SB Nation communities can use clippings.
Clippings help you to keep track of articles you want to feature in link roundups. Once you’ve added your clippings via bookmarklet or email, you can insert them into a story.
Use the clippings bookmarklet
- From your homepage, select Quick Admin (gear icon) > Editorial > Clippings.
- Drag the SB Nation Clipper bookmarklet to your bookmarks bar.
- When you come across an article you might want to link to in future stories, select the bookmarklet from your browser menu. You may need to log in to your Chorus account the first time.
- To quote a specific section of the article in your story, highlight it before selecting the bookmarklet—the highlighted text will automatically be added in the clipping notes.
- Edit the title and notes if needed—the story’s title and description will be pulled in by default.
- Select Add clipping to save it to add to a story later.
- Confirm your Chorus email address by heading to your profile and selecting Edit Account & Settings. Clippings can only be added when sent from the private email address connected to a Chorus account that has permission to publish on your site.
- To email a clipping, send the article URL you’d like to clip, along with any notes, to the email address for your community (follow the formula: blogURL@clippings.voxmedia.com). You can add up to five clippings per minute.
- As clippings are added, they’ll become available to insert into stories on your site. If you email a clipping that has already been added to your site, the old clipping will be updated automatically with any new notes or information.
Add clippings to a story
- On the Compose screen, select Clippings from the Insert menu.
- Search for clippings, filter to see clippings you’ve added, or to display clippings that have already been used.
- Select a clipping to see the full details, and then insert it into your story, or use the checkboxes to select multiple clippings and insert them all at once.
- Clippings appear on the Compose screen with the title linked back to the original article, along with the article’s description or your notes.
- Once a clipping has been inserted, it will be archived automatically; search for archived clippings to include it in future stories.
