First Post? No Problem!

It’s very easy to add a sale or special, a blog post, a business news item, or anything else that is relevant. Here’s how.

 

1. Request Login Credentials

If you don’t already have a username and password for the site, click here to request one, or just call the Chamber.

 

2. Log In

Click this link to log in: http://holdenvillechamber.com/wp-admin

Enter your credentials.

 

3. Start New Post

  • Click “Posts”.
  • Click “Add New”.

 

4. Complete Your Post

Follow these steps to complete your post:

  • Give it a short, descriptive title.
  • The word processing area is where you write the main body of the post.
  • Select a category.
  • Under “Tags”, click “Choose from the most used tags”, then click any relevant words. If nothing is relevant you may add your own, but it is not needed.
  • If your post needs an expiration date—e.g. a limited-time sale—under “Post Expirator” tick the “Enable Post Expiration” box, then set the expiration date.
  • Click “Set featured image”. This can be a picture of your business, a graphic you’ve designed, stock photography, or one of our images for sales or drawings.
    • If you want to choose our sale or drawings image, or an image you’ve already uploaded, choose it from the Media Library.
    • If you want to upload a new image, click “Upload Files”, “Select Files”, then browse to your image and upload it. Wait for it to upload, then click “Set featured image”.
  • Scroll back up to the “Publish” section and submit your post.

 

Tips for a Great-Looking Post

  • Featured images will look best and load faster when shrunk and cropped to 655×368 pixels.
  • Other images can be added using the “Add Media” button.
  • Use headers for different sections if your post is long. You can choose from several different header sizes in the dropdown menu at the top of the main post area.
  • Preview your work at any time during the process by clicking the “Preview” button under the “Publish” section.
