Posts reward a more considered approach, whether a blog article, a review, a feature, a gallery, a playlist, a news report or opinion piece or a combination of any or all of those. Posts are taggable and more easily filterable / searchable and can also be sent to The Bugle, a Project, Guild or your own Portfolio.
You can create a Post (as well as Project or Event) by clicking the Create Content button on your Profile / Home Page
How to get started : Status Updates and Posts
Creating a Post
Each Guild has :
1 Its own magazine, made up of editorially sourced and posted status updates (current topical 'found' content - the pulse of each Guild) along with more in depth articles, blogs, galleries, videos, playlists. members can like, share and comment on these updates.
2 A forum for deeper discussion. Any member can start a thread and / or comment.
3 A resources page - bookmarked articles and links relevant to each Guild
4 Specific Guild events calendar
5 Its own editor / editorial team who will give each Guild its own unique flavour
Guilds and their magazines
Projects should be seen as containers into which you can pull a variety of different posts - articles, galleries, playlists, links sets, for example. Start, as you with a post, on your own Profile page via the 'create content' button.

For galleries, a minimum of 2000 pixels wide is recommended (larger images look better full screen) but can also be ‘saved for web’ in Photoshop or other editing software to reduce the file size and ease the load on the server.

How our membership model can work
Our ethos : draft
You will receive a one-time login password if you use “Have you forgotten your password?” option.
From the "Reset Password email" you will have access to the "Edit profile/password” where you can submit and use a new password.
Remember to hit “Save” at the bottom of the page to save the new password.
If the member doesn’t remember the password, he/she can use some Chrome functionality or apps as https://www.lastpass.com to manage website’s password.
The Page "You may not have the necessary permissions to access this page. You may need to login below or register to continue" Will appear if you are not logged into the site.
You then have to login and then accept/decline the invitation.
Admins do not know or have access to passwords.
I've tried setting my location both in my profile and when creating a beacon. The map doesn't load. I'm using Chrome on a Windows laptop. Would you recommend an alternative browser? I'm thinking Firefox fits better with Campfire's ethos...
