How to add a new post?

Adding content is easy once you have registered with InspirationalParenting.com.  Here are step-by-step instructions on how to add your inspirational parenting content…

  1. Login to your InspirationalParenting.com Dashboard (remember that usernames are case sensitive).
  2. Click on the Posts section to expand it for more options.
  3. Click on the Add New button.  The Add New Post page will now load.
  4. Add your own title in the top field.  This can be anything you want but try to limit the length so it will display more easily. 
  5. Once you move to the main content window, the title will be saved and you will see that a Permalink now displays below the title.  This will be the link that references your post.  If you decide to change your title, you can also Edit the Permalink appropriately.
  6. Now you can add your content in the main window.  You will see  some limited text editing options on the tool bar directly above the content window.  If you are familiar with HTML, feel free to mark away by clicking the HTML tab on the top right.
  7. Once your content is added, just click the Submit for Review button on the right of the page.  This will place your content into a Pending state awaiting the review of a site admin.  Once reviewed, the content will be published on the site.
  8. If you don’t have time to write everything at once, you can simply click Save Draft and close the browser.  When you log back in, you will see your post in the list of available posts but it will be listed as a “Draft” rather than “Pending”.  DO NOT CLICK SUBMIT FOR REVIEW UNTIL YOU ARE READY FOR YOUR CONTENT TO BE PUBLISHED.
