The newest video in the series I'm working on... Linking to an Item. We know this is such a common question, so I wanted to showcase this simple Writing.Com tool. Hopefully, this will make it a lot easier for people to not only understand, but help point folks in the right direction to learn how to do it.

*Clapper* Video: Linking to an Item

Also, note that in "Writing.Com 101, we've now included a link in the Table of Contents to Writing.Com Tutorial Videos (Vimeo), which will take you right to our page on vimeo.com. Our page there will house all of our tutorials, so bookmark it (or don't, since it's in 101). Smile

Hope you are finding these helpful... more to come! Next up, Full Screen Edit for Premium Memberships!

NEW!
Have you seen the new Request a Review page linked in the "Things To Do & Read" menu? It's the perfect way to find a reviewer or few! (It's also linked from your new "Item Tools" drop down menu on any of your individual items.)

Want to earn a Merit Badge? Go to the Request a Review page and request a review. Then, head to The StoryMaster 's Notebook (http://www.writing.com/main/profile/notebook/storymaster) and comment with an {item:} tag to the item you used in your request. He'll dish out Courage merit badges to anyone who completes this task by Sunday @ 11:59pm WDC time!

Want To Be Included?
Notice the look of that Request a Review page... you might want to make sure your own "Reviews" tab is filled out so that you show up on that page. The only members that will rotate on there are the ones who have their "Review Style" completed on their "Reviews" tab! Smile

Enjoy!

*Heart* Happy Valentine's Day! *Heart*

Each year, we run a Romance/Love Costumicon subscription period for February... but I just realized we never opened that up!

So, I've set Costumicons up for another 100 Gift Point subscription that will last thru February 28th.


* For those not familiar with costumicon subscriptions, please note: They are temporary. The purchase grants the purchaser or giftee the use of costumicons until February 28th. At that point, the subscription ends end it's back to a regular portfolio case. Full time access to costumicons is reserved for our members with a paid Premium Membership or above.


Best wishes,
~~SM

Now, you can add some life and color to your portfolio headers, using your own E-rated image or one of our Writing.Com stock covers! Just head into the "Manage Portfolio Header" area within your portfolio and you're on your way to personalizing your space!

We've also given this area and your Biography tab a bit of a face lift. We love these little changes that make a big difference in the way your writing is presented... we hope you do, too! We are looking forward to seeing how everyone dresses up their ports.
