In this article I want to show new Steemit members how to publish their first article easily. This is a short how-to without bells and whistles and only for the standart-editor. I think this tutorial is important, because many people without HTML-skills are thinking it is very difficult to write an article here, but it is not difficult...

[German] In diesem Artikel möchte ich neuen Steemit-Mitgliedern zeigen, wie sie ganz einfach ihren ersten Artikel veröffentlichen können. Dies ist eine kleine Kurzanleitung, ohne viel Schnickschnack und nur für den normalen Editor. Ich denke diese Anleitung ist wichtig, weil viele Leute ohne HTML-Kenntnisse denken , dass es sehr schwer ist hier einen Artikel zu veröffentlichen, aber es ist nicht schwierig...

I will show you how easy this could work now!
[German] Ich werde dir jetzt zeigen wie einfach das sein kann!

First you have to click on "Submit a Story" in the top right corner and then click on "Editor", if you don´t have any HTML-experience. This is the easy way for you and it´s like writing a text in Word, or to write an email.

[German] Als Erstes musst du am oberen rechten Rand auf "Submit a Story" klicken und wenn du keine HTML-Erfahrung hast, klicke dann auf "Editor". Das ist der einfache Weg für dich und es ist so wie einen Text in Word, oder eine Email zu schreiben.

Now you can write your title and the main text. In the last field you can add up to five tags/keywords, which fit to your article, separated by spaces. The tags are important that other people can find your article.

[German] Jetzt kannst du deinen Titel und den Haupt-Text schreiben. In das letzte Feld kannst du bis zu fünf Tags/Schlüsselwörter einfügen, getrennt mit Leerzeichen, die zu deinem Artikel passen. Die Schlüsselwörter/Tags sind wichtig, damit dein Artikel von anderen gefunden wird.

3. How to write in bold letters?

If you want to write something in bold, just mark the text you want to write bold and click on the "B" in the editor-bar above.

[German] Wenn du etwas fett schreiben möchtest, markiere einfach den Text den du fett schreiben möchtest und klicke auf das "B" in der Editor-Leiste oben.

4. How to write headlines?

If you want to write parts of your text in big headings, just mark the text parts and choose a heading format, as shown in the screenshot above.

[German] Wenn du Teile deines Textes in großen Überschriften schreiben möchtest, markiere einfach die Text-Stellen und wähle ein Überschrifts-Format, wie in dem Screenshot oben gezeigt.

5. How to add links?

If you want too add a link behind a text, just mark the text part, click on the link-symbol and paste the link in the field above.

[German] Wenn du einen Link hinter einen Text einfügen möchtest, markiere einfach die Text-Stelle, klicke auf das Link-Symbol und füge den Link in das Feld oben ein.

6. How to add pictures?

To add pictures, you have to click on the picture-symbol in the editor bar and add the direct image-URL. (Ending with .jpg, .png, or .gif) You can get it by right-clicking on your pictures at facebook for example and then "copy image url". You can use pictures from other sources too, but if it is not your own picture, make sure that you add the image-source under it, because of the copyrights.

[German] Um Bilder einzufügen, musst du einfach auf das Bild-Symbol in der Editor-Leiste klicken und die direkte Bild-URL einfügen. (Endet mit .jpg, .png, oder .gif) Du kannst sie zum Beispiel durch Rechts-klicken auf deine Bilder bei Facebook und dann "Bild-URL kopieren", bekommen. Du kannst auch Bilder von anderen Quellen nutzen, aber wenn es nicht deine eigenen Bilder sind, füge unbedingt die Bild-Quelle darunter hinzu, wegen den Copyrights.

7. How to use my own pictures, which are not already uploaded at facebook etc.?

 photo c926fd4a-a03e-417d-9b29-e1b7e6e3c198_zps6bgcwqnt.jpg

You can upload the pictures anywhere you want and then you just have to copy the image-url. I can suggest the free web-tool photobucket.com for example, which is also available as app-version to upload pictures directly from your smartphone too. After you created your free account, just upload your pictures there by clicking "Upload", as you can see in the screenshot below.

[German] Du kannst die Bilder überall hochladen wo du möchtest und dann musst du einfach die Bild-URL kopieren. Ich kann das kostenlose Web-Tool photobucket.com empfehlen, was es auch als App-Version gibt, um deine Bilder direkt von deinem Smartphone hochzuladen. Nachdem du deinen kostenlosen Account angelegt hast, kannst du die Bilder dort einfach über "Upload" hochladen, wie du an dem Screenshot oben sehen kannst.

