We’ve made some big changes at the Food and Health Alliance website. This page introduces some of our new features, like tags and comments, and how to use them. To save you time and make the site work harder for you, use the house rules as a guide for your contributions and comments.
You're looking for information. We want to help you find it, and we’ve built in different ways to search and explore the site.
Found too much? Narrowing things down
Use the column on the left to filter your results and narrow things down. You can limit the results by type of resource, by subject matter, and geography. The numbers will show you how many results are in each category.
We’ve included lots of new features on the site, and hope you’ll find them useful.
Comments: let others know what you think
Share your thinking. Most of the pages in the site will be open for comments. Is there something in the resource that you found particularly relevant? Were you involved in this project? Have you worked with that organisation? Let us know what you think of the resource, suggest related information, ask questions, or share what you’ve learned from similar projects…it's over to you!
Stick to the house rules to help you get your point across.
Tagging: make sure you and others can find the resource
We’ve added labels, that we call ‘tags’ to describe what the resource is, and what it’s about, but we’d like you to help us! Are you part of a special interest group or a local network? Help other people in the group find material you think is relevant by adding a shared tag (e.g. highlands or HEAT 3). If you are using more than one tag, you need to add a comma to separate the tags.
As with the “what is this about?” labels, clicking on a tag attached to a resource will give you a quick set of search results of other resources that have that tag too.
If you are part of a local network or special interest group, and would like a page of your own where you can share information and comments, please talk to us.
Share this with a colleague
If you’ve found something that may be of interest to your colleagues, why not share it? You’ll see a few buttons on each resource to make this easier. You can share it directly by email, through a social bookmarking site like delicious, or through a network like Facebook. Just click on whichever of the icons you’d like to use.
I found this useful
If you found a resource useful, just click on this button on the top right of the page. It’ll help make it more visible in the site so that other people can find it.
We encourage your contributions to the site, and welcome knowledge-sharing. But we do not guarantee to publish your submissions and we reserve the right to delete or refuse publication.
Please follow the general guidelines below, and be aware that we may delete your comments and other additions to the site if they are outside these. If you have any questions about these guidelines, please talk to us.
We’re keen to hear what you think about the new site, about the Alliance, and, most importantly, about you and your work. If you have any resources, future events, any news, reports, research, support materials, campaigns or project details that you’d like to share, please talk to us!
