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.
Besides Rick Snyder, same 'ol same old... Amnesty for gatecrashers.
The immigration overhaul passed by the U.S. Senate could put a big squeeze on the budgets of state and local governments.

"Potentially, we are going to create a financial catastrophe for states and localities," said Sheri Steisel, senior federal affairs counsel and a human services expert at the National Conference of State Legislatures. "The states will end up with the cost and consequences of the federal decision-making, with very little resources to rely on to make up the difference."
Michiganders must really enjoy being little more than Debt Slaves. Wolverines - do not. Frankly, I don't see a snowball's chance in Hell that Snyder will be a second term anything in this state, but go ahead "liberty-minded network" with squandering your time and resources on Calley.
"Since it's tax season, I've had a huge amount of calls from my constituents when they find out what their tax liability is," Jones told MLive on Thursday. "I think it's extremely unfair when people have planned their life for their retirement and then suddenly, in the midst of their retirement, they get a new tax."
Senate Bill 280 is co-sponsored by Sens. Tory Rocca of Sterling Heights, Joe Hune of Hamburg Township, Dave Hildenbrand of Lowell and Jack Brandenburg of Harrison Township.
All five Republicans voted in 2011 against a bill backed by Gov. Rick Snyder that rewrote state tax code, eliminating the oft-criticized Michigan Business Tax and cutting personal income tax exemptions on pensions while limiting homestead property credits.
Jones said he supported the MBT-repeal portion of the legislation, [snip]
Votes do indeed have consequences. I know plenty of folks who have just had enough of JenniRick Snydholm's amnesty promoting, BIGGER TAXES, Bigger Government, and Bigger Spending federal government dependency Bee esS. Looks like the Taxed Enough Already message is finally slapping the stealth Democrat self-invented Nerd persona upside his bulbous head with legislators now fearful of losing their elected seats. Good. Just wait until folks figure out what was done to them with Blue Cross Blue Shield in 2016, and bowing to the Nerd.
SB 280: SML Richardville, and reelected Speaker Bolger (if not indicted by mid August), have yet another legislative opportunity to salvage the '14 election for the MIaGOP, but will they lead the way?
