Photo Posts

Photos sent to WordPress are intended to appear as a "featured image" of a blog post.

The instructions slightly differ depending on whether your WordPress theme supports featured images or not.


If your WordPress theme supports "features images"

There are no special steps required. You can send your post as you normally would from Postradamus to your WP blog.


If your WordPress theme does not support "features images"

1. Create a Post Template for each source you take content from for your WP blog.

(For example, if you find content for your blog from Content > Pinterest, Content > Instagram, and Content > Facebook, you will need to create a Post Template for Pinterest, for Instagram, and for Facebook)


2. In each Post Template, copy and paste the following code:


{text}
 
<img class="img-rounded img-responsive photo-post" src="{image_url}">


Like this:


3. Update the template


4. Now, whenever you find content from Content > (source) and select the posts you want to add to a list, apply your newly created Post Templates as you add the posts to a list:





Video Posts

The following instructions apply to video posts, regardless of whether your theme supports featured images or not.


1. Create a Post Template for each source you take content from for your WP blog.

(For example, if you find content for your blog from Content > YouTube, Content > Facebook, and Content > Twitter, you will need to create a Post Template for YouTube, for Facebook, and for Twitter)


2. In each Post Template, copy and paste the following code:

{text}

{embed_code}


Like this:


3. Update the template


4. Now, whenever you find content from Content > (source) and select the posts you want to add to a list, apply your newly created Post Templates as you add the posts to a list:




Extra Info ("I want to know more" :) )

What happens when you apply the below codes to your templates, and then to your posts: 


{text}

{embed_code}


Token {text} will be dynamically replaced with the text of the each post. For example, if the text of the post says:

"I love this picture!"

then the token {text} will be replaced with "I love this picture!"


Similarly, {text} More Text {text} would be replaced as follows:

"I love this picture! More Text I love this picture!"


Token {embed_code} will be dynamically replaced with the appropriate link/code required for the video to show on your WP page.


<img class="img-rounded img-responsive photo-post" src="{image_url}"> is a combination of HTML code and our token {image_url}.

For each post, the token {image_url} will be replaced with the link/URL of the image of the post.

The code that surrounds the token (<img class="img-rounded ... etc) determines the formatting/layout of the picture when it's posted to your WP page.
