Register on ES
In order to participate in the Explore Superior community blog, you need to register to gain access to our WordPress dashboard. Once you’ve registered and become an official ES Blogger, you can create a post, comment on posts by other ESBS’ers (Explore Superior Blog Supporters), or even vote in an occasional Explore Superior poll.
The simplest way to log into the Explore Superior blog (henceforth referred to as ESB) is to log in through your Facebook or Twitter account. When you reach to the Registration screen, scroll down until you see the Facebook and Twitter icons, click them and follow the directions from there.
If you’d prefer to bypass Facebook or Twitter and register directly, follow these instructions:
- Click “LOGIN & POST” on the top menu bar.
- On the log in page, click “Register.”
- Answer the questions. (The “User Name” you choose will be the name that appears publicly on your posts and comments. Once registered, you can change your “nickname” at any time by going into your profile and enter a new one. Then your new nickname will become an option for use as your publicly displayed name.)
- Click on the box at the bottom of the page to accept the disclaimer.
- Click on the blue “Register” tab.
- After you’ve registered, check your e-mail inbox. There should be a message from “Explore Superior” with the subject “Your username and password.”
- Click on the link in your e-mail to verify your email and activate your account with Explore Superior.
- Now you’re ready to log in and become an ESBS’er.
As mentioned above, you could choose to register through your Facebook or Twitter account. To do so, simply click on the appropriate icon and accept the terms. (If you’ve already logged on, the icons will not be visible.)
Should you choose to log in through Facebook, be advised of the following:
- If you’ve already created an ESB account (by using steps 1 through 8 shown above) and the email address used for your Facebook account is different than the one you used to create your original ESB account, registering again through Facebook will create a new account.
- However, if your email address is the same on both accounts, they will sync as one account, and your Facebook profile photo will become your ESB avatar.
- If you have different email addresses and two ESB accounts, that’s okay with us, but your participation on ESB might become confusing to the other ESBS’ers. For example, when you log in through Facebook, your ESB identity and avatar will be your Facebook name and profile picture. Then if you log in using your other ESB identity, you may have a different name and avatar attached to your blogs and comments. This might be okay with you if you have a split personality, but for the sake of consistency, we recommend choosing one log in method and sticking with it.
- All of your posts will be archived using the identity that you’ve logged in with when posting. By using just one identity you can keep all of your insightful thoughts in one easy to find location.
