Contribute to the front page

Discussion in 'Website updates' started by Chris, Nov 8, 2014.

  1. After having a our conversation regarding the front page (and at some requests from @IainK ). We have decided to open the front page to allow users to post onto the front page

    We are looking for guest posters for the following type of posts:
    1. Product reviews:
    2. Blogs
    3. How to guides
    4. Fun photography stories

    The process is simple:

    • Register for the front page. Admin will have to approve you first.
    • Write and design your page
    • All posts will be moderated by the admin guys here and will approve and publish your stories and push it to social networks.
    Registration
    Here's how to register:

    If you want to re-login again, you can do so here: http://www.pixelatedphotographer.com/wp-login.php

    In the next few days I'll make a 'how to post video' and will post it below.

    If anyone has problems please let me know in this thread.

    Cheers,
    Chris

  5. Thanks Iain, I also heard of some other issues too. I'll bug fix em today. Cheers for letting me know
     
  6. All registration pages are now all working and tested. @IainK I have accepted your account, you don't need to do any more.

    @Ade profile pic is now working again
     
  7. Ah, that seems ok to me now. I've got a vague idea to try to get something written every two weeks or so, but we'll see how it goes.
     
  8. @Chris, thanks. Almost sorted. Please can you set my first Flash with Film post back to my profile rather than yours? Photo and bio on profile works great.
     
  9. Will do! I didn't change these manually so I think I may have to check all the articles
     
  10. I've got a couple of things written, I'll submit the first just now.
     
  11. @Chris, obviously I'm missing something, but how do I add a header image to articles?
     
  12. I'll make a video on the weekend but the short answer is to use the 'featured image' box on the left
     
  13. Sorry just on my phone at the moment, can't send a screenshot
     
  14. I'll await the video, I'm still not seeing it. Clearly, I'm an idiot.
     
  15. @IainK when I am drafting posts it is on the right hand side but you need to scroll down to see it. I did have an issue at first though where I couldn't load any media so it was greyed out.
     
  16. I'm still not seeing it. Can someone post a screen grab or suchlike?

    SO it turns out a 'contributor' cannot contribute to images ( really ******* stupid if you ask me! @IainK

    Anyway, I have now fixed that and made the video I promised. Hope this helps!

     
  18. Ah! Wasn't being an idiot. Awesome. I've uploaded a picture now for your approval/rejection pleasure.
     
  19. As I'm quite bored, I found a video of Chris talking Japanese in a welsh accent. Which is awesome.
