To create a Post in your Community, click the +CREATE button in the upper-right hand corner of your Community page (just above the Feed). Give the Post a title and write some content. You can also use parts of the Post Toolbox to add different forms of content.
If points are enabled in your Community and today's date is between the grading start and end date, the yellow bar at the bottom of the Post editor will gradually move to the right as you type. This bar indicates how close you are to reaching the word minimum for earning points, which is set by the Community Owner. When you have reached the word minimum, the bar will turn green, and the number of points you will earn upon submission will appear just above the bar. To submit your Post and earn points, click the POST button.
The rich text toolbar, which is below the post title field and above the post body field, allows you to format your content in various ways. The toolbar options, from left to right, are as follows:
- Font size
- Font color
- Highlight color
- Numbered items
- Bulleted items
- Insert hyperlink (must highlight text to add hyperlink)
- Insert indented quote
- Insert code block (hit "Enter" three times to exit block)
- Insert formula using LaTeX code
