What about copyright?

Please follow these rules on Howtoi:

Any photos uploaded must be taken by you actually completing the How To.

Ingredient lists for activities can be copied from elsewhere. They are considered factual.

Method text cannot be copied. Always use your own words when describing method, even if the method has not changed.

Howtoi assumes exclusive copyright of any text and images uploaded as part of a recipe.

If you would like to retain copyright leave a message for the editor on the article edit page. Payment will not be received for that article.

How do I include a link?

[LINK www.thelinkurl.com The Link Text]

How do I include an image?

Every Howtoi article needs at least one image. Adding them into your article is a simple process.

First you need to upload the images. Click on the 'Add Images' link, you can then add up to 4 images at one time. Make sure you update any changes made to your recipe before clicking the link.

Select the images from your harddrive using the Choose File button.

You can then also add any keywords for your image.

Once you have added all the files, click submit.

To use an image copy and paste the [IMAGEX] tag into the text. Replace X with the image number.

If I wanted to place my first image into the article, I would write [IMAGE1]. Make sure there isn't a space between IMAGE and the number.

If you want to add a caption, you just need to include it inside the tag like so: [IMAGEX My caption goes here.]
