WordPress will be changing to an easier process than it already is, until then .. This page (which will also be updated) should help in the process of adding your Article to Indie-Music.com.
Apologies to those who had not seen their posts published in the past. Write to me if you have any difficulties in the future.
We know everyone isn’t used to wordpress and we would like to add a shortcut with some very important details. Send us an email with your press release / announcement and a picture included. 1280w x 800h is ideal. Small pictures may not work.
The closer you can get to a cut and paste job, the more likely you’ll get published. HTML works great if you have it.
Please DO NOT send email to these addresses that is Not meant to be published. We get many emails from labels wanting us to listen to a “private” version, If we can’t let others hear it, we don’t want it sent to these 3 addresses. pressrelease@ and indie@ already get those.
REVIEW / ARTICLE
Copy Full Article Text (Title Included), Paste into Body of Article.
Then Cut and Paste Title from Article body box and paste into Title box.
Add links where needed:
Highlight the word to be altered and click on the icon above the text box with the picture of chains linked. add the URL location in the box that appears near your highlighted word. If the text you highlight starts with a URL address “http(s):\\” the highlighted link will autofill and you just need to hit “enter”, or alter as needed.
Obtain / Download “Featured Image” and others to be used:
Image sizes can be altered when uploading and even after if needed. We usually use 1280 x 800 pixel images for this site. Larger images (2000+ wide) may not appear even when they’re uploaded and “featured”. When this happens click ON the image, click “edit” image then crop and resize your image, click the “scale” button to execute. wordpress will tell you that the image has been “saved” in green letters above the page. (Make Sure to assign an Image as the “Featured Image” to see your story appear). Other images that you’d like to add within the story can be added by clicking the “add media” button above the article text. a link can also be added to the image.
Select “Standard Post” and Category, in this case, “Business News”
