[Body]

The WorldSupporter Magazine is an essential tool on WorldSupporter. You can create your own Magazines from shared content of others or yourself. This tool offers the most space for self-determination on what information you want to show in which place.

But what are WorldSupporter Magazines exactly?

Firstly, you can bring together all the essential information or items pertaining a subject of your choice in a WorldSupporter Magazine. For instance, you can create a WorldSupporter Magazine about your trip to Peru in which you bundle all your blogs, media, updates and recipes that relate to your trip. Moreover, you can organize your content how you want. Additionally, a Magazine will make it easier for visitors to find all your contributions and easier for you to advertise your content.

How do you create a WorldSupporter Magazine?

Creating a WorldSupporter Magazine is as simple as logging in to your account and going to the "add your own magazine of content" link. Alternatively, you can click the "add content" button on the homepage or on your profile and click on the magazine button afterwards.

How do you add content to your WorldSupporter Magazine?

A WorldSupporter Magazine can be devided in eight different sections where you can add content to (see figure 1). The body and title sections are the only sections that require you to insert information. You are free to decide if you are going to use all of the other six sections or only a few of them or none at all. Additionally, the image you chose for the magazine will be found on the top right section of the magazine by default. You can view this whole magazine for examples on how content can be added to your own magazine.

For each optional section you have the option of adding text and/ or adding your previously added content. You can add your previously added content by typing a kew word in the resources field in the reference section of the editing page. Alternatively, you can add content from other Supporters to your Magazine. To do this, you will have to go to the Supporter's content page and click on the 'Save for later' button (see figure 2). This will add the page to your list of selected content which will enable you to add these pages to your magazine the same way you would your own content!

Tip:

It is advised to give the reader all the essential information in the body section so that the user knows what to expect in the magazine.

Tip:

Keep all the content of the magazine based on the chosen topic. Don't add "easter egg" content that has nothing to do with the chosen topic so not to confuse the reader.
