Brief instructions for posting onto this site

Members of SWOP are welcome, and encouraged, to post onto this site – if you don’t already have access, please contact JA Condie for information.

In order to post you must Login first. Then, go to the Dashboard, choose Posts then Add New – you can also click the new post button at the top right of the screen. Remember to give your new post a title then enter your text into the main text-box.

Adding Media
Pictures, documents, videos, tweets, etc. can be added to your post by clicking the Add Media button on the tool bar.

Hyperlinks
Use the link icon in the toolbar to add hyperlinks to you posts. When adding links, especially to external sites, please be sure to tick the option that will Open link in a new window/tab’. We don’t want users to be accidently whisked away from our site!

Categories & Tags
This site uses a system of Categories to funnel and direct posts into specific subject areas. Please do not create categories of your own (they will just be deleted by the Admin). Open the Categories & Tags menu to the left of the New Post screen and choose a relevant category from the options available:

  • Education – Learn more about working with Official Publications
  • Events – Information on upcoming SWOP meetings, training and other OP occasions
  • Publications/Resources – Official Publications news and updates – including digital resources
  • SWOP – SWOP meetings, news and other business

All posts, including Uncategorized, will also appear under the News tab.

Tags can be used to index a post – this provides a link between similar posts and also allows simple searches to be conducted via the Tag Cloud in the sidebar. Open the Categories & Tags menu to the left of the New Post screen and either choose your Tags from the list of options already available, or enter new tags of your own.

Twitter
Check the Sharing menu to the left of the New Post screen. Be sure the option to share with @SWOPforum  on Twitter is selected.

Posting
When you’re ready, click the Update button on the left of the screen. Your post will publish immediately. You may edit the post as required.

 

Please contact JA Condie if you have any questions. Training on using this site may also be available
