How to Use MyPost Image Hosting
Using Image Hosting on MyPost
One of the great features that MyPost offers is image hosting. We do not have a direct upload form when creating a post, but you may use our Image Hosting to store your images for faster loading posts.

When you link to images offsite, you are slowing down your page, so we highly recommend using our own servers to store your images....
Likes and Dislikes
New Features: Likes and Dislikes
A feature made very popular by Facebook has, since its start, been the Like button. On Facebook, this displays popularity and allows for people to "like" things, which often means they approve of it. There is also another feature, which many people have been waiting for, that has yet to be implemented on Facebook, and that is, a dislike button....

The Beauty of Web Design
Everyone is an Artist
A man named Joseph Beuys once said, "Everyone is an artist." While he probably did not mean that everyone can grab a paintbrush and instantly become Picasso, Michelangelo, or Rembrandt. However, his implications were that everyone has a unique creativity within their own specialized talent. Some people are good at poetry, others are great at writing stories, others at painting, others at cooking, and others at crafting wood, or building things. Human beings are only limited by where their imaginations allow them to go....
How To Write A Blog Post
Writing Content For Your Blog
When it comes to writing a blog post, an article, a web page, or anything that is meant to capture the attention of a visitor, content is and always will be king. A writer can have the best intentions for their article, but if they have not written anything that captures an audience that can relate, than the material will go unread and undiscovered, especially if it means nothing to anyone. For example, someone writing about a blog post about their birthday and what they went through during that particular day may only attract a few visitors, but an article that writes about money, making money, and saving money might just be more interesting to the Internet than an article that lacks such discussion.....
Choosing a Strong Password
Protect Yourself With A Strong Secure Password
Many years ago, the only password anyone had to ever worry about was their pin number at the bank. If there were any other passwords, it might have involved knowing the password to get in at a club or a bar, a secret password to gain access to a highly secure area, or watching it on the television show, by the name of Password....
SEO Guidelines
SEO: It's All In The Content
SEO is short for Search Engine Optimization. SEO is a process by which your website visibility is affected by search engines. The better SEO that you have, the better chance of getting discovered in a search engine query. Many companies and individuals make a living out of "doing" SEO. SEO is technically not something you do, but something that happens over time. SEO is ever-changing and always needs to be happening for websites to continue ranking well and being discovered....

