From the left margin, navigate to Create > New Story





Storytelling Set-up 

  • Add a title (only used in back-end for identification) 
  • Set In Stream Ads (if applicable)
  • Click "Create a New Story" → This will take you to the Content Studio




Adding Content to your Story

Scroll through our "Introducing Storytelling" example below to see examples of content types you can integrate into your story. In the same way you create original content in ScribbleLive Engage streams, you can create original story content - or curate content from social media. Visit our FAQ section to learn which content types are supported in Storytelling.




Previewing Your Story

To see a full-screen preview of our sample story, click here.  You can always preview your own story by clicking on the Preview button located above the RTE in Content Studio:


Note:  When you first enter your Preview screen you will notice a yellow alert message along the top.  To remove this, simply click anywhere in the yellow banner and it will become hidden from view.





Publishing Your Story

Storytelling embed codes (script / iframe) are available from the Templates page. At the top of your story, navigate to Menu > Setup > Templates.



Alternative Publishing Method:  Template Only Option

You can also grab a Storytelling embed code from the Templates page for ANY Stream; just like you would for a Pinboard or Timeline. 

However, we highly recommend that you use the Create > Story workflow outlines above in order to benefit from the custom Content Studio "Story" interface. The custom storytelling interface includes a feature image button, preview button:
