If any one is interested in putting some stories/trips/anything vaguely related to kayaking in and around Canberra, please register.  Below is a quick guide on registering and posting.

1) You can register by going to http://www.kayakcanberra.com/wp-login.php and clicking register.  The account is completely separate to your forum account.

2) Once you have registered go to http://www.kayakcanberra.com/wp-admin/.  From here you can change your password, as well as create posts, edit posts etc.  Posts are simply the stories on the front page.

3) To write a post, click on the write tab up the top.  Write your post out and click save, the post will then need to be approved before it will be published, once approved it will appear on the front page.

I now use Picasa to create photo albums.  If you have picasa you can export your album in XML format and email me the folder zipped and I will upload it to the server.  Alternately you can use the old method below.

Note:  If you are posting pictures: Please first compress the pictures to a reasonable size (long dimension should be between 640 and 1024 pixels, and file size should be < 200KB).  There is no need to create thumbnail images, this will be done automatically.

1) Underneath the edit box of your post there should be an upload section, find the file you wish to upload, and click upload.

2) Once it has uploaded ensure Show: Thumbnail is selected and Link to: File is also selected, this should be the default.

3) Now click send to editor and press the space bar to insert a space after the image thumbnail you have just placed in your post.

4) Now you can upload another image.  After 4 images hit the enter key to put new line in to match the other posts on the front page.

5) Once you have all your photos uploaded select them with the cursor and hit the Centre text button.  This should centre the images.  All done.
