leave a comment »

Please use the following outline to submit an entry for an architectural engineering firm:
Thank you!
-GB

TIP: WHEN WORKING IN THE WORDPRESS POST INTERFACE: USE THE ‘HTML’ TAB TO SEE YOUR WORK INSTEAD OF THE ‘VISUAL’ TAB.
This will avoid a bug in the Visual tab that does not allow single space for many people. SEE BOTTOM OF THIS POST FOR TIPS (this is included).

Okay, here’s the requested format:

ENTRY TITLE
(large title at top of ‘Edit Post’):
Option 1: Last Name, First Name – Firm Name
Option 2: Firm Name

BODY OF ENTRY

Put an image here: either a photo of the engineer featured or a company logo. Choose ‘Thumbnail’ size when inserting image into post.

Name (repeat name as shown in Entry Title – select ‘b‘ tool to make text bold)
Main Office: (give location – full address would be preferable for main office)
Additional Offices: (skip this if not applicable) (list locations by City and Country as needed – use stacked list if more than one additional office)
Number of employees: (skip this if can’t determine)

Engineering Specialties: (use stacked list if more than one specialty)
Structural
Mechanical
Accoustics
etc.

Selected Projects:
(show series of small images here – ***be sure to paste the URL where you got the image into the ‘Link URL’ location and use MEDIUM size, none (alignment) – CLICK ‘Insert into Post’ AFTER EACH INDIVIDUAL IMAGE and use one Return (Return, not Space…) in between each inserted image in your HTML. Be sure to include the name and location of the building as shown. If you can hotlink the buildings back to the URL in AEWORLDMAP.COM., that would be best (as in 2nd image title, below). See the ‘Add an Image’ picture at the bottom of this entry to clarify URL placement and image size. It should end up looking like this (with different images) Please limit this section to a MAXIMUM OF 6 IMAGES. You may add Additional project images at the bottom of the entry.

Building Name, City, Country

Things to mention:
When the firm was founded, who founded it, what projects were important early works, how the firm evolved/grew, what the firm is doing now.

Spotlight: Engineer Name
(use this for paragraph(s) that focus(es) on a particular person if applicable)
Things to mention:
When was the engineer born, where, where did they go to university, how did they get started in the profession, anything noteworthy along the way that you might want to include, quotes, etc.

TIPS:
In this screenshot, notice the two tabs for ‘Visual’ and ‘HTML’ – work in HTML to type any text, add images…you can check it by clicking ‘View Post’ when you are done and then ‘Edit’ to return to the Edit Post interface.

Here’s what your ‘Add an Image’ interface should look like: Note the ‘Link URL’ to where I got the image and the image size / alignment settings.
