Add an Image to Your Site

A recent WordPress update has made it easier to add and edit images. To get started, open an existing Post or create a new Post or Page. To Insert an image, place your cursor where you would like to add the image; next click add media buton . You can upload new images, use existing images from your Media Library or enter a URL for an image – remember you must have permission to use the image.

Once you’ve selected an image you can add a Title, Caption and Description.

Here’s what you’ll see

To resize or edit –  click the image to reveal editing tools.

The image is a little small, so using the editing tools as shown above I can increase the image size by grabbing the handles to drag the image to desired height and width.

Traveling? Don’t forget to pack your RedRush!

Using the editing tools I was able to increase the image size, center the image and change the caption.

Now you give it a try and feel free to send us an email (myaimstore@aimintl.com) or give us a call (1-800-477-4246) if you run into any problems.

Easy Ways to Personalize Your Site

Ready to personalize your site?

At the dashboard select MyAIMStore 2.1.  Select Member Info – the Member ID, E-mail and Name should already be entered but can edited at any time.  Why not add your phone number and location?  After updating, changing or editing the content scroll to the bottom of the page and click on 

You can also change the Theme Stylesheet aka Background Color, to do this make sure you are still logged in at the dashboard select General Settings then click the drop down box at Theme Stylesheet and choose a new color.

Change the background from the default theme color Green

default-css

To Bubbles€ Rainbow

Or Dark Blue

Dark Blue

After selecting the new Theme Stylesheet aka Background color  savechanges .

Upload a New Featured Image

Next, do you have an image you’ve been saving for a special occasion? How about using it as your Featured Image? Before uploading make sure the image is 465 x 380 px otherwise WordPress will scrunch or stretch the image to make it fit and you might not like the results.  If the image needs to be resized – use the computer program Paint or the online web app  Pixlr.com.

Again, remember you must be logged in to the dashboard.  With your image sized to 465 x 380 in hand or better yet added to your media library or saved to your computer Select Homepage then click upload.
