Tips (1) – Visual or HTML

  • The body section has two tabs – visual and HTML. Always edit in Visual (the default tab). You only need to use the HTML tab if you are pasting something in from another source (i.e., from Word, Pages, or other websites). Paste it into the HTML side and then switch back to Visual to edit it.

Tips (2) – Post Time Stamp

  • Yours posts will show up in reverse order – the most recent post will be on the top. If you want a different order, you can trick the program by changing the date/time stamp on the post. Go to your list of posts, hover over the one you want to change, and click Quick Edit. Change the time as needed to reorder your post. You will probably only need to do this for your Overview tab.
