The word Blog is a well-known word in the internet, however in this web site, a blog is much more powerful.
Blogs let you create an entry with a file and images, tags for search optimization, commenting, and scoring options. Subscribing to a blog sends notifications via email of new postings.
There are multiple types of blogs within the web site. Community Blogs are blogs that are site-wide blogs set up by DHPE.
Group Blogs are shared within a group only.
Profile Blogs are individual and within the profile of a person.
Create a New Blog under any of these. This is a topic or category indicating what the postings will be about. You can set up preferences for commenting, voting/scoring, etc. The blog itself has to be created before any postings. Creating blogs within groups depend on your restrictions within your group. Contact your group administrator for help.
Add a Post under any created blog.
Within the post you can attach files, videos, images, tags for easy searching, allow comments, and format the text as you like using the html editor.
Subscribe to any blog by selecting Subscribe at the top of the blog. This gives you immediate update notifications via email that a post has been added. RSS feed is also an option for a blog.
