Frequently Asked Questions
How do I report a bug?
The easiest way is to send an email to the Administrator at [email protected]
Can I put a link in my article?
Yes. If you want to anchor hyperlinks in text, use the following HTML code:
<a href="http://yourlink" target="_blank">your link text</a>
Copy and paste the above code into your article and replace 'yourlink' and 'your link text' to yours.
Can I change the format of my article?
Yes, please refer to this page that covers how to use HTML and CSS to format your article. (Please note that Elder Moderators may step in to fix any HTML inconsistencies.)
Can I insert an image in my article?
Yes. If you want to use an image in your article, the image has to already be somewhere online. We recommend you use Imgur to post images and will then create a link post that links to the URL of the image you just uploaded to Imgur. Then you can use the following HTML code to insert the image into your article:
<img class="img-fluid" src="http://LinktoTheImage"/>
Copy and paste the above code into your article and replace the link of the image to the actual one.
Can I embed a YouTube video in my article?
Yes. Go to the YouTube video you would like to share. Next to the thumb down button, you will see the "share" button. Click that and then click "embed". A paragraph of HTML code similar to the following will show:
<iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/K7Z1Gi3rxwM" frameborder="0" allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen></iframe>
Copy and paste your YouTube embedded code into your article and you are all set.
Can I put ads in my article?
Yes, as long as it abides to the posting policy.
Can I save a draft of an unfinished article before I click "publish"?
You cannot. We recommend you work on and save the draft elsewhere such as a Google Doc. Then copy and paste from there into the article submission window. To avoid accidentally logging out and losing what you had written, do not go into sleep mode, log out, or log out of GoPubby in another browser window.
