How to create a post

We can create posts (I call files) on this site where we publish info about a tool, a device or any kind of home made stuff. With this info the guest should be able to make, have info about purchase and even directed if he or she wants to buy completely or just partly that stuff.

So, log in and click on the New-Post button on the top, or select from these templates:

Need this template

Create this based on video(s) template

Create this with detailed text template

Portfolio template

Member’s start page template

Product template

Work activity template

Who already used wordpress based site, that will handle it easily as this site also based on wordpress.

If you have troubles to begin, watch this video!

First steps

When we could start to use this site, please use the templates, to have the same schema like the other files. With these templates you also helped to take attention what should be written and what should you think about, when writing a file about creating a tool, device, making some household, gardening and so. Take care to overwrite every paragraph in the template!

When you are finished with the paragraphs, click on the “Save Draft” or “Send for approve” button. When you click on “Send for approve” you also let it to publish after the save. For those members who already have agreement, available a “Publish” button.

Very important to use the sidebar, where you can set Formats, Categories, Tags and Featured image. Mostly the categories should be selected correctly, the others are enough to leave on default value. So select that categories what you think is good for your file (Even if don’t find, select the more closed one and write to admin what you need!) what could be more than one (max. 3 enough). Why should be more than one? You think that you wanna create a mechanical tool for digging, so select “mechanical structure”, but someone else think that wanna use a tool in the garden so he is looking for this in Gardening in Green Energy.

So try to find 3 categories for your file like this: Recumbent building

  • Machine structure
    • Wheel drived
      • Manually
  • Transportation
    • Local
      • 1-2 persons
  • Sport
    • Outdoor
      • Bicycle

 

Upload from mobile

WPforAndroid_post-excerptSometimes it’s good to have the possibility to upload pictures from your mobile phone. It’s always in your pocket and the quality is nice also nowadays on new models. You need an internet connection and using the WordPress for Android application, you can easily upload pictures and notes. You have to create a new post, set pictures and upload it.

1. Click on the capture icon on left down.

2. Create you picture and save it or just select from your gallery.

3. Top right arrow click.

You can create a full file with this app, but I recommend the web browser for full access. At least check our post in a browser before send it to publish.

 

Professional editing

Let your kitchen sink available by clicking the this bottom shown on this picture.

Kitchen sink

Then you can see the Paragraph style selector, where you can select “Headings” to make you text more readable. These headings will be seen the TOC at the top of your file.

To show your TOC, write this code where you want to locate it:

plugin_nyittoc]

This will show in the post view your Table of Contents at the right side, and it won’t appear in excerpts.

You can make your own TOC or clickable picture with this kind of HTML code:

Header_link

The top red underlined row shows the original heading1, what should be modified to the next two rows. So give a name to this link, an id and than the original text. With this code the next link will jump there:

http://www.csimag.hu/?p=780#Ipari_robot_programozsa

So, you add the bookmark with this mark “#” after the post address.

 

Google album

Create a link on a text where the username and albumname points to a public google album. Here you can see how it looks like and how it works:

Google Maps

With this very easy and short plugin, you can put gps coordinates into your file and show that. Even allows for to show more coordinates from other files together collected by catalogs. I use it to show where to find us if someone interested in our tools, devices or other products.

The code is like this:

plugin_nyitgoogle-map-sc zoom=”8″]

where the zoom=”8″ argument is not obligatory, but good to see how easy to set the zoom view on the page.

Google_maps_beillesztesTo paste a gps coordinate, you have to click this bottom and write the coordinates what are connected directly to the edited post or page. So, you couldn’t see the coordinates in the short code. As much as you can, set in the application window and test with the Show Map bottom. In case if you couldn’t select your picture, but that uploaded, move that into the first 10 in “Gallery” tab.

Product into cart button

When we view a product, in the edit link an id number can be seen after the “?post=” text. This number has to be written into the shortcode below.

copy_tcpEasiest way is to open the sample product and copy. This button on the picture shows the copy function.

Clkick here to do this copy.

Take care to fill additional fields at the footer area!

TablePress

Sometimes we have to use big excel tables where calculations, part lists or price lists can be edited offline. In this case we should create a table on our site and upload there the Excel or OpenOffice calc tables. If  a price list uploaded, we should take care to inform guests about it and ask them to write order numbers in the order. With this solution we can manage quotations within an order. When we confirm the quotation, also give an updated price for all pieces and total.

We upload our tables with the help of TablePress.

TablePress

Easiest way is to save the table on our PC in .csv format (only one sheet) and upload that with the Import a Table button. When it’s done we can adjust the table if requested. Than insert the table into text with this short code:

plugin_nyittable id=N /]

TablePress arguments

These arguments overwrite the table settings.

Argument Task Example
id table id number 1
column_widths column widths  "'40px|50px|30px|40px'"

table_foot last row contain HTML tag true
print_name table name appears at printing true
print_name_position position of the above arg. 'above' vagy 'below'

Argument Task Example
id  table id number 1
field meta field name 'name'
'description'
