Course publish challenge

So after 2 days of trying to publish my course on WordPress all I have gotten is a screenshot of the OER homepage. I would really appreciate your help on this. I followed all instructions, renamed and moved pages. It appears I have run into a dead end street. I would very much appreciate your help.

Here is a screenshot of what is being published to my site:

  1. 1. The “Request snapshot” widget must go on the page that includes the outline of your course. (I deleted a copy I found on your course home page.)

    2. You have some duplicate pages, so I’m not certain what is your current course outline. http://wikieducator.org/User:Vvladimirschi/courseplanningpage/Course_Outline looks like it contains part of the outline (but not the course landing page or the snapshot widget). http://wikieducator.org/User:Vvladimirschi/Course_outline has another outline, but is also missing the snapshot widget and doesn’t have as many links as the first one. Are you planning to merge these into a single outline?

    3. You do not have any email address registered with WikiEducator now, so you will not receive email when someone edits one of your pages, leaves a comment on one of the pages, or when the snapshot completes.

  2. The correct Outline page is: http://wikieducator.org/Résumé_Writing_for_EFL_Learners/Course_Outline
    but I have not inserted the corresponding links. Should I and how should I name them?
    What about the http://wikieducator.org/Résumé_Writing_for_EFL_Learners/Landing_page and the http://wikieducator.org/Résumé_Writing_for_EFL_Learner/Home_page? Will these appear on the snapshot? I was under the assumption that we weren’t supposed to use the http://wikieducator.org prefix. Is that correct? I have added an email address in the preferences page. Thanks.

    • It doesn’t matter if you pick the main namespace or your User: namespace. The main namespace is normally used for public projects, and building withing your User: pages suggests a personal project where you are not interested in collaboration (or at least not yet).

      Whichever you choose, I would recommend keeping everything together and building a tree structure of pages that reflects the tree structure of the outline. That isn’t strictly a requirement, but it does make for a single mental model of the course/page layout.

      So since you have created a page called Résumé_Writing_for_EFL_Learners/Course_Outline for your outline, it would be easy to make the page called Résumé_Writing_for_EFL_Learners for use as the course “landing page” or home page.

      Because of the constraints of the theme’s navigation layout, it is best to keep the menu items short… a word or two.

      So the outline might start like:

      * [[Résumé_Writing_for_EFL_Learners|Resume Writing]]
      * Learning pathways
      ** [[Résumé_Writing_for_EFL_Learners/Résumé vs CV|Resume vs CV]]
      *** [[Résumé_Writing_for_EFL_Learners/Résumé vs CV/Outline|Outline]]
      *** [[Résumé_Writing_for_EFL_Learners/Résumé vs CV/Introduction|Introduction]]
      *** [[Résumé_Writing_for_EFL_Learners/Résumé vs CV/How to proceed|How to proceed]]
      * Draft 1
      *** [[Résumé_Writing_for_EFL_Learners/Draft 1/Introduction|Introduction]]
      *** [[Résumé_Writing_for_EFL_Learners/Draft 1/How to proceed|How to proceed]]
      

      Pages that you have not yet created will appear as “red links.” When you click on them you will get to a page with a Create link that will allow you to create the page and fill in the content.
