After logging in, you’ll find yourself on the WordPress dashboard. To start a new post, navigate to “Posts” in the left-hand menu and click “Add New.” The screenshot above will guide you through. The WPBakery Page Builder is an available editor but the website also offers a way to edit using a backend editor or edit live while viewing the preview.
Insert the images into your post by clicking on the (Add Media) toggle. Upload an image using Media Library. Upon logging in to the dashboard, the left side would have a Media option where you must click on Library. You’ll have an option to upload media here. Once you have selected the image, select the appropriate media category on the right side of the page.
While videos should not be directly uploaded to Aesdes.org, you can showcase your video content by sharing links from your Vimeo or YouTube account. To do this, go to your video on Vimeo/YouTube, copy the link to the video and put it up in the post.
Both of these steps are required for you to get credit for your post.
A featured image is presented full size at the top of your post and appears as a thumbnail in lists of posts. Scroll down on the post editing section of the page to find the “Featured Image” option. Click on “Set featured image” to upload an image that represents your post.
Categories help organize posts and makes it easier to find. Select the category appropriate for the assignment. Only use existing categories. Do not create new ones. Locate the “Categories” section on the right side of the post editing page & check the relevant categories.
- Preview Your Post: Before hitting that “Publish” button, it’s a good idea to preview your post using the “Preview” button located in the upper-right corner of the page. This allows you to see how your post will appear to others.
- Publish Your Post: Aesdes.org allows you to save posts as drafts before publishing. Once you’re satisfied with your post, click the “Publish” button. Your post will be live on Asides.org for others to see and engage with.
