I am looking for someplace to upload our Yearbook on our Class page. Is there a way to do this on Class Creator?

Easiest solution is to use ISSUU.com

I use ISSUU.com. It is free, easy to use and uses no space in CC storage.


This is a sample of ours.

http://issuu.com/tommyraymorton/docs/rhs_yearbook_1965_fac/1?e=0

I broke the Book up by sections so they load faster.

After You have loaded it on ISSUU.com then set up a link on the Your CC pages to access it.

Thank you Tommy Morton and Jack Vermeulen.

I have uploaded our yearbook and my next question is when I try to link it to a click-able link I am getting it need to be in an html.
I want to make it easy for these people to click on it and go to the yearbook.
I can put it on the announcement page, but I have forgotten how to do the goto coding using an icon (yearbook cover for example) so they just click on it and it will take you to the ISSU page.
Can someone please give me some help. Thank you all for the help.

Hi Sharon,

I was going to suggest you use the yearbook cover to link to the upload on ISSUU. To link, once you add the yearbook to the page,

-CLick on the yearbook image
-Click on the LINK (chain links) in the editor (middle row, 3rd from the right)
-Input the URL of the yearbook on ISSUU and Save.

Enjoy!

Is it really free? I went to the main page and it states free trial for 30 days. Even Terms of Service states you have to give them charge information. How did you do it for "free"?

Free, Free 30 day trial for the 1 yrs subscription and then the premium one or business one.

Everyone is talking about put the link of your issuu yearbook onto your page. I just add the embed code into the source code. That's a lot easier

And the embed code is key.

I recall visiting someone's site recently where the yearbook showed as embedded on a page. When I clicked to view the yearbook, it opened in ISSUU. Might that have been your site, Scott?

I'm got 3 yearbooks published on Issuu. I don't have them active yet. I did what Tommy Morton did and broke the yearbooks into Sections

If you want to get the embed code you've got to sign in. Go to My Publications. Then click on the publication. You get a pop up menu. Click on SHARE. You'll see many options to choose from. You want chose WEBSITE or Blog. This will take you to another page that will get you the embed code. I left everything pretty much alone. Copy and paste onto your website SOURCE CODE.

As of 09/22/2014, our website celebrated our 5 year anniversary. Our Digitized Yearbooks are now online. I broke each yearbook into 4 sections. I did this because Issuu has this thing about the maximum file limit being 100mb.

Also, we've got videos & brochures of Kansas Scenic Byways.
This can been found under Tourism

I've used the Advanced Design #2. I have a Photoshop subscription. Cheaper than buying it. And can do a lot more things.

As always, our "High School Class Reunion for Dummies" remains popular.

For the past 3 years, our site has been live streaming our high school football and basketball games. This can be found under Entertainment | GBHS Sports

Enjoy...Scott
