new skills, better posts
A pay-per-post series dedicated to unlocking all the potential of the Yoors Advanced Editor
In Portugal we have the following saying: "Os olhos também comem". A very rough translation of it would be: "You also eat with your eyes", meaning that the aesthetic appeal of a dish is as much a part of the culinary experience as its taste.
I believe that saying also holds true outside of the kitchen.
When it comes to creating online content, presentation and usability are as important to generating reader engagement as the content itself.
This is why, no matter what type of content you bring to Yoors, learning how to use the tools and features of the Yoors Advanced Editor to their full potential will help you create better posts and encourage more people to read them.
Admittedly, the Advanced Editor is not without its complexities and quirks, but with some trial and error and a bit of practice it's possible to unlock its hidden and not-so-hidden strengths, making it work for you rather than against you.
In the hopes of bringing you some quality tips on how to do just that, I've recently started a multi-part tutorial specifically focused on the various features of the Advanced Editor. Based on the Editor's WYSIWYG approach and the in-built templates provided by Yoors, I'll help you explore the different settings and options available, while also explaining in simple terms some more technical concepts, so you can bring an extra shine to your posts with just a few clicks.
Each part of the tutorial focused on two features of the Editor and is divided into dedicated sections for easier navigation. Sections contain screenshots and and easy-to-follow instructions in text. On the screenshots, the relevant portions of the screen are highlighted in yellow and red, so you know what the text is referring to. The indications "left" and "right" are placed next to the text so you know which screenshot is being mentioned.
You can find part 1 and part 2 here:
While I've tried my best to create content that will be useful to both new and more experienced Yoorsies, I'm definitely open to suggestions on how I can improve the series and what content you, the reader, feel would be most interesting. Also, to the best of my ability I will reply to any requests for further clarification that you leave in the comments.
As indicated above, this is a pay-per-post series. The price for each part may vary but I'll always try to keep it reasonable, as the main goal is that as many people as possible have the chance to access these posts.
In that same spirit, I've created a small reward for the first 20 Yoorsies who are kind enough to share this post: in addition to my heartfelt thanks, you'll also receive 25 Yoors points.
As always, thank you for reading and have fun posting!
