    How does the WorldSupporter text editor work?

    • Behind the scenes, a web text consists of HTML code, the icons at the top of the text field help you to convert simple plain text into a richer format.
    • It is possible to cut and paste text from Libre Office or Word, for example. Since these are not web editors, this is not optimal and some 'dirty' or 'unnecessary' HTML code that is invisible to the user is often added.
    • Preferably create your stories and contributions directly on WorldSupporter or another web editor.
    • For longer texts it is often useful to insert a heading structure. Place the cursor on the line you want to convert to a headline. Click on the desired 'heading' under the 'format' heading. Please note: Heading 1 is intended for the page title, so your first heading is normally a 'Heading 2', although you are free to use smaller headings.
    • Do you want to add an image within your story? Then make sure you save it in a reasonable format on your own computer. For displaying in the text, a width of 700px already fills the page - 200px is approximately as wide as the right column on the content pages
    • The WorldSupporter text editor leaves a lot of room for creativity - but your readers will often appreciate a structured/moderate application of styles…

    Many blogs illustrate their message or story with photos and other media. By giving readers the opportunity to respond, a stimulating environment can be created where beautiful ideas and thoughts can be shared. Of course there are also blog terrorists who are not so much interested in forming opinions and sharing knowledge, but rather want to share their own frustrations, or who like to silence others. Technical solutions have proven to be a good solution for this

    What are WorldSupporter Starting Pages ('start magazines')?

    • In a Starting Page you can bring together all your information or items connecting to one subject of your choice. This tool offers the most space for self-determination on what information you want to show in which place.
    • A Starting Page will make it easier for visitors to find all your contributions and easier for you to advertise your content and inspire others.
    •  

    How to create WorldSupporter Starting Pages?

    • Step 1: Log in and Create a new Starting Page
      • To start a new Starting Page you only need to think of a title and some basic category tags.
      • Write an introduction to your magazine in the textfield called 'body', this will provides visitors and search engines some guidance.
      • You can save and edit your magazine whenever you like.
    • Step 2: Start to add content
      • The tool allows you to write unique content or place pictures in the so called 'creative spaces'. The content you add at those places will only appear on this particular magazine.
      • The second option is to use the so called 'resources' field. These fields allow you to place you earlier WorldSupporter contributions in your magazine.
      • In addition to your own content you can also select contributions by other Supporters. To get those contributions in your 'resources' you need to go to those specific pages and click on the 'Save for later' button at the bottom of each contribution. Return to your page and it will appear in your resources list.
    • Step 3: Exposure
      • To attract additional attention to your magazine you can add it to the 'resources' field of all contributions that you wrote and that relate to your magazine.
      • When you have collected information or inspiration shared by other Supporters you can add a comment to their contribution and share your starting page (the author will receive an email as a notification of your comment).

    • een 'normaal' CV is in de meeste gevallen nog een vrij statisch document met een enkele keer een update, vooral rondom sollicitaties. Terwijl je WorldSupporter CV een profiel is dat doorlopend in beweging is.
    • Telkens wanneer je een nieuwe ervaring opdoet, activiteit uitvoert, een wereldfoto of -film maakt, een discussie wilt opstarten, lezing geeft of een column schrijft over een bijzondere ontmoeting in het buitenland, kun je dat toevoegen aan je magazine.

Daarnaast heb je als maker van jouw bijdrage de mogelijkheid om nog meer categorieën of 'tags' te geven aan je bijdrages.

    Vragen antwoorden over plaatsen van content, promoten van je bijdragen en het reageren op anderen

    Welk soort content en bijdragen kan je plaatsen?

    • De content die je kunt bijdragen wordt verdeeld over de onderstaande contentvormen:
      • Summaries & Study Notes: Samenvattingen - Studiematerialen
      • Text & Stories: Blogs - Instructies - Quotes - Statements - Stellingen
      • Tips & Suggestions: Events - Tips  - Recepten - Vacatures
      • Tools & Navigations: Bundels (content selecties) - Media (foto's, documenten) - Startpagina's ('magazines') - Updates ('messages')
    • Lees meer over het plaatsen en delen van content bij de engelstalige startpagina's en FAQ

    Hoe werkt de WorldSupporter tekst editor?

