familiarize yourself with the ‘quicktag’ buttons which appear about the text entry box; they will mentioned numerous times in this tutorial.
if your review is more than 2 paragraphs long, then you should separate the first paragraph from the rest of the text, so that the front page of the site stays uncluttered. you can do this by placing the
<!--more--> tag between your first and second paragraph, or by placing the cursor at the beginning of the second paragraph and clicking the ‘more’ quicktag.
when you complete your tableau, please enter the city and state (and country if outside the United States) in the box labeled ‘Tags’. separate each term with a comma (,). For example, you would enter something like: Chicago, Illinois or Paris, France.
if you have an image for the cafe which you are reviewing, it should be on your computer and no more than 550px wide. when you are writing your review, you can click the ‘Photos’ button; a new window will appear, and you can browse to your image and upload it.
on the next screen, you will see an option for a thumbnail or a full size image. choose the thumbnail. if you choose full size, we will delete it.
one you choose thumbnail, you will see a piece of code: things written in <tags> <like> <this>. copy this code and paste it at the beginning of your entry. if you have more than one image, you can paste them any place in the body of your entry that you find appropriate.
we suggest that you take your own photographs or create your own drawings/collages. please do not swipe images from a cafe’s website and place them on cafe tableaux. that is lame, and we will delete them.
if you have some comments that may pass the editorial scrutiny of cafe tableaux, you can submit it with a degree of textist formatting through the use of the quicktags above the comment window. consider carefully your use of these tools.
you can also post an image within the comments, provided that you have knowledge of the img src tags to post the images. the images can be hosted on cafe tableaux if you are registered; otherwise, you will need to host them elsewhere, such as imageshack.us. any images posted the the comments should be no more than 350px wide; if they are larger, we will delete them.
