This is the standfirst, which should be in italic apart from the author’s name, which should be in Roman type, writes Edwin Smith [no full point at the end of the standfirst]

This is the first sentence of the body copy. Write this and all other body copy in ‘paragraph’. Try to include relevant hyper-links where you can, as this boosts SEO.

Between paragraphs of body copy, just hit ‘return once’. That should do the trick.

Most pages tend to be ‘image pages’, so remember to set a featured image. Other things to watch out for include remembering to un-tick the ‘Family Lawyer’ category box, which is automatically ticked, for some reason, and checking that the page has the appropriate author. The default setting is for it to be attributed to you, but this might not be right if you are uploading a piece written by someone else.

This is a subheading, and should be left-aligned and in ‘Heading 4’

Just hit return once after the sub-head and continue your body copy in ‘Paragraph’. This should also be left-aligned. Before inserting an image, hit ‘return’ so that there is a line-break between the copy and the image.

This is the image caption. It should be used to credit any copyright holders and to describe what is in the image. Make

After images, you will probably have to hit ‘return’ twice, so that copy in the caption and the body copy remain distinct, both in terms of spacing and formatting. The text of the caption should be much smaller than the text of the body copy. You can test this by clicking ‘Preview’ in the box to your right. (If you don’t use an image caption, the body copy can sometimes begin too soon after the image.)

Here is another sub-head in ‘Headline 4’.  This is also the way that we render Q&A interviews, isn’t it?

Yes, and then the answers appear directly below the question – like this.

If there were another question, or another subhead, it would be rendered like this.

And then the body copy or answer would appear below.

But we don’t always have questions, or subheads. In which case, body copy just runs on, from paragraph to paragraph, as in the below.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, volumus suavitate accusamus ei eos, tollit aliquip nonumes no cum, ne sit essent nominati mnesarchum. Aliquando necessitatibus cum ei. Omnes accusam instructior ius ei. Nibh placerat consetetur in nec, augue graeco fastidii ad duo. Ea quem prima ipsum quo, novum facete integre eum at.

Et clita munere persius eos, vim convenire erroribus rationibus ad, mutat aliquam antiopam ius id. Sonet fabellas assueverit est in, cu vix nostro omnium. Eu accusam complectitur quo. Nam ad ubique dolorum invenire. Tation laudem copiosae ex eos, in animal iuvaret quaestio ius.

We try to include as many good-quality images as possible. Apart from in exceptional circumstances, do not align or text-wrap images. It looks cleaner if they take up the whole column.

At the end of the piece, we sometimes have a short line to explain who the author is. This is rendered in ‘Paragraph’, but in italics. This isn’t always necessary.

Alternatively, (or in addition) we may include a credit and/or a website in Heading 5; website.com
[The following is also included in every web story, with links from Spear’s that are relevant or related to the story. Hit ‘return a couple of times so that there is a little space in between the end of the piece and the links.]
