RidgeStar has scattered useful documentation in several places:
1) on this site
2) on
3) on

Here are links to some of the information that might be helpful

Date-> Comparator - Use > < <> and the like to look at specific date ranges

Date Formats-> - Identifies what dates will be accepted and what they will be interpreted as.

Error message - Change the actual wording of error messages by making a Setting=Messagexxxx

Fragment-> Wild Card - Use _ (Underscore) as a single wild card and % as a multiple wild card in fragment fields.

Help bubble - help Place a help bubble after error messages by making a Topic with Tag=Messsagennnn

Page Design-> - Describes the fundamental page design of each page on the site. Gives terminology of the different areas.

Symbols-> - The names and meanings of all those little guys in the ixxxx.png format. (Right click on a symbol and look at Properties to find a symbol name.) This from the site. This is list is more comprehensive (takes a while to load).

Text Format-> - As used in the Topics, and Issues Mechanism. Paragraphs, Line breaks, bold, reference to the site name, and more

Text Format - More Text Format options. Underline, inserted symbols.

Token format - 'Tokens' is the RidgeStar term for the instructions included in square brackets. The 'Token' instructions are ended when a space is encountered. That is why you need to use the tilde ' ' as a space if you want a text formatting token to encompass more than one word. HOWEVER there is a problem if you use the Token [ :imagename ] to insert an image into text (such as in an Event or Topic/Text element). The trailing square bracket must have a space after it. If you put a character, such as a period after the trailing bracket, you will generate an error symbol error .

Topics & Text-> - How to add and format 'static' pages to the site. Used for Stuff to Know and FAQ. Can also be used to create pages linked to from Events or even emails.

Request Status - Referees can view their outstanding requests. As an Administrator you can see the exact same page that the referee sees by using this URL /requeststatus?user=42607&debug=1 (You will have to put in the correct User Key number.)

Setting values - Report a setting value with [ csoSetting ] If the setting has multiple values you can use something like [ csoSetting ][ Strength ]
