1. A system for editing and publishing an online post, the system comprising a server having a user interface associated with an authorized user and communicably coupled to a database, the server being configured to:
(a) create a post based on a user command received from the user interface, the post having a plurality of non-overlapping content containers, each container comprising:
(i) a plurality of features comprising:
(I) a container type comprising at least one type-specific control;
(II) at least one content having a body and a link capable of being associated with a file stored in the database at a file location;
(III) a container position in the post; and
(IV) a container dimension,
(ii) a container type control configured to change the container type based on the user command,
(iii) a feature control configured to change at least one of the features other than the container type based on the user command,
(iv) a saving control configured to save the container to the post, and
(v) a deleting control configured to delete the container from the post;
(b) for the at least one content, generate the link of the content, the link uniquely pointing to the file while being different from the file location, if the content is associated with the file;
(c) when a first container is moved which causes an overlap with at least one second container, automatically update the container position of the at least one second container in order to avoid the overlap; and
(d) save the post to the database and publish the post with a tile, the tile comprising a visual identifier that is capable of being independent from the contents.
