Instructions for uploading a debate video

First, If this is your first time, scroll down the Let’s Debate home page ( ) and look for "Register" under the "meta" heading in the left and column

Register using any username you wish, but be sure to use your real email address. A password will be emailed to you.

Registering is enough to post comments to the Let’s Debate blog, but it isn’t enough to upload a file. You also need to send a personal email message to the Let’s Debate Administrator requesting that you be approved as an "author," which grants upload privileges. Send mail to

Once you are registered AND approved as an Author,  scroll down the LetsDebate home page and look for "Login" under the "meta" heading in the left hand column

Login using the username you provided above and the password that was emailed to you

You should now see the Let’s Debate blog Dashboard.

If this is you first visit, you are advised to click on Profile (or Update your profile or change your password). Fill in as mush (or as little!) as you wish; however, we highly recommend setting a new password for yourself.

Click the Browse button (NOT Browse All) and find the video file on your computer that you wish to upload. Then, provide a title and description for the file, and finally click the Upload button.

Click on "Send to editor" to insert the link in your Post content
