These are the Guidelines for Style and Design consistency on this CSP website.
Please follow them so that we might maintain our brand and visual aesthetic.
The Post Title
Use both upper and lower case characters in the post’s title. All caps shout and are difficult to read.
Make the title short, yet meaningful. It is also displayed in the sidebar.
CSP or California Society of Printmakers is not needed in the title.
Dates are not needed in the title.
Please size any images before uploading to a maximum of 1000 pixels wide.
Please attribute and title each image meaningfully upon upload. This can be done in the Media Library at any time.
If images are uploaded, but not actually used in the post, please delete them from the Media Library.
Please DO NOT use the CSP logo as an image in the post. This is overkill and dimishes the brand and aesthetic of the website. It is fine to post without an image.
Unless the post’s text is exceptionally long, Please copy and paste it into the Excerpt box. This is found under the Document settings to the right of your screen. The reason for this is so that site visitors may read it without having to click for more. The theme we are using does not allow for our own placement of the Read More button.
Please spell check and proofread.
Our theme centers the text.
Please follow style and usage that you see in the earliest posts.
Please spell out months and do not repeat them if a span of time is within the same month.
