Troubleshooting & Tips:


• Edit existing—Click on ornage EDIT icon (pencil) in upper right of any of your posts 

Pasting in text is causing problems! If you paste in  text from Word or other text software, you might get unexpected results (formatting lost or distorted, etc). Hidden Word formatting code can mangle or even break the page, when you publish.
If the poem is short enough and has simple formatting, consider typing it in.

How do I make returns? Hard and Soft returns make stanza and line breaks. Return orEnter is a Hard or paragraph return. Shift-Return or Shift-Enter is a Soft or linebreak return. Experiment and see how it works. It is okay to use nothing but Soft Returns, and add an extra one to make the stanza break.

You can type in optional Tags if you like, on the right, as these help visitors search using keywords.

If you want to add a "Cover Image" to your post, see our "How to Add Media" tutorial.

If you want to explore other features and functions (at the top and on the right) feel free, but be cautious. If you want to arrange a small group training for more advanced techniques, contact meHere are some useful links. I have simplified our EasyBlog (EB) environment, so these might no t match exactly what CAPS uses. They also cover some of the more complex capabilites, which exceed what most CAPS users will normally need.
