- Creating a new post
After logging in, you can easily create a new post by clicking the “plus” icon on the top left of the screen. Dismiss any messages from the administrators at the top and enter a title, followed by your content. When you are ready to post, scroll down to (optionally) categorize your post. If left unchecked, the default group is “uncategorized.” If you directly quote an article, please provide the link to the original or at least cite the source. After you complete your post, click the blue “Publish” button, and your post will become public.
- Registering for the site
To sign up and be able to post and fully contribute to the site, you must register by clicking “Register” at the very top of your screen. Your username will be what you use to log in and will remain private. Your “Name,” under “Profile Details,” is what will be seen when you post or comment. This preference can be changed easily after registering. Your email and personal information will not be shared with anyone unless you specifically allow so in your settings. After entering the CAPTCHA Code, click “Complete Sign Up” and you should receive an activation link via the email address you used. Once you click the link from that email, you are fully registered. If you do not receive the activation email, please contact an Administrator via our “Contact Us” page and we will fix the issue.
- Your Personal Dashboard
To access your personal Dashboard page and edit your settings, click the “Gauge” icon at the top left of your page. Please note: in order for this icon to be visible, you must first register AND log in. From there, you can use the drop down menu on the left to view previous posts and comments. To change your privacy settings, the way your pages are displayed, etc., click on your name in the upper right of your screen. From there, you can change the name you want displayed on posts and comments.
- Returning to the main site
You can return to the main site at any time from your personal Dashboard page by clicking the “House” icon at the top left of the page.
