Publishing Tool

Our main goal has always been to enable you to publish your ideas, and now it's easier than ever!

Write a post

In the "Publish" tab, discover how simple it is to publish any piece of content.

You can post either a text, a video, a picture, a link, an audio section, a quote or a place: just click on the related button. Then rearrange the sections the way you want, it's just like a puzzle!

You can also create your own photo album: in the image section, upload a group of photos, then choose the cover and the way you want them to be displayed within the post.

So let's see how to use the our slick Publishing Tool, icon by icon.

if you want to show us a map or add a location, this is the right module.

Settings

Now, you can easily preview or publish your post/page, and even chose the date of publication.

You can also automatically share your posts on Facebook or Twitter, and enable/disable comments for each post.

Using the tags, you are now able to categorize your posts, and organize your blog properly!

TIPS:

  • A new section will always appear at the bottom of your draft. Simply drag it upwards if you want to rearrange the order of the existing sections.

  • As you create your post, remember to frequently "save as draft" by clicking the button in the top right corner menu (the orange one).
