Help with bloggingCan I use Word as my editor?
Yes. Keep your formatting simple, don't use tables and you should have no problems pasting your content into the edit pane using the special paste from Word button.

My formatting goes when I paste!
There are some restrictions on what you can do in terms of layout within the editor. Anything that could potentially break the site is stripped out - and this includes tables. You can use bullets, italics, bold and strikethrough, but you can't change the font face or colour. Follow the link from your home page when you login for more help on editing.

Issues with my profile photo
To successfully upload/crop a photo your system must have javascrip enabled and you must be using a computer. You will be unable to crop using a mobile device due to the nature of their pinch/zoom functionality. You are able to upload a photo upto a size of 4mb. Once you have uploaded this photo you will be able to crop your photo to fit the width/height dimensions for the profile photo.

Something not working?
Please email us at and we'll look into it
