List Post with Images : Like a list on steroids
A few of “my favorite Canadian things”
1 : Lake Louise
All that’s missing is a mountie in a red canoe serenading some damsel
2 : Emerald Lake, BC
We had to buy the red plaid jackets!
Emerald Lake canoe rental and souvenirs
3: Alouette Lake, Maple Ridge
How many places, close to a major world-class city, have this in their backyard?
Alouette Lake at the southern limit of the Great Bear Rainforest
A List is another form of content container besides the paragraph, it’s the outline view
Some people just want the Outline View of what you are blogging about. Just the list items please with any excess verbiage or chit-chat.
Lists in WordPress can be as simple as using the New Post editor List icons
- My first point or Bulleted List item #1
- Another PowerPoint bullet i’d like to make
- My final point
Step-by-step or “top-ten” list
- Make this list
- Check it every day
- Clean out all the accomplished or forsaken items
This can be a list of links to follow, which is another way of saying a “navigation menu”
Image alignment is how the image fits in with the text
In its simplest form, we begin with a simple paragraph and then insert an image in one of the two main ways, either left or right align. Make sure you have at least a few lines of text before the first image! Then Insert the image. The idea is to have some layout variety. If the text is extended, it then goes on to the next line under the picture as is shown here.
Here is a new paragraph, so now we insert the image on the right side.The rest of the text then appears on the left side of the image as is shown here. A theme like twenty-ten works better with its wider main-content area.
Left-Align and Right-Align buttons are the key!
Note in the image below how the right-align button is operated for the right-align image, and vice versa!
Windows Live Writer is the MS answer to BlogPad Pro ( iPad ) and OffLine Blogging
The “Editor” is pure Microsoft and very easy to use, exactly what you would expect considering their resources
These comments were then added in to the “draft” version appearing within the WordPress Dashboard > Posts
Home Tab > Publish area >Post Draft To Blog > WordPress 101
When you open the blog you selected, you find a draft version of the post along with your existing posts. Make any last minute edits within the WordPress Editor, then Publish from within WordPress!
Suburbia Theme with 3 column Page and widget sidebar
Suburbia theme 3-column “Page” with SideBar widgets
- SideBar “text” widget for author comments about the page
- Heading Levels used to add a version of “gray bar” bullet points
- Image widgets used to provide link to Main WordPress site
- and a link to the “Mothership” HTML/CSS Website that started it all
There’s no reason to feel tethered to a desktop PC to blog or add content to your WordPress site presence. Whether you are on the road in the south of France or commuting by train, you can use the offline time to add content to your blog/WordPress then “sync” your presence when you’re back in Wi-Fi range
iPad has BlogPad Pro and Windows has Windows Live Writer
My Windows 7 desktop and Windows 8 laptop both use “Windows Live Writer” which is a free download that is part of “Windows Essentials” free download.
The point is to make blogging as easy as possible, whatever the operating system, hardware platform, off-line or connected to wi-fi.
Use an iPad while traveling away from wifi
Then, when you have wifi access, sync to the WordPress Mothership
Offline Posts: While on a roadtrip or vacation
Diana travels a lot, likes to blog about it, and has an iPad. This is what led me to first explore the options for Offline Blogging
iPad App that lets you work offline, sync later
If you’re travelling in the south of France, you may not find WiFi around every corner. This is where the iPad BlogPad Pro app comes in.
Work in Airplane Mode then “sync” your content when online
You can even download posts to your iPad prior to leaving on a wifi-less trip, edit them and then “sync” the changes to the WordPress Mothership
