Go to the MRR Radio Archives page and click on the show you want to post. Select and copy all of the text shown here:

selectarchivetext


Go back to WordPress and paste the text into the main window. Be sure you are in HTML view, not Visual when you paste the text.

At this point, scroll to the top of the text and copy and paste the show title into the top field. Make a space-bullet-space between the show number and the date. Here's a bullet for you to copy-and-paste • (On a Mac you can type option-8)

Switch to Visual mode instead of HTML

For the line that goes “MRR Radio #1128 2/22/09 DOWNLOAD”, make it read “DOWNLOAD MRR Radio #1128” (no date).

Select the “MRR Radio #1128” part and click the “insert/edit link” button (looks like a chain!)

Paste in this URL, but change it to the appropriate show number at the end:
http://radio.maximumrocknroll.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/mrrradio1128.mp3

Set target to “Open link in a new window” and click Insert


Select the first paragraph and style it bold and italic with the B & I buttons above the text. All of the set titles get styled bold (“Intro song:”, “Rob – New jams from Israel”, etc.)

Next, click on the Edit button after the Permalink under the Title at the top. Type in the show number in the style shown (“mrrradio____”) and click Save.

The last step involves the Publish pane, and you can actually do this at any time during the process. Click on Edit right after “Publish immediately” and change the date to the date of the radio show (the time doesn't matter).

Click “OK” then click Preview to check that it looks OK.

If it's OK, go back to WordPress and click Update Post.

You're done! Contact the Web Coordinator at webzine@maximumrocknroll.com if you have any trouble.
