We invite anonymous additions to Story Chip but there are some restrictions. Only members can upload files, edit pages and add comments. You can login with your Facebook user name and password or create an account here at Story Chip.
Enter a working title in the create page box above. Page titles can be edited or deleted after the page has been saved. What you enter on this page just starts the process.
Writing the Story
You can cut and paste your story from your word processor into the Story Chip editor or enter the story directly to the editor. Pages can be edited at any time, so you can polish your writing as long as the story is on Story Chip.
Tags are helpful to other readers but you can leave them out if you like.
After you your story has been saved to the web site, you can click the box marked "Tags" at the bottom of the page. This will open a dialogue box for you to enter words that will identify your story in our tag cloud and make searching for similar stories easier. Each word you use should be separated by a space and you can use as many as you like. Some tags need more than one word as in a story about a good dog. This tag would have to be entered with either an "_" or a "-" for the two words to stay together. So, type in "good_dog" or "good-dog".
There are wizards in the editor to help adding images to your story. First, log in to Story Chip either with your log in name or use your Facebook log in name and password. Next, follow the on screen instructions to upload your file. Finally, use the wizard to place the image where you want it on the page.
Adding Audio or Video
You can add MP3 audio files or Flash flv files to pages on Story Chip. Follow the on screen instructions to upload the file after you have logged in using your Story Chip or Facebook log in name and password. Paste the following code into your story where you want the audio to appear. Remember to change the name of the page and the name of the file to have your MP3 play properly.
