How to Post on the Architecture for Refugees Platform
New contributors to the Architecture for Refugees platform will need to register for a new account and be approved by moderators. To begin this process, locate the small triangular button in the top right corner of the page. Once your registration has been accepted, this will also be the place to log-in.
We will confirm your registration within 24 hours. If it has been more than 24 hours and you have not received registration confirmation, please check your spam folder and then contact AfR via Facebook message or e-mail.
Writing and Editing Posts
Once you have logged in, click the triangular button again and click the link reading “Dashboard”. In the left-hand column, find and click the link reading “Posts”. This will take you to the main post writing and editing section. Only your posts will be visible to you.
Adding a New Post
Click the “Add New” button next to the “Posts” heading. Add text into the post (see “Guidelines for All Posts”, below). When finished, click the blue “Publish” button. If you need to save your work for later, click “Save Draft”.
Guidelines for All Posts
Posts should include a descriptive title.
Posts, including those linking to external pages, should include text describing the content of the link.
In the Categories menu to the right of the post editing window, select at least one relevant category.
Add “Architecture for Refugees” under the Tags menu
Add additional relevant keywords under the Tags menu
Select a “Featured Image”, which will be the post’s cover image. For instructions on uploading images, see below.
If the post is related to a particular location, scroll down to the map and select a location (either through the map window or by entering coordinates).
Uploading Images in Posts
Images and files can be uploaded using the “Add Media” button just above the text entry field. To add new images, click the “Upload Files” tab and drag a file onto the window. To use existing images, select them from the “Media Library” tab. Select the image you would like to use and click the “Insert Into Post” button.
Editing an Existing Post
From the “Posts” menu, click the title of the post you would like to edit. Only your posts will be visible to you. Make edits to the original post and either click “Preview Changes” to the right or the blue “Update” button just below. You can also view past changes using the “Revisions” line or delete the post by clicking “Move to Bin”.
