The TradeCast platform allows you to present your audience with your uploaded videos as on-demand content, but you can also offer them in the form of a Post. A Post is a written message - similar to a traditional blog post - on your video platform. You can provide a Post with formatted text, hyperlinks and even images. The basis of a Post is always a video or image file uploaded to the CMS. Posts can be arranged and made visible on the frontend of your video platform via the CMS.
Adding and writing a new Post can be done from the CMS, under the button 'Media'. An overview of all written articles can be found under the button 'Posts':
Adding a Post to an uploaded video or image
Clicking on the three-dot sign (...) of a video in the Media Overview, allows you to then click on 'Add Post'. You will then be presented with a text editor to provide that particular video or image with a Post. A Post can be based on a video, but you can also upload an image via the 'Media' menu and then add a Post to it.
After you have indicated from which moment the Post should be visible, you can start writing. Different formatting options are available, which you might recognize from online editors like Wordpress and word processing programs like Word and Pages. At the bottom of the page you can check whether you want viewers/readers to be able to leave a comment underneath the Post. You can also save your Post here:
Visibility of a Post
Your Post will become visible under the name of the on-demand category associated with the video that forms the basis of the Post. You can find the Posts on the homepage of your video platform's web-based frontend, under the hamburger menu at the top right. The menu that unfolds when you click the hamburger menu shows two rows of pages: 'Vlogs' (the name the platform automatically gives the Posts overview and 'Service'. These terms can also be renamed and the visibility of the button for guiding viewers to your Articles can also be adjusted. To do so, please contact your TradeCast Support contact via firstname.lastname@example.org.
