New Quick Post Option

To all our WV UPCI bloggers / department leaders:

In order to make it easier for you to post the info your department(s) needs displayed, we have added new, easier posting options. You can now post directly from your department’s main page on the front-end. The new option is open both for department leaders and for our members who are writers that wish to contribute articles for potential publication on the district website. The screenshots below show the ease of the new options.

Screenshots:

For all departments (except Youth—see below), look for this “Quick Post” link near the top of your page:

For the Youth department, look for this “Quick Post” link near the top of your page:

What’s supposed to happen when it is clicked?

Note: You will need to choose the appropriate category/categories from the scrollable “Categories” list if you want to get your post to display in the correct spot on the district site.

If your post applies to more than one department or category, you can select more than one as needed. (To choose more than one category, hold the Shift key while clicking on additional categories.)

Again, you must choose a category from the scrollable list if you want to get your post to display in the correct spot on the district site.

Sincerely,

A Few Thoughts as We Unveil the New Site

Note: The following message was emailed to our subscriber list. We are posting it here for the benefit of those who have not yet either subscribed or registered.

Dear Friend of WV UPCI

Today we rolled our email subscriber list over from the old site to the new site. (You are receiving this email because you are a subscriber in that list.)

Check out the all-NEW www.wvupci.org! The site went “live” earlier this week. Although we still have some work to complete and some minor bugs to iron out, we’re off to a great start.

You’re already a subscriber, but wait… there’s more!

Please consider registering on the site. It’s free, fast, and easy. Why?

You will be going beyond just being an email subscriber. By registering you get a free upgrade from “public subscriber” to “contributor.” Plain old subscribers can receive emails and can post comments, but registered members (contributors) can do all that plus submit articles (for potentially being published on the site). Just click “register” in the right hand menu (near the top).

Also note that you can link your Facebook account and your WV UPCI account to each other, making your log-in’s hassle free.

(Examples of content for potential publishing would include revival testimonies, miracle testimonies, or praise reports from you or your church, event photos, etc. Post all your great testimonies under the “Reach WV” category. You can post conference reports under “All/District”, or Bible Quizzing results under “Quizzing”, etc.)

Simple steps to post your content:

  1. If not already registered, go to www.wvupci.org and click “Register” (upper right corner).
  2. Once you log in, you should see your “Dashboard” for the site.
  3. Point your mouse to “Reach WV” or some other appropriate category at the top, and click “Add New” in the dropdown menu.
  4. Type a title in the first box, and add your content in the second box.
  5. Click “Submit for Review” on the right side.

That’s it!

One note about event photos: If you want to post them, you would need to contact us at admin@wvupci.org and request to have your registered status as a “contributor” be upgraded to “author.” When you email us, let us know who you are, where you go to church, etc, and we will process your email as an application for upgrade.

If your status is upgraded, then thereafter a new set of upload/insert buttons will appear on the posting form, just above the buttons for Bold and Italic, etc. Simply click the first one of those, then browse to your photos, select them, and upload them. They will be uploaded and “attached” to that post (i.e. become part of its “Gallery”). Then simply “Save Changes”, and click “Insert Gallery” at the bottom, and click “Publish Article” on the right side.

Thanks for participating to make our district web site the best ever!

Sincerely,
Pastor Doug Joseph
Site Admin
