Importing: Content Tab
- In the Content tab, verify/edit the imported Post Title.
noteYou can add a Subtitle for added context. It will be displayed just below the Title.
- Edit the Body text (if applicable, see Note below).
noteBody text only applies to In Application posts. In Application posts are for sites that don’t have direct permalinks to the page you’d like to share. Selecting In Application on the Settings tab (see below) will pull the body text from the web page into the platform (i.e. “in-application”). In these cases, the Body text may be edited here. Body text is not displayed for regular, Out of Application posts. Most every post you import should be Out of Application.
- Verify/edit the imported Description.
- Import a Video Link (if applicable).
noteIf you don’t have the Native Video feature enabled for your platform, you will only be able to import YouTube video links.
- Attach a Document (if applicable).
noteIf the source article contains an image, it will be uploaded automatically. Feel free to remove and/or upload additional images. Images uploaded to the platform must be 5MB or less.
tipImages that are 640x420 pixels or greater provide the best user experience across desktop, mobile, and tablet.
