Adding an article on

It’s quite easy to add an article to the website, but there is some explanation needed.

First off:

Articles are docked in categories and categories are docked in section.

On there is, at the moment, one section “rampersads” in the section there are several categories. When adding an article, be sure to place the article in the most suitable category.

When adding an article you would be presented with the following screen. Bellow you would find a small explanation of the different areas.

Past from Word button.


If you are copying an article that was made in Word, it would be better to use the paste from word button.



Adding photos:

It is possible to add photos to your articles but…. yes there is a but. Because of the amount of web space available, the photos must be resized to a smaller format. If you know how to do that, go ahead and resize your photos. A maximum of no more than 850kb per photo is the (my) limit. If the site gets too full we would probable have to remove some photos.


This is how I resize and add my photos to my articles.


Resizing photos:

I’ve installed a power toy to XP that allows me to resize a photo with the right click of the mouse. You could find the XP toy here.

  • Right click on the photo to be used and click on Resize Pictures.
  • ScreenShot017.jpg
  • Chose Small
  • ScreenShot018.jpg
  • The photo is resized to a smaller format with the name (small) at the end.
  • ScreenShot019.jpg
  • Rename the resized photo so that there are no brackets in the name.

Adding the photo to an article:
  • In the editor on the website click on the Insert/edit image button.
  • ScreenShot020.jpg
  • In the popup box click the upload button (on the right hand side)
  • ScreenShot021.jpg
  • In the pop up window for uploading photos click on add file.
  • ScreenShot022.jpg
  • Chose the renamed, resized photo and click on upload.
  • ScreenShot024.jpg
  • Once the file is uploaded you could use it in your article. When you chose a photo in the image manager which you see after clinking the insert/edit image button, you could set some more settings for that photo. In this window be sure to set the first dimension to 550 otherwise the photo would not show well on the site.

  • Once you’ve done that you click on update.
  • ScreenShot026.jpg

Now you could save you article.
