Destination Specifics

Each destination interacts with Content XLerator a bit differently. Please click on a link below to discover what you need to know about submitting to each destination and how the submission will be displayed.

General

Within a few minutes (exact time will depend on submitted file size) following all submissions, you will receive a notification email with a play link (for video and audio submissions), media download links and embed code.

When the play link is clicked, a new window will open to our “hosted display page,” which looks like this: https://www.cxl1.net/Td3MVq3rkB79.

This page is also used to display content for some of the social media accounts (see below). All submissions require that some text be entered into the Title field.

Email

Following all submissions, you will receive a notification email (described above) within a few minutes. If you just want to receive this email and not have your submission distributed anywhere else, select this destination option.

Website

When you submit to a website destinations, your submission will create a new “post” on the website blog. What’s entered in the Title and Content fields of your submission will translate to the title field and body of the post. A submitted video or audio will display below the Content, a submitted image will display at the right with the Content text wrapped around it and a submitted file will appear as a download link below the Content. If you have a WordPress website, we will install our Content XLerator plugin and you’ll get access to these advanced features:

  • Short codes will be used, instead of HTML, for the video and audio embed code.
  • Default post status (draft or published) can be set.
  • You’ll receive a new post notification by email with a link to the post.
  • At setup, you can set a default category and author for your submissions (multiple website destinations can be set up with different default categories and authors).
  • The ability to submit to custom post types. To do this

Like any blog, once posted, you can log into your site and make whatever changes you want.

Here is an example of how a post looks on WordPress:
