The ‘Like’ Button & Comments

Have you noticed that there is a “like” button to click on to show you have favorited a certain report, article or images?

Try it out! If you are using a Firefox browser on a PC or laptop, however, it does not work. But if you are using Firefox browser on your smartphone, it does work.

My testing it have found it will register with all other browsers I have tried.

Know how frustrated many of us used to get because we could not edit our comments, correct spelling etc. with CNN’s iReport?

Well now you can edit your comment!  Simply click on the “edit” link and correct any typos or those silly auto-correct goofs.

Another point on comments, you can also reply directly to each individual comment. Simply click on “reply” directly under the comment you wish to respond.

The response will appear directly under the comment to which you are replying in an hierarchy format.

Kernels – Remains Dark

cornfieldkernels

Had to spend most of the day at the ophthalmologist’s, picking up prescriptions, a few groceries and getting blood drawn.

Due to not getting home until around 6 p.m. and that this cold, damp weather is not friendly to my health concerns, Kernels will remain dark tonight.

That said, there will be a special week ending wrap up on Saturday.

Regular daily Kernels will resume on Monday.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Burro-ing – Direct Video Upload Test

I attempted to upload a video directly from my computer rather than uploading to YouTube first.

Here is the result:

Burro-ing

As you can see it is a link which when clicked on asks to download to your computer or device.

When opened it does play and show.

However, in order for the video to play in your post, you need to upload to YouTube first and paste that link for the video to play in your post.

Passwords for Citizen Journalists Live

The site automatically generates a password when you register.

You need to either save the password, write it down and keep it.

You can change your password to one which is easier to remember by clicking on log in and then click on the reset password or forgot password link. You will need to enter either the email address with which you registered or your username.

You will receive an email with a link to reset your password. Once you click on the link and go to the reset password page, you will be able to change your password to whatever you want.

Of course if you have any trouble, simply email me and I can do it for you.

Uploading Photos & Videos

To upload photos to your post, do not use Quick Draft.

In your Dashboard, click on New. This will open up the full post editor. You can use the toggle next to the ABC check mark to allow you to change font color etc. if you wish to add any text to your post.

Once in full editor, you can opt for visual (or what you see is what you get) or text if you know HTML.

To add photos:

Click on the Add Media button. It will open your media library where you can click on select files to upload your photos. Once uploaded click on Insert into Post on the right side.

Your photos are ready to share with the world!

Click Publish. To share a video:

You must upload to YouTube first. Copy the link location and simply paste it into the body of your post.

The site will automatically embed the video for you.

You are good to go.

Again you can add any text you want as well.

Click publish and show the world your talent.

Any questions, do not hesitate to contact me.
