Education Department said Thursday an agreement with the district and the department's Office for Civil Rights resolves the federal inquiry.
Parents with limited English proficiency in the heavily Arab-American [translation: Muhammadan] district were not given adequate access to information about their children's education in a language they could understand, according to the investigation.
Officials said the district also denied students learning English access to nonacademic programs and activities.
It's about time the district was required to change its policies, said Osama Siblani, publisher of the Arab American News.
Detroit - Mitt's presidential ambitions may meet their Waterloo in the Big Mitten and if they do, Mitt might have Bob to thank.
That's because Romney and Bob Ficano, the Wayne County executive who is caught in the crosshairs of an FBI corruption probe, have a certain friend in common -- John Rakolta. Rakolta is a prominent Detroit developer whose company, Walbridge, won a $300 million contract last summer to build the new Wayne County jail.
In turns out Rakolta is Romney's co-national finance chairman.
The Rakolta connection couldn't come at a worse time for Romney, whose commanding lead in his boyhood state of Michigan has shriveled to a statistical tie with Rick Santorum.
The feds are investigating a pattern of pay-to-play in the jail deal and have subpoenaed the county's records in connection with Walbridge. As it happens, Rakolta has been a contributor to the Democrat Ficano, a member of Ficano's finance host committee, and a $25,000 contributor to a non-profit business group know as Edge Opportunities that paid Turkia Mullin to lobby the county development czar.
