To help you figure things out, there is a Scoop Admin Guide which can hopefully answer most of your questions.
Most of the layout is changed in "Blocks", found in the admin tools menu
Features can be turned on and off, and configured, in "Site Controls" in the admin tools menu
Stories have an "edit" link right beside the "Full Story" link on an index page, and right beside the "Post a Comment" link on the full story page. They can also be edited by clicking the story title in the "Story List" admin tool
Boxes are what allow you to write new features for Scoop; they require a knowledge of the perl programming language to work with effectively, although you can often make small changes without knowing much perl. If you would like a feature added but cannot program it yourself, ScoopHost does custom Scoop programming as one of its services.
If you aren't sure where to look for a particular feature or piece of display, try the "Search Admin Tools" link in the admin tools menu.
Heaven's to Betsy, what has this world come to when the Ruling Class would be required to read Laws that govern us, and they exempt themselves from?
WASHINGTON, DC - Today, Congressman Kerry Bentivolio introduced the Read the Bills Act of 2013. This legislation makes important changes to the way Congress does business by giving ample time to review legislation before it is voted on, requiring that all votes on passage be taken by roll call, and by providing that legislation shows in context how it modifies existing law.
It is a basic moral question that a member of Congress should only vote to pass legislation having read and understood it. The Read the Bills Act accomplishes this by requiring that every vote on a bill's passage take place no less than 7 days after the text of the bill is available on-line to the public where it can easily be found. There is an exception to the "7 day rule" for declarations of war.
"It is our duty to be transparent to the constituents we serve. This legislation will increase transparency and ensure that Congress doesn't pass legislation to find out what is in it," said Rep. Bentivolio. "Every law affects how the American people live and it is a dereliction of the Oath of Office to pass laws without knowing what they are."
Uh-oh. No more "unanimous consent" sneak through? The oligarch running the District of Corruption isn't going to be too happy about that, Rep. Bentivolio. However, you have my support on this bill. As an aside... any friendly wagers that this legislation dies in committee like S.3360 did in the Senate last year?
Spineless squish republiCant's in Lansing, take note of what testosterone looks like.
The South Carolina House approved a bill Wednesday criminalizing the implementation of President Obama's health care law in the state.
The Republican-controlled House voted 65-39 on the Freedom of Health Care Protection Act.
The act renders "null and void certain unconstitutional laws enacted by the Congress of the United States taking control over the health insurance industry and mandating that individuals purchase health insurance under threat of penalty."
"This kind of victory occurs when the grassroots across the State come together and coalesce," Chris Lawton, spokesman for the Greenville Tea Party, told The Greenville Post. "I could not be prouder."
The bill declares "Obamacare" unconstitutional - despite the Supreme Court ruling last year that the Affordable Health Care Act was constitutional - and that there will be criminal penalties for enforcing the law.
Gov. Nikki Haley earlier this year said that the state will not implement the nation's health care law.
About damn time a BOLD message is sent. Of course, the above is example why "Team R" in Michigan, continues its path of dwindling election results with following the stealth Democrat Nerd agenda. Merely being a Corporatists "it's about jobs" fed, and state, debt slave is setting the Pale Pastel bar too low for this once Great State, and Nation. BUT, y'all got your second dose of Bobby ShowStak leadership rewards, didn'tchya?
"I can deal with a world that has same-sex marriage."
- GOP former Attorney General Mike COX, a self-described social conservative who helped lead the charge for Michigan's same-sex marriage ban, acknowledging his shift on the issue.
Cox: I'm Not Against Gay Marriage
"Mike COX, the former Republican Attorney General who led the legal charge to uphold the state's constitutional ban on gay marriage, told MIRS today he's had a change of heart and could support legislative same-sex marriage if Prop 2 of 2004 were not in place."
Congratulations, Mike. You're lucky to have someone in your life as dense as Laura, who will still accept you as having any credibility.
