Editor

Overview

The Hall of Fame Online Editor is used to create the public facing interactive experiences. Changes made in the editor can be previewed before or after making them live using its Virtual Interactive Display. The editor was designed to be easy to use and easy to access from any contemporary web enabled device with a supported web browser and a high-speed Internet connection. Supported web browsers include the latest versions of Edge, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Opera. Some of the common tasks the editor is used to accomplish include:

Creating and editing attributes, which are used to uniquely identify members

Creating and configuring modules, which are used to organize, search, and display members and member content

Customizing module styles, and assigning module templates to alter a module's appearance and functionality

Configuring the attract screen layout and styles

Creating and editing module menus, which are used to navigate the interactive

Creating and editing module pages, which are used to display member content

Creating and editing members, which represent those being commemorated

Assigning attributes to members and editing attribute values

Creating, editing, or configuring member content, such as write-ups, images, and videos

Creating attract screen overrides specific to individual members

Configuring settings, such as creating and managing station configurations, interactive devices, and station assignments

 

 

Getting Started, How to...

Create New Users

Each installation requires at least two types of users, including an Administrative user and an INTERACTIVE ONLY user. Like the primary account user created at sign-up, an Administrative user has full access to the editor, but is more secure because it cannot access sensitive account information such as billing details. The INTERACTIVE ONLY user has no access to the editor but is required to access the live, public facing interactive from each interactive station (kiosk).

 

It is strongly recommended that at least one new Administrative user be created for use with the editor, and that the password be changed for the INTERACTIVE ONLY user that was created for you at sign-up.

 

See Creating Users under the Editor Users topic to learn how to create and edit users.
