Write your story

Give your story a title and some text. Choose the appropriate topic from the drop-down list. The topics have been previously created by the site administrator and you cannot add a topic here.

Post Mode is "Plain Old Text" and "HTML Formatted". So, if you know HTML and would like to add emphasis such as bold and italics to your text, you may do so. The list of HTML tags which are allowed is listed in red. Your site's administrator can add to or subtract tags from this list.

TIP: Use an HTML editor to create your story. View the HTML code and copy it into the story. NB: Only copy the code between <body> and </body> HTML tags.


Preview your story

Select the Preview button and confirm the story is what you want

On some Geeklog sites, the site administrator may have allowed all submissions to be automatically posted. In this case, there is no approval step and your story will automatically show up within the topic you selected. The site administrator may choose the approval mode by modifying a special Geeklog file called config.php.
