TEMPLATE – Article

This is the standard template for an article. Articles appear on specific pages throughout the site.

Title

The article title is the big bold headline above the image. It should be short, punchy and engaging. It has NO unnecessary words (be ruthless).

Content

The content is about 400 to 800 words at most. It is doctrinal, and goes through an approval process.

It doesn’t use Revival Centres jargon – it uses clear, crisp and direct language that someone who doesn’t know anything about us could understand.

Featured image

It has a Featured Image added that is 800×400 pixels, with something good in the middle of the picture (because the image will be used in other places, cut differently). The image is always a photo (no cartoons or drawings). The featured image relates to the subject material – but try not to be too obvious, or distracting.

Other pictures

There may be other images added to the story, but this is less likely than for other kinds of posts. It may include timelines, charts, or specific drawings to illustrate a point. Each image will normally be of 800 pixels width, but may be of differing lengths. Smaller images can be used, and if so, they are to be centred.

Each image will have a caption, created by using the “Add Media” button when creating the post. Alignment is set to “none”, the alt text describes the image; the caption will show on the post; the link will be set to “None” and the size will be set to “full” (because you have already made it an up to 800 wide image).

Style guide

If writing a number under ten, write the number out as words, e.g. “the candlestick had seven branches”.

If writing a date, write it like this: “21 February” or “21 February 2016” (if the year is really needed). Don’t say “21st February”.

Internal headings within the story will be done using the <h4>This is the heading</h4> codes.

Note that an internal heading has a leading capital only and no full stop

Tags will be determined by us, and will relate to the content of the article only.

Comments are to be turned off.

Finish the article with a strong point that summarises its message.

The Revival Centres Church was established after World War 2 in Australia, and has since grown into having assemblies around the world. We believe God is still answering people directly and personally today.
