Code4Lib Journal WordPress Input Guidelines
Please follow the guidelines below when creating or editing Code4Lib Journal articles in WordPress. Enter all articles as "Posts".
Title, including the subtitle, goes in the "Title" field.
The body of the article goes in the "Post" field. The top-level header (
<h1>) is used for the title of the post, so start with second-level headers (
<h2>) for sections of the article. Any header from second- to sixth-level may be used as appropriate. Use HTML markup appropriately and semantically, e.g.,
<em> for emphasized text,
<strong> for strongly emphasized text,

While you are editing the article, there is a box labeled "Optional Excerpt" a little ways below the "Post" field. Put the abstract here. Use HTML markup as appropriate.

We would like to provide COinS information with every citation. To put this information in, open the Code tab, put the cursor before the citation, and click COinS. Enter the appropriate information.
Start off each article with a paragraph stating the name(s) of the author(s). Something simple like "By Jonathan Rochkind". If desired, the author's name can be a link to something appropriate.
End each article with a second-level header that says "About the Author(s)", then give a short paragraph about each author.
