How to Add a Directory Listing to EsquireEmpire

  • First - Register. EsquireEmpire is a wiki Web site that can be edited by any one who joins by providing a log-in and email address.
    • Register. To register to edit, click media type="custom" key="2509047" and the register page will open in another window. Enter a Username and Password of your choice, along with your email address. Then, click on the Join button.
    • Verify Email Address. An email will be sent to the email address you provided. In that email you will have to click the "Please confirm your email address now" link.
    • Receive Approval. Once you are approved for editing you will receive an email and on EsquireEmpire pages you should see that the the silver outlined "protected" button on the top right of EsquireEmpire pages have changed to a green outlined "Edit this Page," which shows you which pages you can edit.
  • Second - Edit Directory. For the purpose of example, this tutorial will demonstrate adding a listing to the attorney directory.
    • Find Your Section. Go to the media type="custom" key="2697071" page. You can use the previous link and it will open the page in another window. From there, navigate to the page on which the attorney you want to add should appear.
    • Edit this Page. Click the green "Edit this Page" button and the WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editor will open easily allowing changes to be made to the page.
    • Add Listing. Add the attorney's name so that it appears alphabetically by last name. Next, highlight the attorney's name on the page where you just typed it and click the Insert Link (Z-inert-link-button-2.jpg) button. The "Create Link" window will open.
      • If the attorney does not currently have a page on EsquireEmpire, click the "OK" button and it will create a new page for the attorney's listing.
      • If the attorney does currently have a page on EsquireEmpire, click "Choose an existing page" and select the attorney's page from the drop down menu. This will create a link to the attorney's page.
    • Save. Click save to finish editing that page and then click on the link you just created, in order to go to the attorney's page.
    • Use Template. From the "Select a template ..." drop down menu pick the "Attorney Directory Listing" template and then edit the page to add the attorney's information.
  • Third - Recommendations.
    • Internet Browser. Although you can use Internet Explorer when adding or editing pages, EsquireEmpire recommends the use of Firefox, due to its built in spell check and the "Undo" capabilities available under Firefox's "Edit" heading.
    • Multiple Listings. It is appropriate to make a link to your attorney's page from each relevant page in the Oklahoma Lawyer & Attorney Directory, which would include a listing from the page for each area of the law in which the attorney practices, each court in which the attorney appears, and the county in which the attorney offices.
    • Link Exchange. If you edit a page to include a link to an external site, such as an attorney's Web site, it is requested that a reciprocal link from that Web site to EsquireEmpire be made.
    • Change Notification. Because EsquireEmpire allows any registered user to edit pages, it is suggested that you monitor changes made to pages you have worked on. By clicking on the "Notify Me" on the left navigation bar of a page, you can request email notification of any modifications, additions, or edits to that page.
    • Images. Providing an image for a directory page can greatly increase the attention visitors give to that page. For that reason, it is highly recommend that you upload a relevant image for any directory pages you create or edit. To do this follow the steps below:
      • Edit & Name Image. Prior to uploading an image you may want to use an image editor to scale it to the proper image size and save it to an appropriately small file size. Additionally, it is recommended that you save the image with a descriptive file name, such as attorney-name-esq.jpg.
      • Upload Image. While editing, place the cursor at the place where you want the image to appear and then click the "Insert Images and Files" (Y-image-button.jpg) button. Under "Upload New File" click the "Browse" button, select your image, and hit "Upload."
      • Select Image. With the "Insert Images and Files" window open, browese through the pages of images until you one you need or uploaded appears and then double click it to add it unto the page you are editing.
  • Clarity of Instructions. If any portion of these instructions is misleadings, incorrect, or confusing, please edit this page to resolve the concerns for future visitors.
