To help get you started, your site came with a preselected style, but you can change this preset style to create a different baseline look.

You can change the fonts, background, general appearance, and even your site’s favicon and bullet points by using the tools provided under General Design and Layout.

Each widget on your site can be assigned to one of five widget styles that you can customize. In addition, SNO widgets can each be assigned custom colors and styles in the controls for the individual widget on the Edit Widget page.

Use social media to increase readership https://wisdomlane360.com/486/features/use-social-media-to-increase-readership/ https://wisdomlane360.com/486/features/use-social-media-to-increase-readership/#respond Mon, 12 Aug 2019 13:29:04 +0000 http://install.snosites.net/?p=486 Social media platforms are the best way to drive traffic to your new site.

So, set up a Facebook Fan Page, and get your audience to like your publication. Even add a Facebook Like Box to your website to increase your audience.  Then when you publish a story, add a link and teaser on your Facebook Fan Page.

For Twitter, set up an account for your publication, and get your audience to follow your publication. Then use your tweets to provide your audience with instant news and sports updates. You can even display your Twitter feed on your website. And when you publish a story, tweet about and link to the story from your Twitter account.

For Instagram, set up an account for your publication, get your audience to follow your publication. Use Instagram to provide visual images of news and happenings that would interest your audience.  Don’t forget to link your Instagram account to your website.

Prepare your photos for online presentation https://wisdomlane360.com/451/field-trips/prepare-your-photos-for-online-presentation/ https://wisdomlane360.com/451/field-trips/prepare-your-photos-for-online-presentation/#respond Mon, 12 Aug 2019 13:29:04 +0000 http://install.snosites.net/?p=451 Your site automatically generates a series of scaled down images for each photo you upload for the various parts of your site that display different sizes of images.

Cameras take pictures at a far higher resolution than will ever be useful on a website — the pictures you take are often more than 100 times larger than your website needs.  In order to keep your website from loading slowly, it is important that you scale your photos down appropriately before you upload them to your site.

You can use PhotoShop’s cropping tools and Save for Web option to effectively reduce the file size of a photo before you upload it to your site.

Always save your photos in RGB color mode — this is the default mode your camera uses.  Color photos for print require CMYK mode, but CMYK mode doesn’t work consistently on all browsers.

Go beyond a single photo with slideshows https://wisdomlane360.com/450/features/go-beyond-a-single-photo-with-slideshows/ https://wisdomlane360.com/450/features/go-beyond-a-single-photo-with-slideshows/#respond Mon, 12 Aug 2019 13:29:04 +0000 http://install.snosites.net/?p=450 Slideshows are built by uploading multiple photos to a story. Follow the steps below to make a slideshow that goes with any story.

When adding/editing a story, click on the Add Media button above the main story box. In the window that opens, click on Upload Files and upload from your computer all of the images you are interested in adding to the slideshow. (Do not click Create Gallery.)

Click on each image you uploaded and use the boxes that appear to the right to enter a caption and photographer. To see just the images that will be in your slideshow, choose “Images uploaded to post” from the dropdown menu.

When you are done adding the pictures, click the X in the upper right-hand corner. (Do not click the Insert into post button). Select “Slideshow of all Attached Images” for the Featured Image Location option, and a slideshow with captions and photo credits will automatically be generated at the top of the story.

You will not see these photos anywhere on the Edit Story page for the story, but once you view your story on your website, they will be displayed there.

It is recommended that you also add a Featured Image to this story so that an image will be displayed on the homepage of your site.
