    The "Resources" tab (found at the top of any page) is a place for the community to share useful and/or exciting downloads with the community. Here's how:

    Step 1: Access the Resources page by clicking on the Resource tab (see screenshot below).

    Step 4: Now choose a title for your Resource (see blue arrow below). Make sure others will recognize the purpose of your Resource by its title. Avoid generic titles like "Form" or "Helpful." Some examples of a good titles are "Monthly Calendar Full Page," "Freezer Inventory List," etc.

    Step 5: Choose a tag line (see red arrow above). A tag line is a very brief description of your Resource. A more detailed description can be added in the "Description" box (see purple arrow above).

    Step 6: Choose one of four ways to provide your Resource to the community:

    1. Upload your Resource directly to Hot Coupon World; or
    2. "External download URL" is used to provide the community with a link to your Resource. Simply enter the website address (URL) in the box provided; or
    3. "External purchase and download" is used when you want to offer a Resource at a fee to the community. Simply provide the URL where the Resource can be downloaded and list its price; or
    4. "Does not have a file" is used when the entirety of your Resource can be found in the description box (see purple arrow above).
    Step 7: Click "Save" at the bottom of the form, and you're done.

    Please Note: There are additional options available to you on the "Resource" upload form, but this "how to" was designed to provide just the basics. If you have questions, about the advanced options, please let us know. ;)
