Guide for submitting News

Submitting News

The pages in Aragon Monthly are static generated pages which are generated from .md aka MarkDown files submitted in the aragon-monthly repository.
All submissions must conform to this structure in a MarkDown format

  • Use the basic template as a basis for your submission. See the pre-filled template to see how a full table of news should look like
    • If someone has already submitted an item and there is an existing structure, add to that, or if the row of 3 news items is full, add a new table
  • Input all the required information, if there is an image associated, add it to the images directory
    • If the Tag you are using doesn't have a tag.md file created yet, create one and add your content there
      • Common tags like DAOs and Aragon will exist by default
    • Use [<img src="../images/name_of_image.png">](URI_to_news) for entries with an image. Entries without an image should have the monthly_no_image.png used
    • The index.md will be compiled by the Editors at the end of the month from the news submitted as tags.md entries
  • If you don't know where each file should go, see the repository structure for guidance
