Posting news is easy way to communicate with Friends near and far. It is a way to start up a conversation, a way to share ideas, a way to crow a little about your successes. A committee meets and has an unresolved issue: post this information. The children have just returned from an outing where a weasel was spotted: post this – perhaps getting the children involved.
Alternatively look for a button at the very top of the page called ‘New Post’ and click this. In either case you will bring up a screen titled ‘Add New Post’.
Enter a title for the post. Then click in the editor window and start typing your message. On the top of the editing window are two tabs: ‘visual’ and ‘html.’ The easiest way to enter and format your post is to use the ‘visual’ editor.
This divides your post into two pieces: the teaser (on the top) and the body (rest of the post.) This formatting reduces the size of your main page and allows the user to see more posts close to the top.
See the comments below for more pointers.
