This item helps you insert an image in an article (or event) to make the content come alive. You can either upload an image from your computer or link to one already on the website.

The site uses images 250 pixels wide (and 400 pixels wide if a larger image is useful on the article page). Ideally we use square images, that is 250x250 or 400x400, but getting the width right is the more essential of the two. For photos we use JPGs at a quality of about 80. You will probably need to use an image editor to reduce your digital photos to these formats/quality level. Eyes glazed? See the paragraph above.

This item helps you to create and edit events, which are used for all items associated with a time and date (see Create/edit an article for all other items).

Ideally the event time and date information is stored once only in the event as the single source of truth. Articles that refer to the event should include a link to it rather than duplicating this key information. This would mean less chance of error particularly when event details change and online references need to change.

This FAQ item provides guidance on how to easily include a bridge hand and/or bidding in an article or event.