    • Een webtekst bestaat achter de schermen uit HTML code, de iconen bovenaan het tekstveld helpen je om van simpele platte tekst, een rijker format toe te passen.
    • Het is mogelijk om vanuit bijvoorbeeld Libre Office of Word tekst te knippen en plakken. Aangezien dit geen webeditors zijn, is dit niet optimaal en wordt vaak een deel voor de gebruiker onzichtbare 'vieze' of 'overbodige' HTML code toegevoegd.
    • Creeer je verhalen en bijdragen dus bij voorkeur direct op WorldSupporter of een andere webeditor.
    • Voor wat langere teksten is het vaak handig om een kop structuur in te voegen. Zet de cursor op de regel die je tot kop wilt omzetten. Klik onder de kop 'format' op de gewenste 'heading'. Let op: Heading 1 is bedoeld voor de pagina titel, je eerste kop is normaliter dus een 'Heading 2' al ben je vrij om kleinere koppen toe te passen.
    • Wil je binnen je verhaal een afbeelding toevoegen? Zorg dan dat je het op je eigen computer alvast in een redelijk formaat opslaat. Voor het tonen in de tekst is een breedte van 700px al pagina vullend - 200px is ongeveer zo breed als de rechterkolom op de content pagina's
    • De WorldSupporter tekst editor laat veel ruimte voor creativiteit - maar je lezers zullen een getructureerde/gematigde toepassing van stijlen vaak wel waarderen...

    Wat kan je doen als het uploaden van foto's niet lukt?

    • Controleer of het bestand niet groter is dan 2 MB.
    • Controleer of je bestand voldoet aan de vereisten die onder het veld vermeld staan, bv het bestandstype (meestal beperkt tot: png, gif, jpg, jpeg)

    Kunnen anderen reageren op je bijdragen, en hoe kan jij reageren op anderen?

    • Ja dat kan. Zeker als je anderen in je bericht uitnodigt om te reageren, of werkt met een vraag, concrete vervolgactie voor je lezer, of bv. de lezer uitdaagt met een stelling, mening of dilemma zullen anderen gaan reageren.
    • Anoniem reageren is beperkt mogelijk en wordt alleen na moderatie (vaak 1x per week) online geplaatst. Log altijd even in om snel de reactie mogelijkheid onder een door jezelf of een ander geplaatst bericht te gebruiken.
    • En zoals bij alle online profielen en social media geldt: als je het leuk vindt dat anderen gaan reageren op jouw bijdragen, plaats dan zelf ook eens een reactie in blog of bijdrage van een andere Supporter!
    • Ook kunnen anderen jou, of jij anderen, makkelijk volgen door onder een mini-CV of avatar op de button 'Follow' te klikken

    Hoe kunnen anderen jouw profiel ontdekken en bekijken?

    • Je kunt je WorldSupporter profiel zowel openbaar maken als alleen voor ander Worldsupporters zichtbaar laten zijn.
    • Op meerdere manieren kun je anderen wijzen op het bestaan van jouw WorldSupporter profiel:
      • door iemand de directe link naar jouw profiel te geven, of de 'social share' opties te gebruiken op de pagina
      • door content aan te maken, bij elke bijdrage staat een link + foto/avatar naar je persoonlijke profiel
      • door een comment/reactie achter te laten - met linkje - bij content die aansluit bij jouw bijdrage(n)
      • via het overzicht van Worldsupporter profielen, waarbij populaire content vaker zal worden uitgelicht
      • door je CV te linken vanuit je eigen sociale media berichten of account

    Hoe kan je jouw profiel of content onder de aandacht brengen?

    • Iedereen schrijft anders en interpreteert 'leuk' op andere manieren. Bekijk eens een aantal blogs van andere Supporters in het Magazine en bedenk waarom je de ene bijdrage leuker (geschreven) vindt dan de ander.
    • Check de bijdragen van Supporter Nelleke: Dit is een blog die niemand gaat lezen en Supporter Jessica: Why and how to blog

    Tips:

    • Varieer - Gebruik altijd verschillende tools (blogs, suggestions, foto's, bundles etc.) om iets in je WorldSupporter CV en persoonlijke proiel te zetten.
    • Activeer - Betrek actief je persoonlijke netwerk bij jouw WorldSupporter activiteiten. Deel je nieuwste content via social media en zorg ervoor dat ze je profiel gaan volgen en je bijdragen als 'favorite' markeren. Hoe meer volgers en 'favorite' flags hoe meer je naar voren komt op startpagina's en overzichten.
    • Motiveer - lees actief content van andere Supporters en laat ze weten wat je van hun content vindt, misschien nemen ze dan ook een kijkje op jouw persoonlijke profiel
    • Completeer - gebruik de mogelijkheden voor het toevoegen van een afbeelding, voeg alle relevante tags/categorien toe en gebruikt de optie 'resources' om specifieke 'lees verder' suggesties te geven
