How to get rid of ads

     Ads are gross and we hate them. We're using them to make our site sustainable. If you want to browse Poeticous free of horrible ads, just make a small monthly pledge. Any amount will do. It's good karma and you'll be supporting poetry. Thanks!!!

Search tips

We have programmed a few search operators that allow you to refine your search. The operators are:

in:enSearch for poems in English
has:mediaPoems with Youtube videos or cover photos
has:analysisPoems with analysis
has:translationPoems that have a translation into Spanish
by:proWritten by classic or profesional poets
by:maleWritten by male poets
by:femaleWritten by female poets

For example, a search for

love     has:analysis     has:translation     has:media

will return all the poems that contain the word "love", that have an analysis, a Spanish translation, and have Youtube videos or cover photos.

How to message other members

     It's easy: go to the page of the person you want to message and click the little envelop below the person's name. Then, type your message in the box that appears in the cover-photo area and click the arrow below the right corner to post it. The message will be there for the recipient to read when he signs in.

     To reply to a message posted in your page, click the reply button at the right end of the text box. It will take you to the sender's page where you can type your reponse and post it.

How to change your cover photo

     There's a little camera right below the Poeticous logo, on the top-left corner of the page. Click the camera and select whether to pick a picture from our album or to upload your own photo. After the photo has been selected, drag it to adjust it if needed, click the check mark in the bottom-right corner and wait for the file to upload. Then, apply a filter if you want and click the new check mark.

     For better results, use high definition images that are at least 1000 pixels wide. A great source of wonderful images, royalty free, is www.unsplash.com. Just go there, search what you want, download it to your computer and upload it to your profile or your poems in Poeticous.
