Add a New Post

Each student will add one post for each assignment. One post can contain text, media, images, etc. Here are the main steps:

  1. Add your title and any text.
  2. Add any images or media.
  3. Assign the post to the proper categories.
  4. Set a featured image.
  5. Save!

Title Your Post

Title_Your_Post

Enter any text. If you are pasting in from Word or elsewhere, use the “paste as text” button so you don’t get weird formatting.
