  • Your New Scoop Site

    Welcome to Scoop!

    To help you figure things out, there is a Scoop Admin Guide which can hopefully answer most of your questions.

    Some tips:

    • 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.

    Keep it classy, Oakland Press! The ink is barely dry on Welday's announcement that he will challenge US Rep. Gary Peters for his seat, and the Oakland Press is asking for a time-out. That sure didn't take long! OP headline this morning: Abilities aside, it's too soon for campaigning. Being that it is now April, it is not too far from the June 2007 announcement that Gary Peters made a few years ago that he was going after Joe Knollenberg's seat. That's like a 2-month difference. (and yes, his official statement was in August, but everyone knew in June if not sooner) Just out of curiosity, I did a search to see if the Oakland Press ran a similar piece 2 years ago saying that Peters was getting in too early. Know what I found? Crickets chirping. Yup - nada. So spare me the feigned indignation, OP, that the battle in 2010 is too soon to start now, when June 2007 somehow was not. In any case, here are some snippets from the editorial:
