How do we add new orders? :)

I'm not an expert, but I added our branch's awards a few months ago — let's see if I can remember how I did that...

  • Create an image for the award, name it something like Branchname-Awardname.jpg (except using the actual name of your branch and award) and use the Upload file page to upload it. (Example)
  • Create a new page named "Template:Branchname-Awardname" (again, using the appropriate names) and set its contents to be that image, scaled to around 50px size, and linked to your branch's page. (Example)
  • Edit this page and add a line of text with the name of your award, and embed your award's image in it by writing {{Branchname-Awardname}}.
  • Edit the page for one or more people who are recipients of the award and add that same {{Branchname-Awardname}} snippet to the "awards = " line near the top of their page.

I hope that helps!
