How to Add/Update a Post

General

If you start a new topic or want your information to stand out, you should create a new post. Even though you can add your information in the comment area, comments are not normally shown nor categorized. Comments are visible only by clicking that particular post.

Editor

Adding a new post is easy if you have Editor or above status. Log into the website. Then click the “Add New” link in “Post” section in the upper left hand area. Then you can type in your post title in the Permalink area. You can either type your post in the post section or you can copy your content from some other source such as Word. If you do paste from Word, please click on the “Show/Hide Kitchen Sink” button as shown below.

You can also add pictures and other media type to your post by clicking on the links in the “Upload/Insert” toolbar above the post area.

In case you do not have enough time to finish your post, you can save the current post as Draft so you can come back to finish it.
