To create a new diary entry (blog post) Log In to the site (the login link is at the right of the footer on every page), click on the New menu and select Post (or follow this Add New Post link).
Before you start editing your Post:
- make sure you give your post a Title
- in the Categories box to the right of the edit area check the category for diary entry you are creating: Community, now , etc.
Now you can edit your page: use the edit styling icons on the toolbar in much the same way you would use Microsoft Word (heading styles are available under the drop down list currently set to Paragraph).
Remember to regularly Save a Draft copy (button upper right) which will save you changes back to the server but does not yet make the page publicly available. At any time you can use the Preview button (top right) to view the page.
If you go wrong and want to abandon your changes just click in the View Page on the black dashboard menu bar (top of screen) and click on the Leave Page in the button when you are warned you have unsaved edits.
When you ready use the Publish button upper right of the page to make the post publicly visible. Until you publish your post no one will be able to see it. When it is published you may want to let everyone know by asking for a post on Twitter or Facebook using our Contact Form.
Your new diary entry will automatically be the latest post for the Community or Parish Hall newsletter navigation boxes.
