How To Do It!

Part of the fun of participating in Atheist Nexus is writing posts, blogs and comments, sharing our experiences and what we've read and seen elsewhere on the internet.  The problem comes in that not all of us know our way around the mechanics of manipulating an editing box to get a desired result, or using html tricks to format text in a certain way to get a certain look.

In this group, I hope to give some basic instruction in how to do things like embedding a link in text, inserting a picture or a video, or making other modifications to our contributions to Atheist Nexus.  I also invite others who very likely know far more about html code than I do to offer their tricks of the trade.

The point of all this is to empower anyone who is interested in doing MORE with Atheist Nexus.  I hope this helps, that's all.

If you'd like to experiment with just what works with NING (the foundation on which A|N is built), you might want to have a look at The Sandbox.

Very groovy, Beverly.  All I know about html is what I can parse out of what little code I see here and elsewhere.  Mostly this is just a group to teach people how to use some of the features of Atheist Nexus, but any input on that topic is more than welcome.
