Create a Post in the Content Studio

Posts are created in the Rich Text Editor (RTE). Our Rich Text Editor gives you multiple formatting options, allowing you to create visually appealing and engaging articles. There are multiple ways to create a post:

  • Enter original content in the RTE, including text and uploaded images
  • Add social content to the RTE from the Search Content panel using the "Add to text editor" button
  • Drag content (comments, social content, etc.) from the Moderation Hub or Social Hub into the RTE
  • Enter a URL or embed code into the RTE and add commentary
  • You also have the option of publishing immediately to the stream, scheduling content or sending the post to the Mod Hub to publish later on

The following formatting options are available in the Content Studio's Rich Text Editor:

Bold Clear Formatting Alignment/Justification Undo and Redo Expanding Content Editor

Paste a URL into the Rich Text Editor to encourage readers to visit a certain webpage. If an image is part of the OG meta tag, pasting the URL will result in an image preview, a link to the original article, and an editable article description.
