WE LOVE THAT YOU ARE USING DOUGAL
We thought you might like some tips about how to get the most out of Dougal - how to build your profile, follow posts, add video......
ALL ABOUT YOU
SETTING UP YOUR DOUGAL PROFILE
Click on the Person Icon in the top right hand corner of Dougal.
Choose 'My Profile'. This is your personal profile page, showing just your posts.
Click 'Edit Profile'.
Click on your name to edit it.
Remove the full stops and add capital letters.
Click on the Person Icon and upload an image of yourself.
You can also click to add a background if you wish.
GETTING IT OUT THERE
CREATING AND SHARING
CREATE A POST
Give your post a title.
Enter the content of your post.
If you wish to add a hyperlink, enter the words you wish to link, highlight them, then click the Link Icon and enter the link you'd like to take people to.
UPLOAD A PHOTO
Simply click the Camera Icon. This will take you into your folders where you can select the image you want.
TO LINK A VIDEO
Before you can do this your video must have been uploaded to YouTube or Vimeo. Once that is done, to link it, simply click the play button on your post which will bring up a text box where you enter the address of your video.
DON'T MISS OUT
HOW TO FOLLOW POSTS
Would you like to receive an e-mail notification when someone creates a new post on Dougal? Yes? Then click the 3 dots in the top right corner of the main Dougal screen, then select 'Follow Category'.
FOLLOWING SPECIFIC POSTS
If you'd like to receive an e-mail notification when someone comments on a particular post which wasn't created by you, click on the 3 dots in the top right corner of that post and choose 'Follow Post'.
GETTING BACK HOME
GETTING BACK TO THE HOMEPAGE
When you are in a post and you'd like to get back to the Dougal Homepage, go to the top left hand corner of the screen and click on the first 'Dougal' which appears in lower case.
HOPE THAT WAS USEFUL
