Navigation Menu (down the left):
This is technically two menus, one for visitors and one for members logged-in to the system. The menus are quite different. Also, this menu changes based on your "role" on the website. Until you log-in to the site, via the MWSA Member Access fields, you don't get to see everything!
- Add content - this menu changes based on your role(s) on the website.
- Handbook - members will see additional handbooks and guides, such as "Member Resources," that are hidden from non-members.
- Forums - members can post to forums.
- Polls - members can vote on polls.
- News Feeds (RSS) - military and publishing related news from around the world.
- Content Summary - (not the same for all members, this depends on your role) displays various lists of what has been added to the site. Not every list is available to all members.
- Member Profiles - a quick "plain text" list of members with accounts on the website.
Articles and Reviews:
The "Articles and Reviews" are always visible to non-members and members.
