How To Post to JETAANY

Jetaany.org uses the WordPress blogging system to post events, news, and other relevant information. Everything posted to the website, Other Japan-related events forum, and jobs forum is automatically added to the announcements.

Trusted members of jetaany.org are able to post to jetaany.org. This keeps the community robust, diverse, and active. The website is moderated by the Webmaster and Secretary who approve what content gets posted.

What can I post?

Posts must be related specifically to JETAANY. If this is a Japan-related event you are not involved with, please post to the Other Japan-related events forum. If this is a job, please post to the Jobs forum.

Examples of acceptable posts:

  • Official JETAANY events that do not require a PayPal Link (ie: Book Club, Happy Hour, etc)
  • If you’re unsure, please email secretary@jetaany.org for more information

Step 2: After you register, email webmaster@jetaany.org or secretary@jetaany.org requesting “Author” status. This will allow you to post your own events/news to jetaany.org as long as they do NOT require a PayPal link. For posts requiring a PayPal link, please send your post directly to secretary@jetaany.org.

Step 3: Go to Dashboard and “Add New Post” or use the “Quick Post” box. This can be accessed right after you login, or at any time while browsing the website by mousing over the blue “W” in the upper left hand corner. See image C & D.

(Image C) Step 3: Adding a new post. There are three places to choose from.

(Image D) You can also mouse over the blue W from any page on jetaany.org as long as you are logged in.

Step 4: Create your post! See image E.

  • TITLE: Like writing an email, keep your title short, snappy, and eye-catching. This is what draws readers to your entry.
  • BODY: The first 100 characters get displayed on the main page, so use this time to summarize and draw people to the main entry.
  • CATEGORIES: Select a Category for your post. If you are unsure, press “Uncategorized” and the Secretary will judge for him/herself. (To select the “events” category, see “How to Add Events” below)
  • FEATURED IMAGE: If you have a special one you want to use, upload one. Or, feel free to browse the Media Library for some generic images.

Please see below for more details on how to insert images and featured images.

Step 5: Press Publish! Hurray, it’s on the Internet! See image E.

Or, if you’re scared, Press “Save Draft” and allow a moderator to make necessary changes or edits before it goes live.

(Image E) Step 4 & 5: Like writing an email! Press "Publish" when you're ready.
