Welcome to Veteran Advocates of Ore-Ida (VAOI)

What is Veteran Advocates?

Veteran Advocates of Ore-Ida was incorporated as a non-profit in Oregon in March of 2008. VAOI was created to ensure veterans and their dependents have access to every service to which they're entitled."We're not here to compete with the local VFW, the American Legion or veterans services agencies," says Ron Verini, chairman and president. "We're here to complement them. What we do is help veterans make connections with service agencies."

In this site, the content is stored in a database. The look and feel are created by a template. Joomla! brings together the template and your content to create web pages.

What we Do

To login to your site use the user name and password that were created as part of the installation process. Once logged-in you will be able to create and edit articles and modify some settings.

Once you are logged-in, a new menu will be visible. To create a new article, click on the "Submit Article" link on that menu.

The new article interface gives you a lot of options, but all you need to do is add a title and put something in the content area. To make it easy to find, set the state to published.

You can edit an existing article by clicking on the edit icon (this only displays to users who have the right to edit).

Site and Administrator

Your site actually has two separate sites. The site (also called the front end) is what visitors to your site will see. The administrator (also called the back end) is only used by people managing your site. You can access the administrator by clicking the "Site Administrator" link on the "User Menu" menu (visible once you login) or by adding /administrator to the end of your domain name. The same user name and password are used for both sites.
