Posting Content Using The “Posts” Feature

  • From the Account Dashboard, on the menu running down the left hand side of the page click or hover over “Posts”. This will reveal two options; “All Posts” and “Add New”. To create a new post, choose “Add New”.
  • From the “Add New” posts section, all you need to do is fill out the post form. Choose a title for your post, and add your post content.
  • There is a basic text editor with an interface similar to Microsoft Word for individuals unfamiliar with HTML markup. This is the “Visual” tab in the top right corner of the content box in the post form. You may find it useful to write a post in Microsaoft Word, or another word processor and copy it into the new post form. The “Visual” text editor will do its best to interprit how you intend the text to look.
  • Once you have your new post ready to go, select “Submit for Review” in the top-right hand corner of the page. Once a site moderator (Dick,Bob,Chris) approve the post it will appear live on the front end of the website.
  • There are very few reasons why a post would not be approved, or might be modified slightly. Reasons include inappropriate language or posts that are inappropriate in general.
  • Alternatively, you have the option to stop half way through a new post and return to it for later by choosing “Save Draft” instead of “Submit for Review”.
  • After writing your post, you will want to choose categories and tags to associate with the post. These options determine where on the website the post will appear, and help make your post easier to search for once the website becomes large. By default, if no category is selected, your post will appear under the Member Corner portion of the website.
  • There is a nice tutorial on the WordPress website that discusses creating and publishing posts.
