Creating a Post
In order to post material to the site, you need to "create content". This page lists the types of content available to you. Please read the descriptions carefully as different types are preset to do different things.
Once you have selected your content type, you will be presented with a set of fields to fill in. Some fields are 'plain text' which means that the field will be formatted once you "submit" the page. Other fields utilize a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor. This allows you to enter content in much the same way you would type into a word document.
Note: pasting from MS Word is a bad idea because Word and web pages do not play well together. If you do this, and the formatting seems strange, select your text and click the button that looks like a paintbrush. This cleans up the formatting, at least mostly. You may use the buttons at the top of the editor to make text bold, etc. Be sure to use the drop down which says "paragraph" to apply consistent styles (heading 2, heading 3, etc.) This helps content look consistent across the site.
Below are a few special tip pages for embedding unique content. If you have trouble, be sure to click the "?" near the field as it may have helpful information specific to that field type.
