Website Documentation

This page archives notes about the operation of the website.


Design notes, plans, and requirements are here:


After you login to edit or upload, edit and upload links will appear in the primary navigation strip for faster access in the rest of the session.

Custom Markup

Several site-specific tags are available to use:

There is also extensive custom markup for creating calendars. Documentation will be written up at some point, but consult a previous season (MTB 2011 is particularly good) for examples.

Internal Controls

In addition to the main content, some aspects of the site and page layout are manageable through the wiki itself:

To delete a page, e.g., for the site wide alert and the group sidebars, edit the page and change the text to "delete" all by itself. Note that you irretrievably lose the page history doing this, so be careful! On that note, nothing substantial or critical should be kept in the alert, and probably not the sidebars either. They're just to help with navigation, cute content bits, etc.


The photos are currently all controlled by the main Javascript and not manageable from the Web.

A new random top banner is chosen for display if the user hasn't looked at the page in the past twenty minutes.

The sidebar photo is random on every page hit, but mousing over reveals simple navigation controls to scroll through the list. Clicking on the photo brings up the full version, along with a description and attribution. That photo is dismissed by clicking on it.


tjkopena and shopengarten have access to edit the whole site as well as server access and should be able to fix most problems.

tjkopena has access to the Google Analytics data.
