Registering and logging in

To register as a new member of the department, click on the Register tab in the Menu (under Login).  Your account will be activated once the administrator confirms your identity.

To log in, click on the Login in the Menu tab. Once logged in, click on the Dashboard icon (upper left corner of the webpage).  This will generate a sidebar with various tasks you can work on.


To update your profile

From the Dashboard drop down, go to USERS and then go to YOUR PROFILE.  Or Click on your photo icon on the upper right hand side of the webpage once you are logged in.


To make a new post (e.g., recent publications or blog)

From Dashboard drop down, go to POSTS, then go to ADD NEW. Then start writing/editing your post.  Before you publish, go to the sidebar and under CATEGORIES, click the appropriate category.  For example, if this is a general news item, click NEWS. If it is a publication, click RECENT PUBLICATIONS.  If it is a blog, click BLOG.

To edit an old post

From Dashaboard, go to POSTS, then go to ALL POSTS.  In the search box, type in the title or keyword to find you old post.  Go ahead and edit.

To upload a file (pdf, jpg, etc.)

There are two ways to do this. You can go to Dashboard and then click on MEDIA, which will take you through the process.  This is the best way to upload PDFs.  You can then link to the PDFS from any page or post.

You can upload images through MEDIA or directly within a Page or a Post. If the latter, click on Media in the Page or Post editor.  PDFs must be uploaded through the MEDIA tab under the dashboard, not through pages or posts.

To link publication references in your profile to a pdf file or other media

In Your Profile, if you want to add links to any text, you have to use html.  For example, if you want your reference to look like this
Lee, C.-T A., Yeung, L. Y., McKenzie, N. R., Yokoyama, Y., Ozaki, K., Lenardic, A., 2016. Two-step rise in atmospheric oxygen is an inevitable consequence of the growth of granitic continents and continental carbonates, Nature Geoscience doi:10.1038/NGEO2707.

then insert the appropriate html script (RED) into the text as shown below


the html link can be to any media you uploaded onto our website (see above) or to an external website
