Go to the publish page, (this link )
When you publish your news, a window will pop up two or three times, and ask you to accept a security certificate. If you don't accept it, you won't be able to upload your reports.
If you use mozilla as a browser, you can tell it to accept and remember the certificate. Then you will be prompted one time less.
If uploading large media, you will need to click here instead of the bigger button.
You may wish to write your report in a word processor then copy and paste it into the forms on the publish page so if it fails to upload then you have a spare copy of your writing to try again. At moment reports posted in HTML will have HTML stripped from them when displayed. This may be changed in future when the HTML can be checked for harmfull code by our system, but for now it all gets lost and plain text displayed. But we ( with admin access ) can switch the article to allow HTML formating to be displayed. If you copy and paste an article from email or other text wrapped source you may wish to remove line breaks to ensure viewer have amount of scolling required to read the article minimized.
Images in a compressed format such as jpeg and should be less than 50k file size and no more then 200k at very most. The width to be viewable easily on everyones screen should be restricted to 540 pixels, certainly no more than 1024.
You will be given some options:
Region this is optional. All postings appear automatically on the UK frontpage newswire. There is a maximum of 2 regions one can tick. If you tick a region, your article will also appear in the local page you choose. Do no repost article to get it on all regional pages, this may lead to all your postings being hidden. Note the local pages are linked to local collectives that manage them. If want to set up a local collective see contact page, join email lists, help out and engage.
Topic this is optional too. All postings appear automatically on the UK frontpage newswire. If you tick one or two topics, for instance 'ecology' and 'anti-militarism', your article will in addition appear in the pages dedicated to 'ecology' and 'anti-militarism'. People who only want to read articles on these issues will see it. There is a maximum number of 3 topics that you can choose.
Do not abuse (spam) the selections; this may lead to article being completely hidden
Reports can take a several minutes before they appear. Some pages such as topic pages take much longer than front page to update. Please do not repost.
