Community Blogs are now operational!

Creating a Blog
In your User Control Panel (My Controls), you will see a Community Blog menu group. To create a Blog click on Blog Settings. When authorized you can create your Blog by agreeing to the Blog Terms and Rules. You will be asked to provide a name for your Blog and a description (optional).

When you click 'Finish' your Blog will be created.

Blog Settings
When you have an active Blog, there will be more settings available in the User Control Panel.
Your Blog Settings: Here you can setup your Blog, customize the look of your Blog, and create entry categories.
Content Block Settings: From this screen you can manage your content blocks (the little blocks of information that are displayed on the left or right side of your Blog page).
About Me Settings: From this screen you can enter information which will be displayed on your Blog's About Me screen.

Community Blog List
When clicking on the 'Blogs' link on the links bar you will be taken to the Community Blog list page. This page displays all available Blogs with some information about them. The screen also includes some search and filter options. Clicking on a Blog's name will take you to that Blog.

Adding Entries to Your Blog
When you go to your Blog you have a special content block called 'Your Blog Options.' This contains links to manage your Blog. Click on Add Entry to add an entry to your Blog. You will be provided with a post form, including all the options you are used to when posting a topic in Invision Power Board. You can post the entry as Draft (not yet viewable by other members/guests) or Published (viewable by all who are allowed to view your Blog).

Adding Comments to Entries
When clicking on a Blog entry name or the comments link of an entry, you will be taken to the entry view page. This page contains a quick reply form, or you can click on the Add Comment button to be able to add a comment to the Blog entry.
