To create an event webpage in the style of this one:

  • Fork the template repository (as Github limits the number of forks an individual can make of a single repo, you may need to fork a different oh-campus site or email Github to request your previous forks be made free-standing repositories.)
  • Customize
    • Change repository name to reflect event
    • Change colors if needed (I like to use school colors)
    • Change text: date, time, location, name of hosts
    • Create a new sign up form for the event (may just duplicate previous ones) and change the link on the website.
  • Add, commit, and push changes back to Github.
  • Ask Asheesh to create the Nearly Free Speech.net site.
    • Hopefully this will have better instructions eventually
  • Log into linode.com (username openhatch, password a terrible secret) and create a new CNAME record
    • Go to DNS manager and click 'Create new CNAME record'
    • Alias <campusname>.openhatch.org to oh<campusname>.nfshost.com
    • Also alias www.<campusname> to <campusname>
  • SSH into linode
