Create an article

Articles are a great way to show long-form posts, such as blogs and of course, actual articles.

To add an article to a folder, firstly, you must create one. The guide for creating folders can be found here.

Click on the media root folder to be presented with the below view.

Here you can either select an existing folder, or create a new one by clicking on the plus icon 'add folder(s)'. 

Click on the folder you want to add your article(s) to. Doing this will land you directly on its main view.

If you want you can add an end note, a video (which will display at the bottom of the post) and decide whether you'd like the published date showing.

Embedding assets within your article

Add an image inside of the article's text, place this code within the text:

<center><img src ="IMAGE URL HERE" width="320"></center> 

We recommend using Imgur or ImgBB to host your images and generate a URL from. It should look like this:

<center><img src="IMAGE URL HERE" width="320"></center>

Add a hyperlinked email address inside the article's text:

<a href ="mailto: EMAIL ADDRESS HERE">EMAIL ADDRESS HERE</a>

It should look like this:  

<a href="mailto:support@disciplemedia.com">support@disciplemedia.com</a>


Add a hyperlinked telephone number inside the article's text: 

<a href ="tel: PHONE NUMBER HERE">PHONE NUMBER HERE</a> 

Make sure you add the international "+" country code to the part in the <brackets>, such as +44 for the UK or +1 for USA. It should look like this: 

<a href='tel:+44 1111 111111">01111 111111</a> 

When you're happy with your content just click publish!
