I've had a lot of people ask me how they can have a custom resource box on articles at www.IdeaMarketers.com - a resource box that isn't the same as the default one they've entered on their writer profile. Up until now there hasn't been an easy way to do it other than to type the resource box at the bottom of the article text, but then the default resource box still showed as well. I've also allowed people to sign up for multiple writer accounts to have certain topics posted under one account and other topics under another account.
I just finished programming a better solution. Now you may assign a different
- Email address,
- Photo, and
- Resource Box
for each article. I still recommend making your writer profile as generic as possible so that it can easily apply to as many of your articles as possible. Ideally, you'll override this profile at the article level as little as possible. Why? Because the writer profile is easier to make a change once and it will automatically update on any article that hasn't had this information overridden.
But if you need an article's information to be different you can change any combination of the name, email, web address and resource box for an individual article. The system will show you what you have in your profile and you should only change the information that needs to be changed on the article level. Don't change more than you need to.
Bear in mind that for any article you've assigned a different email, web address, name or resource box to, you'll have to make changes to this information on the article level. If you don't assign the information on the article level, you'll just need to change it in the writer profile. Writer profile settings will automatically appear on all articles that haven't been overridden.
To modify a resource box for an individual article, just log into your Writer account and then go to Edit/View articles on the menu. There will be an edit link out to the right of each article. Click that and you'll be able to enter the information.
