Instructions for Contributing Content to wizdUUm.net

First and foremost, rest assured that contributors retain rights to any content they've authored.  By sharing it with the wizdUUm community, you give wizdUUm the right to display your writing/creation for the use of the wizdUUm community.

Anyone with a wizdUUm account can do the following without asking for admin permssion.

  • Post in the Forums
  • Post to their own private Blogs
  • Comment in the Forums, on Blogs, and elsewhere.

To share additional resources with the wizdUUm community, you must have a wizdUUm account and admin must have changed your user permissions to allow you to create further content. 

For most items on wizdUUm.net (including prayers, readings, rituals, sermons, recipes, original poetry, and words of reverence), use "article."  Click on "My Account" in the upper-right hand corner. Find the "Add content" link under the "Navigation" menu to the right, and click on that.  Select "article."  Once the create content page loads, indicate what type of resource you are creating (first choice below "body").  Fill in the title and put content in "body."  Please be sure to indicate a source if at all possible, whether the name of the author or the scriptural verse. 

  • For sermons, indicate who delivered the sermon, where it was delivered, and on what day, in bold, at the top of "body" field.  (See other entries as a model, if needed.)  If it is relevant to a topic, theme, (social justice) issue, or religion, select the appropriate choice(s).  The more terms you select, the more likely your content will be seen by others.  However, if you choose terms that are not relevant to you content, you will incur the wrath of the admins.
  • For Language(s) of Reverence entries, select "words of reverence" under "resources."  Also select a topic under "Theology" so that people can more easily find it.  (If nothing in the list fits your topic, please contact an admin and we'll be happy to add it for you, if approrpriate.)  If it is relevant to a topic or religion, select the appropriate choice(s).

To contribute a story (including stories from other traditions, UU Stories and UU Midrash), click on "Add Content" in the upper-left hand corner.  Select "story" (at the bottom).  Fill in the title and content.  Leave the the "Resource" field at "story."  If it is relevant to a topic, theme, (social justice) issue, or religion, select the appropriate choice(s).  The more terms you select, the more likely your content will be seen by others.  However, if you choose terms that are not relevant to you content, you will incur the wrath of the admins.

  • For UU Midrash, towards the bottom of the content creation page is an option called "Book Outline."  Click on that and select "UU Midrash."

To contribute a blog post to either of wizdUUm's community blogs (Unexpected Moments of Grace or Tips to Save the World), click on "Add Content" in the upper-left hand corner.  Select "blog entry."  Fill in the title and content. Select the community blog towards which you are contributing.  For 'Unexpected Moments of Grace' select 'Spirituality' under 'Topic' and then the appropriate 'Theme.'  For 'Tips to Save the World' select 'Social Justice' under 'Topic' and then the appropriate 'Issue.'

To contribute an image (including images of UU congregations or original artwork), click on "Add Content" in the upper-left hand corner.  Select"image."  Fill in the title and upload an image.  Give a description in the "body," if approprite.  Indicate the Image Gallery that you want this image to be added to. 

If at any time you need help, feel free to contact an admin.

Thank you for helping to enrich the wizdUUm community, and by extention Unitarian Universlism in the larger world.
