That is just how it is. It takes a while to get the hang of it. The best thing to do is just play around with a poem. Change it, move it, ad spacing, center it, etc. That way you can look at it each time in the "New Poems-All" area and see how each change you make, reflects in the poem that everyone sees

Hi Lori, Did you perhaps delete the poem somehow? That is they only thing I can think of. You may want to contct administration and ask them. Sorry I couldn't give you a more helpful answer.`Paula

The Soup has been experiencing technical difficulties of late. Hackers, server problems, you name it. I suggest trying to post your poem at a later time. Maybe tmr. One idead might be this...Make sure you pick a category and a form in the Post A Poem area. If you forget, it will not post the poem until you do choose one. Just an idea.~~Paula

I don't understand how to work with a poem to change the font, color, etc. other than the options to put it in bold, italics, or center it, like it says above the posting area.
Also, when I use the area below and separate from the poem area, I clicked on "add media" to add a video, and the icon for adding a picture to add a picture. It put the video and picture in that area, but the video wouldn't play.
Also, is there any way to put the picture and the video in with the poem itself? Please Help!!!

this is actually not a response but a question. I seem to be unable to post a new poem on poetrysoup. I have been a member for over a year and had a poem featured, so I do not know why this is the case. If anyone could be of assistance, that would be great. Thank you.

Sincerely,
jennifer
