The “Post Editor” screen

This is what the “Post Editor” screen looks like:

From this screen is where you will write most of the information that you would like to people to know. There is another type of screen called a “Page Editor,” but we are not going to worry about that right now.

The “Post Editor” is where you will express your opinions about current events, things that you have done, information that you find to be interesting at a specific point in time. Anything typed in here can be published and edited at will. In other words, nothing here is set in stone.

From the “Post Editor” you will be able to add text, video, images, and other forms of media such as embeds to make your information more alive. The “Post Editor” gives you the same common tools that a word processor or email does.

There are two settings for your “Post Editor” screen. The first is visual, the second is text. The visual option is WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get). This is the way that most of your formatting and inputting will be done.

But if you would like to embed a code (such as soundcloud.com music/audio link or an email capture) you will need to switch to the text tab. This screen will show you the basic coding that goes into creating your posts. Paste whatever the embed code is in here, then switch back to the visual tab. When you do so, there will be a big yellow block, that is fine. Finish writing your post and when you publish it, the yellow box will become the media that you wished to share.

Example: (Don’t worry, it is working)
