TagesWoche Newscoop 4.4 Implementation

Getting started

Newscoop enables you to host multiple, multi-lingual publications on the same web server. The process of setting up a new on-line publication with Newscoop can be divided into three steps:

  1. Configuring the publication, and specifying the theme to be used
  2. Establishing the structure of your publication, with issues and sections
  3. Adding content, managing content, and publishing it

This part of the Newscoop manual is aimed at TagesWoche editors and journalists working their way through these three steps. Theme design is covered in the companion manual The Newscoop 4 Cookbook, available from Sourcefabric.

Logging in

The first step begins with logging in to the administration interface of your Newscoop server. This is a special interface which is only available to the staff of your publication. Readers who have accounts with your online publication will log in using the home page of your website instead.

The URL you should enter into your web browser for the administration interface is the URL of your publication, followed by admin. For example:

Below the User name: and Password: fields, click the drop-down menu to select an interface Language. Then click the Login button.

Login page

If you have previously logged in using a different Language, your browser will have saved a cookie to remember your preference. If your browser does not allow you to switch languages, you may need to delete this cookie. Please refer to the documentation for your web browser for details of how to do this. In Mozilla Firefox, for example, you can delete cookies by clicking Preferences, then Privacy, then Clear your recent history on the main menu.

Feedback data

When you log into Newscoop for the first time, you may see a pop-up window asking for your permission to send feedback data to Sourcefabric. This data about your server installation helps Sourcefabric to improve Newscoop. Click the Yes, Help Newscoop button to send the data, or click the Remind me in 1 week button to skip this step for now.

This data is collected according to the Sourcefabric privacy policy which you can read online by clicking the link in the pop-up window. If you wish to review the data before sending it to Sourcefabric, you can do this by clicking the link Show feedback data to be sent. This action expands the pop-up window to show the data for your installation.

You may need to scroll down inside the window to see all of the feedback data. If you wish to close the pop-up window without clicking either button, you can click the x icon in the top right corner.

There has been error in communication with Booktype server. Not sure right now where is the problem.
