Ship Page Template

From NavalCoverMuseum
Jump to: navigation, search

After you add a new ship name or activate an existing ship name in the alphabetical ship list or designation index pages, the link will appear in red if no page exists for that link. To create the page, click on the link and the editor will appear. To make the process easier and maintain consistency, copy and paste the following template (all the text inside the box just below with the border made out of blue dashes) into the editor and then save the page. Once the page is saved, then you can go back and make modifications to only those areas you want to change.

<!-- How to edit this page:

For detailed information on editing this page, click the "How To Edit Pages" link 
in the navigation bar and look for the article on "Editing Ship Pages". If you 
run into trouble or need to do something a little more complicated, contact the 
Curator for help.

Don't forget to preview the page before saving it and please add a short description 
of the change in the Summary text box just above the Save / Show buttons at the bottom 
of the page. A short description would be something like "added naval covers".

<h3>Ship Name and Designation History</h3>
This section lists the names and designations that the ship had during 
its lifetime.
The list is in chronological order.
<table width="90%">
<tr>
<td valign="top">
<ol>
Ship class (optional)<br/>
Information and dates prior to commissioning (optional)<br/><br/>
<li>SHIP NAME and DESIGNATION<br/>DATES<br/>
Additional information (optional)<br/><br/>
</ol></td>
<td align="center" width="220" valign="top">

</td>
</tr>
</table>
<p> </p>

<h3>Naval Covers</h3>
This section lists active links to the pages displaying covers associated with the 
ship. There should be a separate set of pages for each name of the ship (for 
example, Bushnell AG-32 / Sumner AGS-5 are different names for the same 
ship so there should be one set of pages for Bushnell and one set for Sumner). 
Covers should be presented in chronological order (or as best as can be determined).

Since a ship may have many covers, they may be split among many pages so it doesn't 
take forever for the pages to load. Each page link should be accompanied by a date 
range for covers on that page.
<ol>
<li><!-- [[PAGE_NAME_Covers_Page_1 | --> Covers Page 1 <!-- ]] -->&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;(DATE RANGE)</li>
</ol>
<p>&nbsp;</p>

<h3>Postmarks</h3>
This section lists examples of the postmarks used by the ship. There should be a 
separate set of postmarks for each name and/or commissioning period. Within each set, 
the postmarks should be listed in order of their classification type. If more than one 
postmark has the same classification, then they should be further sorted by date of 
earliest known usage.

A postmark should not be included unless accompanied by a close-up image and/or an 
image of a cover showing that postmark. Date ranges MUST be based ONLY ON COVERS IN 
THE MUSEUM and are expected to change as more covers are added.
<br/>&nbsp;<br/>
>>> If you have a better example for any of the postmarks, please feel free to replace the
existing example.
