Knight and Council Pages

Once you create a knight or council post, you can link it to its page:
http://[site.domain]/council/[council #]


Are the knights on the scoreboatd and the knights post type the same?
  • No. They are separate so that the post type is only for the directory and has more information. The knights under the scoreboard are only for the scoreboards.
What about assemblies?
  • Adding them as another post type is planned.
Will there be a council finder for prospective and new members?
  • It’s planned.
Can you make creating state office holders and program directors lists that use the knight post type?
  • It’s also planned.
What about version 1.0?
  • The first version was only the scoreboard and had different name.
