A video demo that shows how to write a blog post.
The steps in the demo are summarized in the following sections.
The video has saved some people quite a bit of time.
To create a blog post so others can view it, you must have a public place to put it. In Fargo, these public places are called named outlines.
Choose the New command from the File menu.
Enter a title, something like My Public Outline. Click OK.
Enter a little bit of text in the first headline, and click the Save button in the right margin if you don't have autosave turned on.
Choose Name Outline from the File menu. Your name must be at least 4 characters long, and be unique. You'll get feedback from Fargo as you enter the name. Click OK when you're ready. A dialog will appear to confirm that the name has been assigned to your outline.
The name that's assigned will be on smallpict.com, something like moose.smallpict.com. That domain will redirect to another location where your blog is stored.
There's a full explanation of named outlines in the Fargo section of the docs site.
Click on the big plus sign at the top of the left margin. Enter the title of your post, something like Welcome to my blog!
Indent by pressing the tab key, and enter the body text of your post.
Put the cursor on the top headline, click the Eye icon in the left margin.
Here's a screen shot that illustrates. The red arrows point to the + icon and the Eye icon.
When you click the Eye, a new tab should open in your browser, and with any luck you'll see your post.
Copy the URL from the title bar of the browser and send it to your friends.
When you make changes to the post they are automatically saved and stored on the server.
Write more posts in exactly this way.
That's all there is!
After Fargo builds each page, it stores a copy of the HTML text in a sub-folder of the html folder in your Small Picture app folder in Dropbox.
Here's a screen shot of the folder after writing the first post in the example above.
