Ok, we’re going to start with setting up some permissions.

Go to “modules”

Now, put a check mark by the following:

Now, let’s switch the theme of the site.

Go to “appearance” and choose a theme.

Pick anything…doesn’t matter (but you might have to fix it later).

Now, one more thing before we create a basic page…let’s look at embedding YouTube videos.

Select a video.

Don’t grab the link (http)…you want the embed code (starts with <iframe).

Put the embed code into whatever content you’re creating. Use the page break <p> before and after the video.

A quick side lesson on embedding tweets, and Vimeo vids.

Embedding Vimeo videos.

Hit “share”

Ok, let’s move on to embedding pictures.

Sometimes, you just need a picture of something (not a celebrity, sports star, etc.) to tie into your story. For example, if you’re a news site publishing a story about how sitting at a desk all day is terrible for your health, you may want to put up like this to attract attention.

You don’t want to just grab a pic off Google, as this can get you sued.

Instead, go to Flickr Creative Commons (flickr.com/creativecommons)

Search for something.

Then, click on the square in the lower right hand corner.
