How to add yourself to the new website

Hey all,
This is still a work in progress, but would help SO SO so much if you could enter yourself into the portfolio database and help me finish up the site so we can set it live! 🙂 So here’s a tutorial I put together below on how to add yourself to the site…

So first of all, login with the info that you received in the email and you’ll be taken to this page.

(click on it to enlarge). From here, go to the menu on the left-hand side and click on “portfolio” and then click on “add new”. You’ll then be taken to a page that looks like this:

(but without the ‘Lorem Ipsum’ information). From here, enter your full artist name into the first form field ( which appears under ‘add new portfolio link’….

Next, click on this link: and highlight all the information in the body (from the first URLs to the last sentence that answers ‘what do you think is sexy?’ … Copy the text there and then paste it into the 2nd giant text box on the page. ( … WordPress is magical in that you can go back to the portfolio page you’re working on and it’ll paste the exact same layout that you copied from the webpage. If it isn’t keeping the format, make sure that the “visual” tab is selected when you paste, and not the “html” tab. Replace all the information with your own text — and the URLs as well! To edit the URL link highlight the URL and click the ‘link’ tab

Lastly, you just need to enter a short description into the “subtitle” and “Preview Caption” area that are both the same about yourself (very short, this will appear when looking through the artists underneath your name… so maybe about your specialty? Animator? Painter? ect).

Then, upload an image that is no smaller than 656 pixels wide (can be however tall you’d like). Upload your image to both the ‘Preview Image’ area and then upload the same image to the ‘featured image’ box area by clicking on the ‘set featured image’ link (the featured image box is located on the right-side of the page, underneath the ‘Tags’ box)

Alright! Once you’ve done all that, you should be able to scroll back up to the top of the page, look in the top-right column for the box that says “publish” and then click the “publish” button…  you should then see your finished Profile page appear here: and you’ve been added! If I’ve already added you and you cant alter your info, send over a message to let me know what you’d like to replace it with…

    • Okay so I’m pretty sure I just saved profile as a draft because I couldn’t figure out how to upload a pic. Then I asked the question above and left the site to do some other things. I just came back to check in and now my portfolio is published not a draft…could you make it so I can edit it or can you delete it so I can start over?

      I’m sorry! I feel like I’m a problem child here asking all the questions!

    • Hi Leen,
      What do you mean when you say access? Do you mean upload images? Unless its been published it won’t show up on the front page, but as long as its in draft mode, you should be able to access it…
