Persona Paper Posting Made Easy (or NOT!)

This is a follow-up to a post written by CalmGemini that was too much explanation to write in the Comments box.

RE: Problem Uploading Posts.

Good or bad, is still benefiting from its high ranking with . Why not write about the site and reap some of the benefits of organic search by others; and also answer a few questions others might have and/or share your experience? It's all good.

Rarely do I have problems publishing a post at . I can remember maybe having one frustrating experience. However I have a and process that works for me here. But if you don't know much about HTML code it may not work for you. BTW, if you want to learn HTML coding for free, here's a link: Learn to code for free .

If you don't want to learn HTML here is a site (I use all the time) that will convert your text to HTML:

Going to try to make this posting lesson quick.

(1) Type of your post as Word or OpenOffice document.

(2) Go to the text fixer tool , put it in the box and convert to HTML.

(3) Come over to the PersonaPaper post edit module and click on these symbols “ < > ”. This is the Source Code you will see:

<!DOCTYPE html>







(4) See the space in between <body> and </body>? Stick your converted text /HTML code from the textfixer box in there. Click “Ok”.

(5) Like what you see? Maybe do a little “cosmetics” - backspace to eliminate white space between paragraphs, insert/edit hyperlinks, correct spelling errors, etc. But if it looks alright, click "Save Draft" for a preview and then “Submit” to publish.

As time goes on you can figure out how to insert images, etc. This process works for me. Maybe it will help you. If it sounds too complicated, DON'T DO IT!! Do what works for you. You're here for productivity, profitability and fun. Not for frustration.

I used to write on Squidoo and one of the things I loved about that site was the number of lenses which dealt with coding (I believe some of them are now available on HubPages). I picked up quite a few tricks and tips some of which I have used on Persona Paper. A lot of sites don't allow access to the code they use so we are lucky that PP does. However, it doesn't do to use too much code because unless you are careful you can end up with a totally confusing mess which detracts from whatever it is you are trying to say. If you write your own code there is a site which allows you to test HTML, CSS and Javascript before you publish it -

Ha ha, I just glazed over when I saw all the stuff in blue. I actually do know some html, as can be seen here . Hopefully, it's enough emoticon :winking:

Yes I remember there were lots of Squidoo lenses about coding. I learned coding when my son gave me a computer with OpenOffice on it instead Microsoft Word. The older OO versions used to have a feature that converted the document to HTML. The OO version I have now doesn't have it. What happened was I was trying out a do-it-yourself website building app and that got me started fooling around with the HTML. Thanks for that link. Bookmarked it!!

AliCanary - That's a very clever one and is really all you need to know when using social writing sites!

Hmm i didnt know it was necessary to do all of these things , i guess im behind

You're not behind. That's the good thing about this site. You move at your own pace and do what you can do or want to do. You're not in anybody's forced labor camp. :)
