Pack Snaps is the new Loyola photo blog where we post the best photos we find in our archives. Below we outline the steps for submitting photos to the blog.
1. Log In
You can log in from the following URL:
If you do not already have a user name and password, please contact the Web Team (firstname.lastname@example.org). Be advised that only certain Loyola staff members will be permitted to post photos to the blog.
Once logged in, make sure you are on the Pack Snaps admin. The appropriate tab should be highlighted at the top left of the page.
2. Write Post
Navigate to Write > Post as shown:
3. Add Media
Click the icon alongside Add media…
…to bring up the media controls:
Click the Choose files to upload button and browse for the image you want to post on your hard drive. Once selected, you should see a progress bar indicating that the image is being uploaded.
(NOTE: Do not upload multiple files at the same time. Only one image may be included in each post on the photo blog.)
Once the image has been uploaded, you will be given the option to add information about the image. DO NOT add anything, but do ensure that Thumbnail is selected for Size:
Next, click the Insert into Post button.
You should now be back at the Write Post screen, with the thumbnail for your image visible in the editor:
4. Add a Title (optional)
You can add a title to the post via the Title field above the editor. This is the best place to identify the people/place/activity in the photo.
The title will be displayed on the permalink page for the photo.
5. Add Tags
Tagging is very important. It allows users to find specific images quickly. You can add tags using the field right below the editor:
Enter as many tags as you like. Make sure each one is relevant to the image or part of the image. You may use the names of people in the photo as tags. It’s also a good idea to enter the year the photo was taken as a tag.
Once you have listed all your tags, click the Add button.
Click the Publish button on the right side of the page:
Your image should now be published. Check the homepage to ensure it displays appropriately:
7. Make Changes
If you need to make any changes to the image you posted, you can do so by clicking the title of the post on the Manage Posts page:
