Creating a New Entry

In order to post a new blog entry, you must first log into the website using the Member Access menu item on the bottom menu which is only shown on the home page.  Selecting this item will bring you to a login screen where you enter your username and password.  Once you are successfully logged into the website, you will see a new Member menu item on the top menu.

Select Member and Blog Post from the drop down menu.  The Blog Post menu option will only appear for users that have been granted access to the blogging system.

You should now see the Blog Post screen.

The red arrows point out some features that will be used on every blog posting.  The Save and Cancel buttons perform the customary features of saving your text or to exist without saving.  This is similar to any word processor.

The Title field should describe your article.  No need for a blog title such as Michael's Musings as this will be selected in the Category field.  Leave the Alias field blank and it will be auto populated using your Title.

Select your blog from the Categories field.  Currently there is only one Category to select other than the default of Uncategoried.

The editor is where the real work occurs.  You can type your article directly in or if you have created it offline, you can just copy and paste it into the editor window.  If pasting from Microsoft Word use the Paste as Text button so that unnecessary Microsoft formatting is not included when pasted into the blog editor.

The remaining fields can be left as is or used for special contol.  Remember to click the Save button to keep your work and to allow others to see it.  When successfully save, you will see a message at the top of the screen.  You can check your post by selecting it from the Main Menu.

Edit or Delete a Post

After you post your blog, you may notice that changes are needed or possibly you want to delete the post.  These can be done directly while viewing the blog post from the frontend.  Login to the website as nornal, and if you have appropriate permissions, you will see a link to Edit or Delete a blog post.  I've highlighted the links in Yellow nad Red below.
