It’s now very easy for any CCP member to write something for the CCP website. It can be about:
- Book reviews, poetry, or news (which can be read by anyone visiting the website), or
- Messages, research or event announcements (which are password-protected, and intended for CCP members only).
To start, just scroll right down to the bottom of any page on the website, and click on the “WordPress Admin” link. This will take you to…
… the WordPress login screen (click the image on the left to see it full-size). Here you’ll need to type in “member” (without the quotes) as your username, and the usual password (p******4 as for the Community page). Then click the Log In button, which will take you to…
… the WordPress Dashboard screen (again click on the left to see it full-size). Since you want to add what WordPress calls a “post”, just click Posts (near the top left) to go to the Posts screen, and then in the Posts screen click Add New (under Posts near the top left). This will take you to…
… the Add New Post screen. Here you can type in the title of your post, and then in the editing box underneath (below the formatting buttons – B for bold, I for italic and so on) you can type what you want to say. You can also upload and insert images etc. with the small buttons above the editing box.
When you’ve finished, click the relevant box under Categories on the right to indicate where on the website you want your post to be displayed, and then click Publish. That’s it – you can now see your post on the CCP website! And you can always go back and edit it further, then just click Update to save the changes.
If your post is an announcement about a forthcoming event, you’ll find you can’t just click the Events category. Instead you’ll need to scroll down to the bottom of the Add New Post (or Edit Post) page, and click the “+” button in the bottom left of the Event Editor box to add dates and times for your event.
And to log out at the end, just click “Howdy, CCP member” at the top right of the screen, then click Log Out.
