Community Posts - Help Guide


The Community Posts feature allows both members and non-members to submit non-association events for administrative approval to be included in the Newsletter. It consists of the following five parts:

1. Member Submission System:

Located in the Member's Features section of the main member's page, this system allows members to submit their event details for consideration.

2. Non-Member Submission System:

This system enables anyone from the general public to submit an article or event for administrative review and approval.

3. Community Post Management System:

Admins have access to this system, which lists all past and current submissions. Admins can edit, approve, and post the submissions to social media platforms.

4. Newsletter Integration:

The Newsletter Editor includes an option to pull all approved submissions for publication in the Newsletter, providing wider exposure for the events.

5. Public Web Page:

A dedicated web page can be included on your public website. This page lists all approved articles within a specific date range, allowing visitors to access the community posts.

Enabling Community Posts:

To activate all the features associated with Community Posts, administrators can follow these steps:

1. Access the MMS Configuration:

Click on the MMS Configuration link located at the bottom of the Administrative Functions section on the Member's Main page.

2. Open Community Posts Configuration:

Within the configuration menu, find the Community Posts Configuration link, located about two-thirds down the left column of links.

3. Configure Settings:

On the Community Posts Configuration page, you will find three settings to customize:

- Feature Activation: Use the checkbox to turn the Community Posts feature and associated links on or off.

- Alternate Title: Specify an alternate title to replace "Community Posts" on links throughout the system headers and the Members Page.

- Editor Email Address: Enter the email address where notifications will be sent when a submission is made.
