Online Magazine ready for postings

I’ve formatted the home page for the new website: Heritage Online:

It will feature content articles about Montana culture. It’s the blog you will use to post teacher or student articles to the online magazine. I can add categories instantly, so if you want something different let me know, but for now I created a category for each of the monthly topics people have signed up to cover:

Celebrations, Traditions, Rituals
Nature and Environment
Schools and Education
Weddings and Marriage

Directions for posting to this blog (under FAQs).

This is primarily a forum for published work: a place to put students’ final drafts. Also, use this as a reward for your best student writing rather than as an assignment for all students. Though comments are welcome, please don’t use this to do drafts and revisions. We can create a blog specifically for your classroom if you want to do that kind of work.

There are several blogs you can post in. For teacher talk, or teaching resources, use “Teacherlore”.

For articles dealing with Montana’s cultural heritage, use “Heritage Online.”

For articles dealing specifically with Montana literature (book reviews, articles about writers, etc.) use “Readings in Montana Literature.”

For articles dealing with the sixties or Vietnam veterans, use “Sixties Expedition”.

  1. Is there an area for pictures to go with the stories?

  2. You can post pictures.

    But all you post is the html code giving the image’s location. It doesn’t make sense to people unfamiliar with html.

    Also, designing the template is complicated (I have to tell the template where to put the picture, but I need to know how big it will be. I could settle on a fixed width, but this is sure to break down with lots of people posting, some of them quite confused).

    I haven’t decided how to handle it for the masses, but I can show you how to do it when I’m in Chester. Like everything else, it’s simple to do but confusing to get started.

    I put image fields in the form you use for your blog, but I haven’t yet built the template to accept them, so if you posted images now they wouldn’t appear in the blog.

    Here’s different blog I built that allows one image in each post:
