Enter details and publish your article

Step 5: Enter the article details as highlighted below. Please make sure you have entered the following details: (Note that you can change any of these details after you publish, or even ask the Webmaster to help if you have difficulties.)

Title: A short title. Please note long titles don’t look too good if they publish over multiple lines.

Content: You may enter your content in Visual or Text mode. Visual is easier, but if you know HTML you can do Text mode. Visual should be selected by default. Note that links can be used in Visual mode by highlighting the words you want to link and then clicking the link icon.

Categories: This step is VERY IMPORTANT and easily forgotten. It determines which categories your post will be logged against. Available Categories may be found on the right hand column if you scroll down. At a minimum you should select the Notices category, but you may select multiple categories as appropriate for your post.

Publish: Click the publish button when you are done. So you don’t lose work, click the ‘Save Draft’ button often. Once you click the Publish button, you will be able to make changes and save revised versions by clicking the ‘Update’ button.
