VCTR GUIDE: Creating & Managing Posts

How to get your post noticed where it needs to be noticed.

Overview

We use posts heavily on this site in order to make it easier for team and community members to add and manage content.  Adding posts is pretty easy. Here is what is most important.

  • Always create both a Title and Excerpt.
  • Always select 1-2 categories.
  • Almost always add a feature image.

Categories

These are critical. We use categories and welcoming pages to control where posts show up.

  • If you want a post to show up on one or more of our main news pages, be sure to select at least one category within COMMUNITY NEWS and BRPC NEWS.
  • If you do NOT want a post to show up in these pages, be sure to select a category under INTERNAL OR CONTROLLED USE.
    • TIP: If you want to save a post without any risk of it showing up, select “Reserve”. It will only show up on your “My Posts” list.
  • Do NOT check too many categories.  1-2 is generally enough.

Welcoming Pages

Welcoming Pages consolidate information on a specific topic (e.g., shools, workplaces).  We have not yet deployed Welcoming Pages.  When we do, these will function much like categories.  Check these IF appropriate.

Images

Here are three great sources for royalty-free images.

Adding images is as easy as 1-2-3:

  1. Find an image and download it.  Include the artist name in the file name.  [Or you can select images from our library of previous uploads.]
  2. Upload it to your post.
  3. Credit the artist at the bottom of your post.

Other Tips

  • Publish Dates and Archive Dates allow you to control when a post is made public and removed from public view.
  • If you want to keep a post “permanently” set an archive date of January 1, 2025.  We will use this for future reviews.
  • Terms aren’t used much, but you are welcome to add them.

Sample Post Styles

The following is just to show you what different styles look like on our site.   Never use Header 1.  This has a special purpose.  Within a post, we usually use Header 4 and 5.  2 and 3 can look like shouting.

Siljoy Maurer

Holistic Perspectives P.O. Box 333, Enka, NC 2872  Phone: (828) 333-0103  | siljoy@me.com or  www.HolisticPerspectives.com For many years now I have been mentoring men and women from all walks of life. It continues to be my greatest joy to accompany someone from “just being ok” into thriving! As a Mentor & Healer I partner with my clients in creating authenticity, wellness and deep contentment, in whatever area of their lives they are seeking change. The combination of giving very practical, livable tools for direct “next steps” while “holding the big picture” and then manifesting that big picture often feels like this: a new client brings me their life or life situation in a jigsaw puzzle box, they lost the lid and forgot what the picture on it looked like. I am good at knowing that picture and then guiding my clients/mentees to put all the puzzle pieces together.
