How do I create a post?

To start a post from scratch, tap the "+" button at the Ripl home screen. On the desktop app you'll be taken directly to the "Customize" step. On mobile, this will pull up the "Create A Post" step, where you can pick your post size, as well as add photos, video and text to be included in your post. 

Post Size:

You can share a square (1:1), vertical (9:16) or landscape (16:9) post with Ripl. You can select your post size by tapping the 3 dots above your keyboard, then selecting the post size above the keyboard on the right side. We recommend using vertical posts for Instagram Stories and Facebook Stories, landscape posts for Facebook Cover Videos, YouTube and LinkedIn and square for Instagram Feed, as well as for sharing across more than one platform. 

Adding Photos or Video:

You can add media to your post from your camera roll, Dropbox, Google Drive, My Files app or search for media files on Shutterstock from within the Ripl app by tapping "Add Photos or Video." 

Adding Text: 

You have the option to add primary or body text. To add body text, tap the three dots above your keyboard, then "Add Body Text." 

Adding A Website: (mobile only) 

If you want to start a post with a website, check out this article about using the "Create Post From A Webpage" field.

Once you've picked your post type, size and added text and/or photos, tap the ">" in the upper right corner to proceed to the "Customize" screen where you can customize your post. 

Something to keep in mind: The "Create A Post" step is only available on mobile. For the web app, adding media, text and selecting post size is available on the "Customize" step.
