Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
I recently wanted to add a new post on dev.to, I went to https://dev.to/new and read the help section. I started with the title, tags etc. And I thought the description is the place to add details about my post. I added all details there. But when I clicked on Preview, I was able to see only the title of my post.

I was not able to figure out after trying multiple times on what needs to be done. I reached out to Practical Dev on twitter and after chatting with him, It clicked my that I might need to add those details below the --- line and top section is just metadata and description is not the place to put all your content.

Describe the solution you'd like
I can think of 2 things, that can help.

  1. Put a sample example in the help, with a hello world text and everything that is possible.
  2. Change the default template of the new post to include hello world text below the --- line to let people know that content goes there.

Describe alternatives you've considered
Nothing else, either of the above 2 options would work.

Additional context
Example template :

---
title: 
published: false
description: 
tags: 
---
Content goes here !!

We're slowly moving over to a whole new editor. Here's the announcement post about it.

that looks nice thanks. Since we will be keeping the old editor, it might be good if we can change it a little bit.

I think we could update the publishing guide to have an image of the editor (and where everything goes) for clarity.
