GABATA Groups provide you with a platform to connect with individuals who share your educational interests, whether it’s scholarships updates, or any other educational pursuit.
To become a part of a GABATA Group, simply go to the ‘Group’ button in the menu, and choose the Group you’d like to join. It’s worth noting that the majority of GABATA groups are set to ‘Private,’ requiring membership approval before you can access their content. After you’ve requested to join a Group, the group admin will either accept or reject your request.
If your request is accepted, you can actively participate in group discussions, contribute your insights, and share knowledge with other members.
In contrast to Groups, GABATA Forums are open to all members for the discussion, sharing, and learning of educational content.
You have the flexibility to create a new discussion thread within any forum topic of your choice, and all members are welcome to engage in these conversations.
Numerous forum topics are available for discussions, but do remember to keep your content relevant to the topic at hand.
On GABATA, every member possesses the capability to craft and submit their very own blog posts. These posts are made accessible for all other members to read and can also serve as a valuable writing portfolio for those among us who wield the pen.
Composing a blog on GABATA offers an array of advantages. You can share your valuable insights, utilize it as a professional portfolio, establish your expertise, broaden your followership, and generate a positive impact in the lives of your readers.
To create a blog post, there are two straightforward methods:
The first involves navigating to the ‘Menu’ and selecting “Submit a Guest Post.” Alternatively, you can head to your Profile, locate the “Blog” button, click on it, and you’ll discover various options to manage your blog posts, including creating new ones, editing previously published posts, and making further adjustments. When crafting a new blog post, simply click on “Create a New Blog Post” and provide the following details:
1. Topic: Specify the topic of your blog post, for instance, “How to Earn Online.”
2. Content: Compose your entire blog content within the content section.
3. Featured Image: Select an image that will be showcased on the front page of your blog post. Ensure it does not exceed 100kb in size.
Afterward, submit your blog post and share your insights with the GABATA community
How to Create Posts on GABATA: Groups, Forums, and Blogs
Posting on GABATA, whether in forums, groups, or blogs, requires only a basic understanding of HTML. Don’t worry if you’re not familiar with it; you can quickly grasp the concept by following these simple guidelines.
At GABATA, direct image uploads to our website are not supported. However, you can still share images by following these straightforward steps. To upload images on the GABATA forum, you should:
Return to GABATA: Come back to GABATA and click on the ‘IMG‘ icon within the editor.This action will prompt a pop-up window. Paste the image link you copied earlier and provide a brief image description. Complete your post, and voilà, the image will be seamlessly integrated into your post.
However, if you intend to post an image in a group, please note that the ‘IMG’ icon is not available. In this case, upload your image on snipboard.io, copy the generated link, and then post it in the forum editor. Copy the link provided and paste it along with your content in the group. The image will appear once the post is submitted.
To simplify this process and save you time, after uploading your image on snipboard.io and obtaining the link, you can copy the image URL in the HTML code format provided below: ““. Replace “pic_trulli.jpg” with the link acquired from snipboard.io, and your image will be displayed. For advanced users, you can also include additional attributes like “alt,” width, and size, although leaving it as is often proves to be the most convenient approach.
