If you’re a cre8tives site member and would like to share your news updates (promoting your work, events, latest releases, etc) we would love to publish your content on our members stories page!
It’s super easy…
- in your WordPress dashboard, go to Posts and write something new
- click the category box called “share to cre8tives” on the right hand side
- we’ll do the rest!
We’ll automatically get notified once you’ve updated your site. So if you normally add your post to a “blog” or “news” category, all you have to do is also click the new “share to cre8tives” category to share your news on our site!
Tips for Formatting Your News
Here are a few tips that will make your content stand out on our site:
- Use a Featured Image
- Make sure to upload an avatar to your cre8tives profile
- Add a two line bio to your cre8tives profile
For the featured image, you should see that box below your categories on the right-hand side of your post editor. It’s always best to use large images. (If your theme doesn’t support featured images, we may add something generic to the post as a placeholder.)
If you don’t have a lot of spare images lying around, one way to find something cool in just seconds is with the ImageInject plugin. (cre8tives site members can activate this in their plugins.) It puts an image search box below your posts which allows you to find free creative commons images for your site!
The reason for having an avatar and bio in your cre8tives account is that when your post is published on our site, your photo and bio will appear below the article. So unless you want to look like “generic avatar man”, upload a photo and write a short bio. Of course, if you add your website link to your profile, that helps too!
