Submitting an article
Note: Help is available in the upper right corner of each page.
Navigate to the “Posts” area on the Dashboard page and click on the “Posts” menu. This provides a list of posts (both old ones you’ve already published and others you have in various stages of composition) and their status. Create your new article by clicking on “Add New Post”.
Add the new article. Select its category to be a “Davis Bicycles! Column.”
Give your article a name, and compose it in the text box just below the format bar. NOTE THAT ARTICLES ARE STRICTLY LIMITED TO 600 WORDS. Please insure your article meets these restrictions. Word count of saved drafts are indicated in the lower left corner.
Photos and captions can be uploaded and edited in the media library just below the Posts menu. The Enterprise likes to run a photo with each column. If you have an interesting, relevant photo of high newspaper resolution, please supply this (or several to give the Enterprise a choice) with the article. If not or if it isn’t of sufficient quality the Enterprise will contact you to arrange for their photographer to take one. The Enterprise likes photos that are natural and action, not boring, static “snapshot” types.
Set a “more” tag so that only the first paragraph or so of the entire article will eventually appear in the blog roll.
If you haven’t completed your article and you’d like to return to it later, then save it as a draft.
If you have finished, then submit the article for review.
Editing a saved draft.
Log in and navigate to “Posts”. Then select the draft article (labeled as draft).
Edit the article, save as a draft or submit it for review.
After your article is complete and has been submitted for review, it will be read and edited by one or more of the column editors.
