Editor

How to use the editor!

There are 3 important buttons.
1. ‘Add Media’ allows you to add a photo ( or anything) to where ever you’ve just clicked the cursor within the editor box. It’ll ask whether you want to upload the photo into the website or choose a photo that’s already there.ย  On the right side will be options about positioning the photo left right centreย  and also to insert the photo into your post/page.

2. Once the photo is there in the editor you can click it and icon 2 pops up. If you click this it allows you to change the position and size of the photo again.

3. Click this button to hide all the confusing buttons and start with a clear screen. Hover over the top of the screen to return back to the editor, or choose a camera style icon to insert a photo as above.

Photo sizes
The front page slider photos are 540×240 pixels 2.25:1 . They can be attached to a page or post as a featured image if you want a different photo to the first one on the page/post.

For a normal post if you upload a picture of 1024 wide and around 512 high ( they look better wide)
It will be reduced to 706×353 for display so you could begin with 700×350 or a standard 640×480
Once loaded the photo can be resized. Click the photo to bring up the pencil iconย  then click that to make it smaller
