Website How-Tos


How to post a story and/or photo(s)
  • Log in to your site’s dashboard at (Replace XXXXX with the campus — like kurth or lhs or lms)
  • Click “New post” at the top of the page
  • Give the post a headline in the “Enter title here” field at the top
  • Enter your text in the large text window; you can use bold, italics, bulleted lists, pull quotes and links
  • Place your photo(s) on the page
  • Give the post one or more “Categories” by checking the boxes on the right side of the page; be sure to use “Homepage Featured” if you want the post to show up at the top of your website’s front page
  • Feel free to add “Tags” below “Categories” (Example: One of the categories may be “Athletics” and the tag can be “Football”)
  • Set the Featured Image; this is the photo that will show up at the top of your front page (if it’s a “Homepage Featured” post) and in the thumbnails of other post lists … Tip: Horizontal photos work best as the Featured Image
  • Press the “Publish” button on the right
  • Check your post with the “View post” link at the top of the page
  • Go to your “Posts” (on the left side of the page) to make any necessary changes


Add an event to your school’s Google Calendar
  • Visit to access the calendar
  • Click the red “Create” button at the top left of the page
  • Name the event in the “Untitled event” field (Example: “Field Day”)
  • Either put the specific date and time of the event; if it’s an all-day event (or you don’t know the exact time), click “All day”
  • Click “Repeat” if the event is multiple days in a row or is recurring
  • Enter the location in the “Where” field
  • Make sure the Calendar is your campus calendar
  • Add a description of the event, including a link to more information elsewhere on the web if appropriate
  • Click the red “Save” button at the top
  • Note that it may take a little while (up to 15-30 minutes) for the event to show up on the Google Calendar on your school website
