Writing a post on this site

Step 1: Get to the Post editor screen. Log in to the website and then click ‘+ new’ and ‘post’ in the header menu.

Step 2: Write your title. If the post is going to contain important information or fixture details, its a good idea to choose something bland to help people find the information, e.g. “National XC Relays – Mansfield – 2 November”.  If the post is a race report then you can use a more attention grabbing headline.

Step 3: Make sure you’re in the Visual View. If necessary click the ‘Visual’ tab at the right, above the window for writing your post content. You should see a screen with toolbars as in the picture below.
