Your First Post

So you want to write a post eh? Great! It’s simple  and rewarding. Just a few things you have to know. This page is a work in progress; expect changes and updates.
  1. You have to have an account and be logged in to write a post. See our User Policy and User Roles and Writing Posts page.
  2. All posts automatically go only on the news & discussion page and at the top of the page, so you don’t have to worry about where to put it. That is all taken care of for you.
  3. After you login, click on the “+New” link at the top of the page, (or select “Post” under that menu) and it will bring up a relatively easy to use WYSIWYG editor. You can save a draft and come back to it later, preview it, and when you’re done, click “Publish” and that’s it. You should however select a category which is either “news”, “petition news” or “uncategorized”.
  4. Once you’ve posted it you can go view it, and edit it if you so wish. To Delete a post is to Trash it.
  5. From the “Dashboard” screen you can also use the “QuickPress” option at the top right side of the screen to simply type in a title and message and post it without the editor with the bells and  whistles.
  6. Media refers to pictures- if you are an “Author” or above you can upload pictures to include in your posts. Takes a little practice to get them where want them, but it’s not too hard.
