When editing posts use the tabs to switch back and forth between the text and visual views as needed.

It’s important to understand what you see in the EDIT POST, so I’ve taking the example post and labeled each block of code.

The picture

Each post as an image at the top of the code.  The image looks like this in code:

<div style="float:none"><a target="_blank" href="http://nesbittrealty.com/homes-sale-northern-va/search-results/#&amp;PropertyID=70546708&amp;PropertySearchID=3978729"><img width="500" src="http://2.idx-pics.diverse-cdn.com/67/ax8215822/0-medium.jpg?3978729" alt="Property Photo"></a></div>

The details

The details show information about the property, including the number of bedrooms, the size of the home, the type of property, the MLS number and the Tract are all very important for this task.

Creating the New Post

Start by writing a title.  The title of the new post MUST USE THIS FORMAT.

In the above example the title of the new article is “What’s the epitome of Old Town Charm?” Notice that this title was inspired by the description above.

 

Now comes the article. The article is only 1 or 2 sentences long and replies to the title.  In this case the article would read: “The epitome of Old Town charm found in a townhouse around $700,000 in 22314 zipcode.”

Now put the same tags on this post as were in the first post.  In this case,

Create an article by writing a title and a line of text.  Then search for property using the green button. The publish the new article.
