Werd! Making it work!

MAKING IT WORK:  The only reason to follow these instructions are if you want to use fonts that are not supported by Scribefire.

     To follow up on my previous post, here are the instructions for how to make the whole thing work.  Well, due to some unforeseen aspects of this thing it turns out being a little more difficult that I thought at first.  Not in terms of actually doing it----but in terms of teaching it.

     So, here is the “simple” way to get the text and colors and all that stuff to work on your AR posts.  To make it simple, type your signature into a new blog post (you could do the same thing with a whole post but for now I am just interested in getting basic information on your post so that when you insert what you want later it will work as I described in my previous post). 

 

     Charles Buell (just use your name though).  You will also need to add at least two lines of information under your name.  If you look at any of my posts you will see I have a bunch of other stuff under my name.  For the purpose of this exercise lets put:

     Home Inspector,

     Seattle, WA

     Now, give the post a title like, “testing, testing---this is making me testy” (or whatever).

     Set the “draft” option and hit publish.

     Now open the post in “edit” and hit the “HTML” option.

     You should now see your name looking like: 

Charles Buell

Home Inspector

Seattle, WA

     Now take,

and insert the whole thing in before the first

like:

Charles Buell

     The next step is to “stop” the action requested by all the purple code, by inserting: 

after the

after Charles Buell.  This leaves the final thing looking like: 

Charles Buell

Home Inspector

Seattle, WA

 

     Now hit publish.  This published version of these three lines is what you will need to copy and paste into every new blog post.  When you copy and paste your Word document ahead of this coded information, you should end up with your blog post looking just like your Word document. (some times you have to hit “enter” several times to get enough room for the copied material to “fit” in ahead of  your signature-----like 4-6 times)

     I don’t want to see a lot of “Charles Buell” clones out there so please use your own name and have fun picking different font, size and colors.

 

     If you look at the purple code, you can see that it is “instructing” the text to do three things. 

     You can put pretty much use any “font family” in place of “book antique”-----that just happens to be the one I like.

You make it whatever color you want by changing the “rgb” code (This is the website I use to get my colors from).

The “font-size: large” can be changed to lots of different sizes, but common choices would be small, x-small, xx-small, medium, large, x-large, xx-large.  You will have to experiment with this.

 

Another side note is that after you publish the post in draft mode you will note there is “considerable “extraneous” HTML code and sometimes extra rows that you can go back in and delete.  It is always at the beginning and sometimes throughout the text---especially when pictures are present.  I have no idea why it does this but I do know that it seems safe to delete it.

If all of these instructions work----consider it a miracle!

A week or so ago, someone did a post about switching to Firefox for their Internet Browser. I wish I could remember who that was so that I could acknowledge them. I made the switch and it is awesome. Now I can compose my blogs… more
