I try to get to all Planet Lotus requests as soon as possible however a request like this moves right up the queue... in this case, processed right away.
The idea is simple, write a quality piece on anything Lotus and see if it has what it takes to win praise from Captains of our Industry.
Think about it, you might not have the skills to bust through the defensive line of the New England Patriots or score a goal on Manchester United, but surely you can get an article through the Lotus equivalent?
Notes for Authors:
1. All drafts are private, viewable only by the author and the editor-in-chief.
2. Pending articles are only seen by the edit staff.
3. Published articles will be highlighted everywhere and you will be permanently added to the "Published Authors" page. (I will soon be removing myself from this page).
Notes for Editors:
1. A "Voting" link has been added to the Journal front page to make getting to the voting booth easier.
2. The voting RSS feed is live. It will alert you of new content to vote on (available on the voting page).
3. Your services are required, an article is currently watiing your comment or approval, check it out.
Lastly, big props to Daniele Vistalli for being the first to submit an article which I hope everyone will be enjoying soon.... and also to Ulrich Krause for adding some comments to Daniele's contribution.
Sorry in advance if the title offended anyone.
Since there is no option to do this in the page itself you have to use a page template.
1. Create a file called redirect_twitter.php with the text below and save it to your theme folder (/public_html/wp-content/themes/yancytheme/redirect_twitter.php).
<?php /* Template Name: Redirect Twitter */ header('Location: http://twitter.com/yancylent'); die(); ?>
If you plan on making more redirects the file name starting in redirect will ensure they all stay together.
2. Create the page, and choose the 'Template Name' Twitter Redirect.
3. Save, done, test, done.
*Note that if you change your theme you'll have to move the redirect page templates. I tried adding the templates to higher level folders but they aren't picked up, so this manual process is needed.
**Also, no messing with the .htaccess.
