Articles are built from text entered into different fields under a series of tabs - you can find the tabs and their respective fields below. Some are mandatory to fill out before you can save your article. These are denoted with ‘*’.  We recommend that you save your article regularly. The different fields to fill are.:

Main:

  1. Full Title* / Short Title*: The 'Full Title' is the full title that will appear on your article's page. The 'Short Title' will be how your article is shown in previews around the site, and you may prefer to keep this shorter than the Full Title.

  2. Short description*: Supply a short description, which will be how your content is shown around the site. Recommended length is 90 - 110 characters.

  3. Contributors*: Start typing the contributors first or last name to search for them. If they are a weADAPT member then you will have the option to select them as a contributor. If none of the contributors are on weADAPT, list yourself as a contributor. Feel free to share the link of the published article to invite the authors to register on weADAPT so you can add them later as contributors. Click "Add another" to add multiple contributors. You can add multiple Contributors.

  4. Participating/Implementing organisations: Start typing the participating/implementing organisation’s name to search for them. If they are registered onweADAPT then you will have the option to select them as a contributing organisation. Click "Add another" to add multiple organisations.

  2. Main Image (optional): Upload a full size image to accompany your content. The image should be under 3MB. Allowed file types are png, gif, jpg, jpeg. Once uploaded, you will have to add a short alternate text describing the image. Please also provide a descriptive image caption, and provide photographer/copyright credits if required. Once your content is published readers can click on the main image to make it expand, so this is a good place to add detailed figures/images.

  3. Video (optional): Add a video from Youtube. Please also provide a descriptive video caption (video URL and Description).

You can also add additional images to the main body of the article.

  4. You can add images and links to the section.

  5. To embed videos, slideshows or other external content on the page, see Embedding Content.

  6. Depending on the text that you have inputted, the system will identify and suggest some relevant keywordsYou should ideally choose keywords from our keyword list. To do so, use the ‘Keywords’ field on the right margin: start typing and possible keywords you are looking for will appear.
