A work-aound to get Storify on WordPress

So, here’s one way to do it. Save a screenshot of your Storify, and add a link.To save a screen shot on a PC you hit a button called “PrintScrn. ” then paste in onto a Word  document, click on it and save it as a JPG. You may need to open it in a photo editor like Photoshop to crop it.On the Mac, save the whole screen with shift-command -3 and crop it with shift-command- 4.

But, first crop it,.

Be a little neater than I was. That small bit of partial text on the right looks bad.

But, make sure you change the  URL/address when you upload the photo to the post.

Then instruct your readers to click on the image for the screen shot. Also hyperlink some text to the url.

How to use Storify, but not how to put it on your blog

I would rip that title in COM201  but it works sort of as a headline.
So, this embed didn’t work out real well. Let’s start with a link then and I’ll show you the half-assed way to get you Storify on to your WordPress page. I wish these sites would play well together.

I’ll show you how to set up a link next week.

  2. Storify is now telling me to save, which I will do by clicking “save now” above. I also know that there was a panel last night on the closure of the Phoenix, so I searched the hashtag #phoenixmit.
  3. Legacy of the Phoenix panel at MIT #phoenixMIT @fvckthemedia @ MIT Media Lab instagram.com/p/eLReisnOd0/
  4. You can also past a link in to the right and find material that way.
  5. 1st question for last Phoenix editor Carioli: was it a surprise when the paper/magazine died? #phoenixmit
  6. so, @carlycarioli explains that the last ditch attempt to save the title was to switch the Phoenix to a glossy magazine format #phoenixmit
  7. But, says @carlycarioli, things went well at the beginning-magazine version was fat, people seemed to like it, but got thinner…#phoenixMIT
  8. I found this in my original Google search and pulled it in to get some video in here.

  12. #phoenixMIT the 1 woman on this panel Anita Diamant says despite freelancing in the 70s, she had to be a secretary to get into the newsroom
