Hi! This website runs on WordPress.com. To start creating posts here, follow the steps below.
(Watch this video for a quick overview, and read the step-by-step instructions below.)
1. Signup for a WordPress.com account
If you don’t have a WordPress.com account, click here to create one (if you already have one, skip to Step 2).
Enter your email, choose a username/password, then check your email. Click the button in the message from WordPress.com to verify your account.
2. Accept the Invitation to be an Editor
Jeff will invite you to be an Editor for http://www.stpaulumcfremont.org. Find the invitation email and click the Accept Invitation button inside.
3. Go to ‘My Sites’ > Blog Posts
Once you’re an Editor, log into wordpress.com and click My Sites in the top-left corner.
- To create a new post, click the Blog Posts > Add button on the left.
- To view existing posts, just click Blog Posts (not the Add button).
4. Create a New Post
4a. First add a title, then add text to your post.
4b. Add files (i.e. PDFs or PPTs) or photos to your post.
To upload a file or photo to your post (you can also add a “Click here to download” link), follow these steps:
First, click the Add Media button at the top of the page.
Then, click the Add New button.
Next, select the files or photos from your computer and click Open.
Finally, click Insert.
You should now have a working download link to the file. To edit the link text, click the link and the pencil icon.
4d. Add a Category
Categories are a way to group related posts together. To assign a category to your post, click the Categories & Tags section on the left, and the section will expand. The default category is ‘Announcements’. If you are posting Sermon Notes, Newsletters, or other types of materials, select the corresponding Category.
5. Click Publish
When you’re done writing your post, click Publish on the left.
6. Review your post
To see your post, visit the site homepage. Depending on which Category you chose, your post will appear when you click one of the blue buttons (Sermon Notes, Newsletters, Recent Announcements, or Pastor’s Blog)
