New Post

Tips for Posts:

Use a descriptive title, and keep it short. Search engines use this title to display your article in search results.

Use the editor to add content to your post. To ensure that the colors, fonts and style your content are consistent with rest of the site, please note:

  • Avoid changing fonts and font sizes. Use the built-in paragraph and heading styles.
  • The content you add will be automatically re-styled (colors, fonts, etc.) to match the rest of the website.
  • If you copy and paste text from another document, sometimes you will end up with formatting that you don’t want. To avoid this, use the “Paste as Text” button.
  • Be sure to check your post on the frontend of the site to ensure everything appears as expected.

Provide a short, one-paragraph summary of this post. The excerpt is often used as a replacement on the blog index and archives pages to avoid displaying the full content of each post.

Add a cover photo or graphic to accompany your post. Choose a good, high-resolution image.

  • Horizontal or square photos work best.
  • Images should be at least 1200 pixels wide.
  • For best quality, crop/adjust/resize the photo on your device before uploading.

Assign a category to your post. Choose an existing category whenever possible.

The categories you assign determine how your posts are sorted and filtered. They can also control where certain posts appear on this site. For example, choosing the “Members Only” category will only show a post to members who have logged on to the site.

Tags help further categorize content, so it’s easier for users to search for. They aren’t prominent on the frontend of the site, but are great for search engines. Add as many tags as you like.

The post date is not shown on this form, but it will be automatically set as the current date. If you need to change the post date, you can do so from the WordPress dashboard.

Sometimes the default WYSIWYG editor doesn’t provide enough flexibility to design a complicated layout.

This site uses the Elementor page builder. Any post you publish can be converted to an Elementor post with just one click. You can add text, images, buttons, forms, slideshows, video, spreadsheets and other interactive elements to your design.

Note: Only site Administrators can publish posts with Elementor
