The Website Contribution Form makes it easy to contribute to ThenAndToday in just a few easy steps without having to learn new website skills.
To submit an article for publishing you will need to include the following:
Your Name – If you would like to be credited for your information include your name otherwise insert “Name withheld”.
Your email – You will need to include your email address in case we need to clarify information for the article. If you fail to include a valid email address there is a good chance that article will be deleted as spam.
Post Title – This will be your suggested title/description for your article.
Post Content – Include the text that you would like to include into your article. As this will be reviewed and edited if required before publishing you can include any notes to the editor if you wish. You should include:
– Where the article/photos is relevant to such an address etc,
– The source if known, of information and photos.
Upload an Image – JPG/JPEG images are the preferred image file but you can also send GIF and PNG. While we have tested files up to 6GB successfully, keep in mind that if you have a slow internet connection and a large number of photos that it could take a while to transfer after pressing the “Submit Post” button. Currently there is no status indicator to display the progress. If you wish to send files other then the above mentioned image files (such as pdf), the website contribution form currently does not support this and E-mail would be the preferred option.
It’s the detail, not the quality – You may think that your photo is worthless and that the picture is boring, but to some else the content could be of value. We are not looking for good composition and exposure of a photo for a competition, just for the reference and clues to our past.
Alterations are not good – Please don’t go altering the photo in programmes such as Photoshop unless you really know what you are doing to correct an image. Again we want to capture the original scene and alter it as little as possible.
Don’t forget to double check all your information including the email address and then press the Submit Post button.
When your form has successfully transferred the webpage updates and displays the following message “Successful Contribution – Thank you for your submission – to submit another article CLICK HERE”. You will be contacted via email within 7 days of submitting your article, so please contact us if you have not received a reply within 7 days.
