Blog Contributors

Members of CPS may become Contributors to submit articles for publication in the Blog.  You can become a contributor either through receiving an invitation or by emailing a request to Murray Foote (zenophon@velocitynet.com.au) or by leaving a request in a comment to this post.

Posts by contributors are moderated before posting, so that images can be a constant area.  Otherwise if you add a default-sized image, portrait sized images will be huge and landscape sized panoramas will be tiny.  It’s complicated to do this so I offer to do it for you.

  • Alternatively, you may prefer to size your images to on-page size when exporting (eg from Lightroom) or I can send you a link to show you how I do it.  In this case, you can be an author who posts directly, but you have to request this..

I also suggest a margin to images to help them stand out.  That’s easy enough to do but I can do that for you too.  Black is the default but I can make them white or leave it as no border if you prefer.

Follow the instructions when you receive the invitation:

  1. Click to sign up for a WordPress account
    • This takes you to a blank WordPress page
    • Click Log In at top left
    • Click Register at bottom left
    • If you only want a username and not a new blog, click [sign up for just a username] at bottom right….
    • You will then receive an email and need to activate your account
  2. Click to Accept Invitation
    • This takes you to the Blog’s Dashboard screen, where you can Add a new Post using a menu item at the left
    • Alternatively, you may come in at the main page of the Blog.
        • There should be a black bar at the top and an item “My Sites” at the far left of that
        • Hold your mouse over “My Sites” and a menu should appear, allowing you to add a Blog post.

        • When I tried this using another email address, it didn’t work the first day (no menu bar with items) but did when I tried the second
          • Not sure what happened but a little patience may be in order….
