How to use the EasyEditor: Step by step guide

EasyEditor: How is it better than the HTML+Markdown editor?

Travelfeed’s users can choose between two different editors: the HTML+Markdown Editor and the EasyEditor. While the HTML editor might seem a little bit tricky to the first time user, the EasyEditor is as simple as ABC and it offers some additional features, such as Easy Interlinking, Galleries, and Table of contents. Since the EasyEditor doesn’t require you to have any coding knowledge, it is absolutely perfect for everyday use.

All the HTML lovers and Steem / Hive users out there should keep in mind that using HTML or Markdown in a regular EasyEditor text block doesn’t work but it works in a Code block. Those who find it necessary to add a small HTML snippet may always do so by adding a Code block and pasting the code in it. Let’s discuss all of EasyEditor’s features one by one.

Table of contents

Displaying the table of contents is not supported by your current frontend. View this post on TravelFeed.io for the full experience.

EasyEditor features explained

Once you ‘Sign Up’ and login you may head to the ‘Dashboard’. Click ‘Publish’ to start a new post. It will take you to the publishing page where you will be greeted by several separate sections. While the first one is for the Title, the second one is the so-called EasyEditor section. This is where you do all the typing and editing. Keep in mind that it is a block-based editor, somewhat similar to WordPress Gutenberg, Divi, or Medium. Mostly because you may move any block up or down and place it anywhere you want.

Text

You might want to start by typing some text. The ‘Text block’ option is selected by default. All you have to do to add a new text block is to place the cursor in a new paragraph. Once you start typing a tiny 4-dotted button will appear on the right side of the block. Click on it and a few settings will pop up. These features vary in different types of blocks. In this case, you will get an option to move the Text block up or down or to delete it.

By marking some text and selecting one of these options you can make it Bold, Italic. Keep in mind that those who decide to use some content from outside sources must credit its author by adding a link to his article. In this case, the Link tool will be very useful too. Finally, the selected text may be easily converted to a heading, a quote, or a list in a split of a second.

Headings

Headings are used for three main reasons. Firstly, they show the text structure and guide readers through the article. Secondly, wisely-chosen headings help to improve SEO. Lastly, headings may help to improve accessibility as they are used for the generation of the table of contents. Since the title is already H1, we highly recommend using only H2 and lower-level headings.

Quotes

Quotes are often referred to as borrowed wisdom. A carefully selected quote may add a lot of weight to the point you’re making. The EasyEditor has a simple to use tool to add it to your blog post in as little as a couple of seconds. Simply click “+” and select “>>” to start a new Quote block. Finally, paste the quote inside the box and press “Enter”.

Lists

In some cases using the List tool may be useful. For example, if you would like to list “5 essential things that you must take on a trip”. The EasyEditor List tool allows you to choose between two types of lists: the numbered list and the bulleted list. While the first one may seem more suitable for making a more solid-looking list, the second one might create a more informal friendly feel. Follow the instructions in the picture below to add a new list to your post.

Images

Why should you add images to your blog post? You know how they say. These days providing value is not enough as there are thousands of articles on almost every topic in the world. Standing out won’t be possible without some good quality pictures. They make your article more engaging and interesting to read. Remember, quality is the key to success. To add a picture to your blog post, follow the instructions in the picture below.

Gallery

All images uploaded using the multi-upload block will be displayed as a gallery by default. It’s like a slideshow with thumbnails where you can go back and forth between images. You also have the option to change the view to the masonry mode, where we arrange the images next to each other in a fitting mosaic, combining vertical and horizontal images automatically.

Currently, we are limiting the number of multi-image blocks that can be added to one per post and within the multi-image blocks. If you want to have the images in order, make sure to save them with ascending numbers following the order you would like them to appear. If you decide to change the mode between ‘slideshow’ and ‘masonry’, keep in mind that the Preview tab will update as soon as something else is changed.

Delimiter

Adding a delimiter might seem logical when the story line jumps from one environment to another. It may also be used to split the signature part from the rest of the post and many other cases. Click ‘+’ and select ‘–‘ option to add a delimiter block in your post. It couldn’t get easier than that.

Interlinking Travelfeed articles

Interlinking your blog posts is very important for two main reasons. Firstly, it lets search engines easily crawl and index all of your articles. Secondly, internal links make it easier for your readers to navigate through your blog and find more content. Linking between two or more articles of the same website is a subject of science called Internal Search Engine Optimization. Long story short, better interlinking means more page views.
