Once you’ve signed up for an account, head to community.buzzfeed.com/post. Creating a post can be done on a desktop or laptop.
Here you’ll see our CMS, aka our “Content Management System,” aka your draft. It’ll look like this:
Add your headline and description to your quiz. Then, select the type of quiz you’re looking to make. In this instance, select “Poll.”
🚨 Don’t forget to hit “save” throughout your entire quiz-making process! This ensures your masterpiece won’t get lost. 🚨
Once you’ve opened the quiz maker, add your questions and answers following the steps below.
Next, press this button to save! This ensures none of your work will get accidentally deleted. You’ll only be closing the box you’re working in, not the entire page.
Once you’ve saved this, also hit the “save” button in the upper-right-hand corner of your draft.
To add more questions, you simply start the above process again and follow the steps until you’ve added them all! Again, don’t forget to hit “save” in the upper-right-hand corner of your draft throughout your quiz-creating process.
While adding your questions and answers, you may notice this box titled “Question Style” pop up on the right-hand side. This tool allows you to change the colors and font sizes and types within your poll.
Below is a step-by-step guide on how to use this tool. The numbers in this image correspond with the text below the image to help you out!
How to use the color and font tool:
To start, add your question and select the font and style of your lettering. Click on the icon of a photo in the bottom-right-hand corner.
Select an image from your computer and upload it. After you do so, the image will show up behind your text. You can also select “overlay text” in the Question Style box (explained above). This will put the text above the image as opposed to over the image.
Then add sources to your photo. For steps on how to do this, head to our simple Photo Resource Guide.