You can make a gorgeous post with very minimal HTML code....
To WordPress Or Not To WordPress
To WordPress Or Not: That Is The Question
Since its inception in 2003, WordPress has been increasing in popularity, and for many reasons. The huge fan base that is has acquired throughout the years, and largely in part because of its easy use, easy installation, and user-friendliness. Why wouldn't any beginners want to use WordPress for their website? Most users start on WordPress.com, where they sign up for a free account and are part of the WordPress.com community. WordPress.org, on the other hand, is a self-hosted option, where users can install WordPress on their own domain and hosted server. There are many reasons why people turn to WordPress.com or WordPress.org, but there are also many reasons why WordPress has yet to dominate the entire web market. In this article, we will focus on the reasons why WordPress may be the best option for you and reasons why you may want to consider another framework....
Why Web Fonts Matter in Web Design
Why Typography Matters Most For Web Design
When it comes to typography or font style in web design, it really does matter which font you choose. If every template or theme used the same font style, it would be very bland. Fonts accent the website design, the content, and make it enjoyable to read. Every person might have their favorite font style, but fonts can bring out emotions and feelings and excite or depress the reader. There are hundreds of fonts to choose from that both free and paid. All fonts are beautiful in their own way and usually portray content in a specific light....
MyPost for Students and Teachers
The Perfect Teaching Tool
Whether you are a web design teacher or a teacher of any subject, you probably have access to the tools you are given by the school system, and you have probably already found it somewhat limiting in what you can do. After all, the plain and simple black and white text is not going to hold attention spans for a very long time. In a world where even Facebook can become boring after a while, with its default white and blue colors, students are looking elsewhere for anything that will capture their attention and they will probably focus on that, rather than your lecture or your writing assignment. What can you possibly do?....
Love of Font Icons
Hundreds of Font Icons to Choose
At MyPost, there is no secret to our love of font icons. The reason that we love font icons is because they are fast loading and replace slower loading images, and with some code, or our simple BBCode, using font icons is easier than ever. As a blog poster or web designer, you already have a lot going on, from designing, to coming up with unique content, and sharing your post with the world....
Distraction-Free Writing
Write Without Distractions
At MyPost, we want to make your writing as easy and as comfortable as possible. You want to write and we want to help you write without any distractions. No matter what blog platform you use, no matter what computer you use to write with, and no matter where you choose to write, there are just way too many distractions, and we feel that even the text editor itself may be a distraction at times....
Removing the Headline
How To Remove The Headline
All of the features on MyPost can be completely customized. You are not limited to "our" way of doing things. We give you the complete freedom to control the things you want to be shown or not. When writing your post, you may want to hide the headline. While it is a requirement that you enter something into the headline, it does not necessarily mean you are stuck showing that headline. This tip will help you hide the headline in your post....
MyPost for Notes
Taking Notes with MyPost
When it comes to taking notes, the old fashioned way on a computer, you would normally open Notepad or Microsoft Word and write your document. Afterwards, you save your document and have it available on your desktop. The issue is that you might have a desktop, a laptop, a work computer, and a smartphone, and now you need to access that document. You happen to be at work and not home, so the document is on your computer at home, and you have no way to access it....
MyPost is now Encrypted!
MyPost is Officially Secure!
We are very excited and happy to announce that MyPost has been updated with certified encryption measures! It has long been known that when you go to a website, you type in the web address: http://www.thewebsite.com. If you were going to a website that accepted payments, such as Amazon.com or Ebay.com, you would enter through a secured connection. This secured connection, whether you typed in http:// or not, would take you to https:// and show a "Lock" symbol () on the address bar. This meant your connection was secure and that no hackers could interfere with the "connection" from your web browser to the website and back....
Removal of Google Analytics
Google Analytics Has Been Removed For Privacy
After creating and finalizing any website, we install the Google Analytics tracking code, which can be done in seconds. No second thought is ever given to it and it was only a matter of time before we had data about where our visitors were coming from, what pages they were visiting, or how long they stayed on site. Much more information than that including IP address, computers, browsers, screen sizes, etc. could be retrieved. Google Analytics offers enough data for anyone to understand their website.....
Known Issues and Bugs on MyPost
MyPost Bug and Issues Report
MyPost is an ongoing project and far from perfect. There are plenty of issues and bugs that we have known about and have already fixed, but there are others that we know about and have yet to fix, but are definitely on our list to fix. We have opened up the comment section so you can report these bugs as well.....
Footer Removed When Printing
MyPost Removes Footer When Printing
It only makes sense that when you go to print your post, you would not want the footer to be left in. There were certainly ways around it, such as hiding the footer itself, which you can do with MyPost advanced Custom CSS, but why should our users have to go through the trouble of writing the CSS to hide the footer when printing......
Captcha Added
Captcha Has Been Added To MyPost
If you have not already noticed it, we have added a captcha to MyPost. When we first designed MyPost, we had added a Google Recaptcha and were pleased, but after a while, of going back and forth, with testing, Google's Recaptcha endlessly kept popping up with pictures and even after a while of choosing correctly, it began to say that our choices were incorrect, therefore, we eliminated it completely, believing that people would treat MyPost accordingly.......
Share Your Posts
Why You Should Share Your Posts
When we created MyPost, we wanted a place to publish something on the Internet and have a URL to return to and see it. Whether we left notes for ourselves or others, or were working on a project, or doing something with HTML. It has come in handy and has become a tool for many people who have found a use and made great use for it. There are many things you can do with MyPost. However, there may still be a huge misconception that we want to clear up with you in this blog post right now.......
JavaScript No Longer Supported
MyPost No Longer Actively Supporting JavaScript
When we first designed MyPost, we wanted to give our users the full functionality of understanding what web design was like, including HTML and CSS. We also decided to later add support for JavaScript, believing this was something that has largely helped web design become what it is today. However, as HTML5 and CSS3 continue to advance, it is become more clear that things can easily be done without JavaScript.....
Uploading Service Revamp
MyPost Updates File & Image Storage Service
We recently upgraded our Image and File hosting services for those using MyPost. There are definitely pros and cons to this change we apologize for this inconvenience, this is the only way we can continue our hosting of images and documents.....
Text Support for RTL Languages
MyPost Adds Support For The Right-to-Left Languages
In order to accommodate and acclimate the entire world to using MyPost, we feel it is important to include the support for the Right-To-Left languages, which are Arabic, Hebrew, N'ko, Syriac, Thaana, Tifinar, and Urdu.....
Increased Font List
MyPost Has Increased Its Font List
When we created MyPost, the idea of the website was all about creativity and freedom of expression. With this came the ability to change font sizes, colors, and the fonts themselves. There are only about 10-15 standards web safe fonts, which is great, but with this comes limitation in how your content can look. Each font itself is unique and has its own distinct personality that might match your content or your own personality.....
Moderation of Mature Content
MyPost Moderating Posts for Mature Content
We created MyPost with the intention that it would be for all users and we are proud of what it is and what it has become. Our audiences range vastly from young teenagers to older professionals. We knew our goals in creating MyPost and we wanted to give users the complete freedom to do as they pleased with their posts. Before we created this website, we knew where it could lead, so we checked with our own web host to make sure that Adult Content was allowed. We even got on the Live Chat for our host and spoke with a representative of the company, who assured us that Adult Material/Mature Content/Pornography was okay to have on MyPost, so long as it was legal within the continental 50 states of the United States of America.....
YouTube Upgrade
MyPost Adds Instant Loading of YouTube Video
In our efforts to ensure that MyPost continues to load fast, no matter what you have on your post, we decided to look into YouTube videos and noticed that if you had more than just a few pages, they would take forever to load. YouTube's embed code is out of date and any website server must contact the YouTube server and wait for a reply to actually set the video. Regardless of whether it is in our own iframe or a YouTube-provided embed code, the amount of time it takes to load the video, whether the video status is active or not, it would take a long time. For every YouTube embed, we learned that it adds about 500 KB to the page size. By using some Javascript and CSS, we were able to reduce it to 15-30 KB depending on the amount of detail within the image, which is loaded directly from YouTube.......
Why Fonts Are Important
The importance of using fonts in your post.
When we created MyPost, we wanted to give you, the user, an experience beyond what you have known. An experience similar to WordPress and other blog platforms, but one where you did not have to register with an email address and give over too much information, all so that you could get a web page up on the Internet. We wanted you to have experience again with HTML, CSS, and BBCode. All of these would give you access to learn how to design your own web page.......
