Becoming a member is easy. Just click “Join” under “Members” in the menu. Fill in your details and click “Register”. Since e-mail activation is required, check your inbox and click the link. Once your e-mail has been confirmed, you can log in by clicking “Log In/Out” under “Members”.
Done! Now you’re all set to start posting.
Click “Add new post”* under “Members” in the menu. Choose your desired title, upload an image or paste the link to a video into the Content field and maybe write a few lines about what it is your post is all about.
If you want to insert an image from an outside source, choose “Insert from URL” on the left after clicking “Add Media”. Lastly choose a category, then click “Submit”.
If a video isn’t used in the post, an image must be either uploaded or linked into the post because the system needs somewhere to take a featured thumbnail to publish on the front page from. If more than one image, or video, is inserted into the post, the first media will be used as a featured thumbnail.
The editor is pretty basic. It’s based on WordPress and very similair to Microsoft Word. There is both a Visual (WYSIWYG) and Text mode.
Clicknews supports most of the big video sites such as Youtube and Vimeo. All that is required is a link and the system will automatically import a thumbnail of the video and put into the post and on the front page.