Once you have uploaded the pictures from your harddisk, or smartphone, you can copy the image-URL at the right corner (or with right-click, "Copy Image-URL") and paste it in the field, as I showed in point 6. Of course, at first you have have click at the position in your text, where you want the picture to appear.

[German] Nachdem die Bilder hochgeladen sind, kannst du rechts an der Seite die Bild-URL kopieren (oder mit Rechts-Klick, "Bild-URL kopieren") und sie wie in Punkt 6 gezeigt, in das Feld einfügen. Vorher natürlich noch in die entsprechende Stelle in deinem Text klicken, wo das Bild erscheinen soll.

I hope this tutorial is easy to understand for new members and Im happy about your feedbacks!

[German] Ich hoffe diese Anleitung ist für neue Mitglieder leicht zu verstehen und freue mich über euer Feedback!

Best regards and hear you in my next article!
[German] Beste Grüße und wir hören uns in meinem nächsten Artikel!

Hi there, Many thanks for your invaluable tutorial. I just have one question, I'm trying to write poetry in the standard editor like you show above but I can't seem to get it into the right format and so it all becomes merged together. Can you give any advice, please?

In which format do you want your article?

Great post. Thank you. Upvoted and resteemed

Thanks to you @future24. Your article will help lot of new people to get the knowledge how to compose their articles. Very beneficial to the steemit platform.

Thx, for all the new members it's very helpful to have these simple instructions. Maybe they could also use StackEdit where it's much easier to edit an article because you get an immediate display of the result at the right side of the screen and it is stored automatically for later actions on the text.

Thank you @pery! Yes this is a great tool for people without HTML-skills.


Thank you @funnyman and yes: Steem On! :)

And it is possible to book lessons?
I would have been interested in money Stiim structure: they pay, far better to invest, vzaimoinvestirovanie.
Then related projects: the photo, cut the link, reviews and more.
Of course, there ip, but there is not very convenient, and it is not clear. Also part of the projects under some sort of source and / or does not work.
Beginner? :)

Thank you! :D For which topic you would book a lesson?

It is now happy to review scanned job applications around Stiim.
I've looked through a lot of material (the third day of study), and many have found, but strange in its entirety topics:

  1. Formation of earnings. How and where to move interest rates did not understand (translation quality can have Google?) As well as the value of the responses and the Census on earnings.
  2. Editors. There is a certain internal language other than html. Where to see it and the basic tags.
  3. Tags Stiim. How can I see those tags that Stiimmit not included in the right-hand column?
    Something like this...

I almost forgot:

  1. on the wallet. Ultimately just what it means to "deposit" in the "power? And the rest of the data on the wallet (what to do, how to better distribute and so on with them).

Am I allowed to share this article on FB?

Yes of course you can share it on FB @tanemahuta.

good post. i am currently building a website with simple instructions for steemit and think your post would be a good link to include on the site.

Great idea @pcste and of course I will be happy about including my link!

I am a complete beginner, so I read your article. I learned one thing: "Click on the editor". Thanks. I had been struggling with the HTML markup. I up-vote you for that.

Now I have two tips for other newbies, that I want to share:

Uploading photos:

If you don't already have an online photo, e.g. on your facebook page, then by far the easiest way to get a url to the photo is to use postimg.org. It requires no registration, no password, no email verification, and no details. Just click on "Select Photos", and the URL that you can use on Steemit appears immediately. Do be sure to use the SECOND link down called "Direct Link".

Re-sizing photos

My second tip is to do with resizing photos. They may be too big and you want a smaller one.

Normally an image comes up starting with "https://steemitimages.com/..." followed by a lot of letters and numbers and then the name of the file somewhere in there.

Add the following before it "https://img1.steemit.com/500x500/". You now have "https://img1.steemit.com/500x500/https://steemitimages.com/..." . Your image size is now 500 X 500 or whatever size you chose.


What I can't figure out, is how to change the colour of text.

Thank you for the article. I'm new to the site and this is helpful!

Much appreciated on the quick'torial.

Very well done and very helpful. Thank you. DAN-keh shoon

Thank you for the good article. I thought the Markdown/HTML was the best way to write effective posts, but good posts can still be written with this basic editor.

Hi, I have a question. Am I allowed to post a screenshot of an article from another site? Of course, I will provide the sources and acknowledgement on my post as well. Will that be okay?

It appears that Photobucket requires a storage fee, unless I want to share my photos with the world, with the smallest plan costing $34.99/year. Is this correct, or am I misreading the website?

Normally it is for free, but you can use this site to upload pictures for free too, because Photobucket is very buggy: https://picload.org/
