Articles

Articles in your Mighty Network are like rich blog posts. You can format text, add photos, embed videos hosted on YouTube, Vimeo, or Facebook, add Soundcloud audio embeds, include file attachments, and more. Then, you can add your finished Article to a Topic or to your Featured Section to keep everything organized for your members.

To create an Article, choose the + button and select the option to create an Article. On the web, this button will be at the top of the page. We don't yet offer the option to create an article from the iOS or Android mobile apps.

Within the post editor you can add an unlimited number of photos, embed videos that live on YouTube, Vimeo, or Facebook, embed SoundCloud audio files, and add file attachments (individual files are limited to 25mb each).

Format text

Highlight text that you’ve written in the full post editor to adjust the formatting, add a header or create links.

Add rich media

Press enter to start a new line of text, and use the + button along the left to open up the options to add a photo, embed a video, embed audio, add a file attachment like a PDF, or include a section divider.

If you are embedding a video, you can choose to paste in a link for a video that's already hosted on YouTube, Vimeo or Facebook. You can paste in a link to a Facebook Live video that is happening in real-time on your public Facebook page.

If you are embedding audio, you can paste in a link for an audio file that's already hosted in SoundCloud. Here's a quick video that shows off how to add a SoundCloud file.

 

Here's a short video video that shows off how to create a fully formatted Article in a Mighty Network:

 

Add a published article to your Featured or Welcome Section

On the web, you can use the three dot menu in the upper right corner to pin a published post to your Welcome Section or your Featured Section.

Manage or reorder the posts in each of these sections by going to Network Settings > Content.

 

Access drafts of your Articles

When you're creating an Article, the form will auto-save any drafts you're working on before they are published. To access your drafts on the web, just click on your Profile Image > Your Drafts

You can also share a link to a draft with another Host by navigating to Drafts, opening up the draft of an Article, and copying the full URL that you see in your browser.

One important note on drafts: While you can always edit your own post after it has been published, updates made while editing an already published post will *not* be auto-saved in drafts.

 

Choose whether or not you want to notify all members about your post

If you are a Host in your Mighty Network, every time you add a new post, question, poll, or Event, you have the opportunity to also send a notification to all of your members about the new content you just added. 

After you hit "Add Post," you'll be prompted to choose whether or not you want to let everyone know about your new post.

If you choose not to send a notification, your post will simply show up in the feed and members will find it via search or in the Topic you've assigned the post to.
