ICI Blog Posting Instructions

 Step 1:

Go to www.indiachinainstitute.org

Step 2:

Click on the Log in/Log out menu, which is in the upper right-hand side of the page, and click Log in. Enter your username and password to login. If you do not have an account yet, please contact ICI to have one setup.

Step 3:

Once you have logged in, click the + New Post link at the top of the screen. This will take you to a new blank page where you can write your blog post.

Step 4:

Once you have created a new blank, enter a title for your blog post.  Try to keep the title short, ideally less than 8 words. Click the Save Draft button, not the Publish button. We will do that at the end. Once you have saved the draft post, you can continue writing. I suggest clicking the Save Draft button every few minutes just to be safe.

Important: From the category options on the right, select ‘Student Fellows 2017’ and ‘Blog’.  This will ensure your posts show up under the Student Fellows Blog on the homepage. Add any appropriate tags below this in the “tag” menu.  Save your draft again.

Step 5:

Once you have finished with your final draft, scroll down to the “Featured Image” box on the lower right side of the page. Click on Add Featured Image, and either browse to one of your uploaded images, or browse to where your saved picture is, select it, and upload it to the website. Once it is uploaded, select the Insert Featured Image option.  After a moment you should see a thumbnail of the image.

Step 6:

Once you have your post saved, your tags and categories selected, and an image added, you can click the Publish button. That’s it! If you need to make any changes, you can click the Edit button in the top menu, or on the top of any individual post page.
