Submitting your chapter's news articles to the PTWW website allows members and visitors to know what is going on with your chapter.  Articles that you submit will appear on the front page of the PTWW website.  Each time that you submit an article, those subscribed to the "Chapter news" mailing list and/or RSS feed are automatically notified, too. 

  

It is easy to add chapter news articles!  Please follow the steps below.  Note that steps 1-4 only need to be done once.  Use steps 5-10 each time you want to submit an article.

  1. Create an account on the PTWW website via the "people picture" next to the lock in the upper-right corner of the website, or via the "Create account" link in the "Helpful Tools" menu at the bottom of the website.

  2. Once you have created an account and received the confirmation e-mail, confirm your account by clicking the link in the e-mail.  

  3. To confirm your identity to PTWW as the chapter representative for submitting chapter news for your chapter, please send your name, e-mail address, and account name by contacting the PTWW webmaster at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by clicking here.

  4. Once you received confirmation from the PTWW webmaster, proceed with the following steps:

  5. Login to the website via the "lock picture" in the top-right corner of the page or the "Login" link in the "Helpful Tools" menu at the bottom of the page.

  6. In the "Tell Us" menu at the top of the website, click the "Chapter Information > Chapter News" link.

  7. On the "K2 Add Item" page, enter the title of your news article in the "Title" field.

  8. The "Category" field is already set correctly to "Chapter news"; it does not need changed.

  9. In the large, white box at the bottom of the window (below the word processor toolbars), type the chapter news content.  You can write as much as you would like in this box.  

  10. If you wish to insert a picture, click the [Image] tab above the word processing toolbar.  Click the [Choose File] button, browse your hard drive to locate the picture, click the picture to select it, then click the [Open] button.

  11. To submit your news article, click the [Save] button in the top-right corner of the window.  You may need to scroll to the top of the window to see it.

  12. In a few moments, you will see a blue bar at the top of the window saying "Item saved".  Click the [Close] button in the top-right corner to close the window.

  13. Note that submissions may take up to a week to be reviewed, approved, and posted on the PTWW website.  If your article needs posted immediately, please contact the PTWW webmaster at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. after your submission to request expedited processing.

If you have any questions or problems with this procedure, please contact the PTWW webmaster at This email address is being protected from spambots.
