Week 9: adding your YOLO Project Page

Hi class!

In order to post your Assignment 4: Visual Map to the YOLO Project  page you’re going to have to create your own YOLO Project Page that is parented under the YOLO Project page.

You’ve had some practice with this when you completed your About Me assignment. Here is a refresher…

Sign in to WordPress with you’re username

Once at the dashboard, select the Pages icon and then select Add New

Title your new page YOLO Your Name. e.g. YOLO Jamie Uretsky

Using the Add Media button upload an image of your Visual Map. You can write a little something about your map if you want , but it isn’t required.

If you created a map in powerpoint, video or some other alternative medium you will have to document your map with screen shots, video stills or even hosting your video on youtube or vimeo before posting to WordPress.

Before you Publish your YOLO Project Page, you must parent your new page under the the YOLO Project heading (page).

Here’s how:

Locate the Page Attributes box on the right side of your screen.
