How To Edit Notes

The My Notes menu option is at the top of the screen.

If the option is not visible, click on the three-lines button to pull-down the menu.

You will have to login if you are not already logged-in. Why is that? Because if you’re not logged in, then whose notes would you be editing? Anonymously-posted notes cannot be edited. You can only edit your own notes.

You can login and logout by clicking on the Sign in/out menu option.

There are a few filtering options available, for example, public vs. private notes. You can search by Keywords, etc.

Find your note and click the Edit link.

That brings you to the note Edit page.

the edit page

On the Edit page you can Delete, View, Save your changes, Cancel the request, add and remove links to photos.

Be aware that editing a note on your phone is difficult to do. If you have a lot of editing to do, then it's much easier with a full-sized screen and keyboard.

The editing options are the same, it's just that editing on a mobile device takes more patience and finger finesse.

Formatting options

PostEnotes use a markdown format.

Markdown is intended to be as easy-to-read and easy-to-write as is feasible. Readability, however, is emphasized above all else.

A Markdown-formatted document — or postenote — should be publishable as-is, as plain text, without looking like it's been marked up with tags or formatting instructions. While Markdown's syntax has been influenced by several existing text-to-HTML filters, the single biggest source of inspiration for Markdown's syntax is the format of plain text email.

Automatic Links

Markdown supports a shortcut style for creating “automatic” links for URLs and email addresses: simply surround the URL or email address with angle brackets. What this means is that if you want to show the actual text of a URL or email address, and also have it be a clickable link, you can do this:

    <http://example.com>

Markdown will turn this into:

    <a href="http://example.com/">http://example.com</a>

Images

    ![Alt text](http://path/to/img.jpg)

    ![Alt text](http://path/to/img.jpg "Optional title")

The images that you upload to PostEnote have their links generated automatically via a photo tag, for example: [PHOTO_1]. You can see that when you edit your note. You can move the photo tag up or down in the note, but the tag should remain on a line by itself. Text before and after the tag will be ignored.

It's okay to move image links around, for example to the top of the note, as opposed to leaving it at the bottom of the note which is where it's placed by default. But mucking with the link is just asking for trouble.

Remember to Save your changes.
