A Simple TextPattern Tutorial
Part 3 – Create some content.

Now let’s make some content. We are going to make three articles (writings). This looks like a lot of steps, but really you are
just doing the same routine 3 times. It isn’t hard!

1. Click on the content tab at the top. The write secondary tab should be selected for you. If not, click on the write secondary tab.

NOTE: Remember to save! If you in the middle of writing an content, and switch to another tab, your edits will be LOST!

2. You should see three empty boxes. The top little one is the title box, the middle is the content, and the bottom is the excerpt.
(we will not discuss excerpts).

3. Type “Test Article 1” as the title.

4. In the middle box, put in some content, whatever you want.

5. Save your writing. When you make a new writing, the button will say Publish. When you later edit it, the button with say Save.

6. Click on the secondary write tab at the top again. The boxes should be empty.

7. Type “Test Article 2” as the title.

8. In the middle box, put some content (different than Test Article 1).

10. After the screen refreshes, look at the bottom of the screen.
You will see a list, with “Test Article 1” and “Test Article 2” in it.
