    Question Blogging...

    Just had a simle question about blogging. I noticed in the FAQ that it says "If you have the option to blog..." Does this mean that a member must somehow earn the priviledge to blog? If so, how?

    Well... I have asked tashi (admin) once about this before. You can blog about anything. If it was about your day, the food you like to eat, etc. Of course, it should not include personal identifiable information.

    I am pretty sure any member can blog. Of course, given that they are a member of the forum .

    Good luck to you in the Malware Removal University. I'm sure you will do fine.

    Hi magnus,

    I think all members have the privilege to create a forum blog.

    I'm sure if you explore the 'Blogs' menu you'll find a link to creating your own should you want to.

    Happy new year!

    Default Need help then...

    Under FAQ, it says "If you are allowed to post blog entries, you will always have a link in the blog sidebar titled "Post to your Blog". This link allows you to post entries immediately, entries that will post automatically at a future date, or create a draft entry for later review and posting."

    Am I blind because I have no option on my blog sidebar to "post to your blog."

    Anyone want to help me out here?

    I always respond to 'good luck' by saying "it's more work than luck," but thank you for the sincerity.

    Sometimes luck occurs at the most unexpected time.
    -
    If you go to your user control panel click on "Private Messages" on the top right hand corner of your current screen. You will find the clickable link "Blog" in small print.
    E.g.
    SaferNetworking
    My Error Reports
    My Scans
    Blogs
    Projects

    Well, I give up. I clicked on Blog, the link that you had mentioned, and it takes me to the blog options page. If it click save changes, it just keeps me on the blog options page.
    On my Blog Conbtrol Panel I have these options (listed in order):
    Blog Options
    Blog Sidebar
    Blog Subscriptions
    Blog Entry Subscriptions
    Blog Satistics

    Any more help or specifics would be great. If need be, I can try to figure out how to post print screens so that you can see what I see.

    For now, thanks anyways.

    Is there something called "Your Blog"?

    It appears that my previous assumption that all members can create a blog is wrong. I logged into an account created for a friend's previous malware problems, then roamed through every menu and could not find a link to creating a blog, but only the options mentioned by magnus already. It does seem strange as others members such as this 'junior' member was able to create a blog post (see the 'Blog' tab in the profile).

    This could be something that maybe Tashi might want to take a look at when she has time?

    Maybe she can enlighten us lowly towns-people with the news from the castle, or phrased in a slightly less strange manner: I'm sure she'll explain to us what's the current forum policy and if anything needs to be changed.
