Add New Post

Your need/event post will need 4 main things: a title, content, categories, and linked buttons. Below is an example of what the Add New Post page looks like.

The main column has the following content areas:

  • Title — Give your post a descriptive title that will get attention.
  • Content — Give the details and description of your need or event. Make sure to include the necessary contact info.
  • Add Linked Buttons — Enter the http:// address in the blank to have the button appear at the top of your post. Use as many as appropriate.

The column on the right has checkboxes for the following:

  • Categories — Church / Organization (Choose ONE); Need / Event (Choose ONE)
  • Focus — Do you need volunteers, donated items, and is the need urgent? Do you have job/internship openings? (Choose all that apply)
  • Paricipant — The age of the people you want to volunteer or to attend your event (Choose all that apply)
  • People Served — The types of people your need or event is hoping to serve (Choose all that apply)
  • Related Interests — The areas of interest that are related to your need or event (Choose all that apply)
  • Topics — The topics related to your need or event (Choose all that apply)
