Adding a Photo Bar
Just upload images using this tool when you are creating the post and copy paste this piece of code “[ photos _ bar ]” anywhere you want the photo bar to be shown. (NB: Remove all the spaces from the code to make it work, could show it any other way).
You can find this tool at the bottom of the page.
Choose a category that your blog post falls under
Step 7 (Optional)
Add some tags. Eg if its about an Aldij glider and F3F then add “aldij, F3F” as the tags.
Add a Featured Image. This is the main image for the article and is used across the website. The image needs to cropped and sized to 665 pixels x 150 pixels. This is very important. You can do this using Paint or any other picture editing software. You can find this item on the bottom right of the page.
Either save your draft or click PUBLISH if you are happy.
