Art Blog!

The Art Blog is up and functional!  Holst, you’ll need to set up a new account there but it can be the same info as here.  Soq’s already done so.  I also upgraded you both here from Authors to Editors because there’s more options that way. The next step is Admin which has too many things to play with.


For the art blog, I tried to set it up as easy as possible but its taken some fiddling to figure things out. There are a few things you should make sure to do if you upload a picture.


As soon as you upload the image, a bigger option box will appear. These are the things you need to do:


Caption = This is optional but in my fiddling around with things this seems to be the easiest way to insert text without it becoming a huge hassle, especially if you’re adding multiple images.


Click the button that says FILE URL. This is important. This will let us click on the image to open a full version.


Align = Center.


Size = Thumbnail. This way the full size doesn’t stretch the frames.


When you’re done click Insert into post.


Back in the post editing area if you want to add any more descriptions (such as who the art is by) feel free to do so.  On the side there is a box called Categories.  Check the appropriate boxes (like Azrun if the image includes that little fox) and add more categories if you feel the need to do so. (You should be able to with your new permissions.)


Then publish! Yay!



Meanwhile, I’m still working on figuring out how to make it display who the author of the post is and if we can include an icon with that.


ETA: Done! Except for the icon bit which might be a bit trickier and harder to integrate with the look of the whole shebang.
