How to add a photo or a video to the journal

Want to share a spontaneous photo or video? Do it via the online journal. Add categories if necessary and filter what is displayed according to your criteria. Both parents can see the entries. You can now share news, quotes, pictures, and videos from YouTube or Vimeo.

How do I do this? 

Just follow these steps:

1. Pictures

1) To publish a picture in the journal, click on “Journal” on the upper menu, then “Publish a picture“. Now choose your photo to share from your computer by clicking on “Choose a file“. You can also add a description to this photo in the field under “Publish a picture“. Once your description has been added and your picture selected, click on “Submit“.



2) Your picture has been uploaded to the journal. If you (or the other parent) click on it, you’ll be able to download it. You can also have a look at the most recently uploaded pictures (on the right), and you’ll have quick access to albums (under the last uploaded pictures menu). On the right menu you can sort the articles based on their category.




1) To add a video, click on “Journal” on the upper menu, then “Publish a video“. Copy and paste the link of the video (YouTube or Vimeo) you want to share. If you want to, you can also add a description to your video. Once you’ve added your link and a description, click on “Submit“.



2) Your video has been uploaded to the journal. To watch it, just click on the preview picture of the video and you’ll be redirected to a new page to watch your video. You’ll be able to watch the last uploaded video. On the right menu, you can sort the posts based on their category.
