When you first start to use Tempaste we suggest that you create an account in order to have access to all the features that the website offers. Simply create a username and enter your email and password. You will receive an email to confirm your account and then you have full access.
Once you are logged in, go to the 'Create' page, which is where you go to start making your pastes. Here it allows you to add a title to your paste, then in the main body of the paste it has a lot of the same functions that you would find on a MS Word Document like font editing, formatting, options to add a table, ability to add in symbols and emojis. Everything you would look for when creating your paste.
You can add images, other media, links, embeds or switch to syntax highlighted code. You won't find any other websites that offer all of these. There is also an option to preview your paste before you create it, just to check it looks how you would like it to be. There are two options when you are creating your paste, to either use the word function or you can swap to write in code. Tempaste supports over 150 language options including Java, C and C#. Just choose whichever code you prefer and off you go.
You have the option to make your paste private, password protected or public. The main feature of Tempaste is that the pastes have a set expiry time, which can be set anywhere from 1 minute up to 1 year, with the option of minutes, hours, days, weeks and months. However, once the paste is live you can clone it to keep the paste alive.
Tempaste generates your own personal URL, which can be shared through copying the URL or through social media sites Facebook and Twitter. You can also set your own custom URL if you wish.
Once you have been through all the unique features you can create your own personal paste. If you choose public visibility, this is then listed under 'Recent Pastes' which allows other users to view your content. Which is also where you can view other users' public pastes. If you like the look of any other pastes, you can clone these and add them to your own pastes.
You can also contact other users through a contact page, or you can view other public pastes the user has posted. When you are contacted by another user this will go through to your email account. This tool can be a great way of sharing your content with friends or business colleagues or a way to interact with other users.
You have your own personal Dashboard, which has options to update your personal information, account settings and your pastes. You can view and manage your pastes here. Tempaste also offers an option to create an API key so that you can connect Tempaste to your own apps.
