This process, as for any page, can take some time. Until you publish this page (in the following steps), users will not see this content. So feel free to write a draft!

The menu that appears will show whether your blog entry has yet been published and when it was (or is scheduled to be) published. It also consists of a form which sets your preferences for this blog entry, including

  • Which blog to publish it to (if you have multiple)
  • Name to appear as author of the entry
  • tags (categories) to associate with this entry
  • Whether or not to allow comments for this entry
  • Future date to publish the blog (if not today) NOTE: clicking here will hide the 'publish blog' button since you are not publishing the blog today. If you accidentally click here, just refresh the page and try again.
  • Optional image to show next to the entry preview on the blog index page

NOTE: You can return to this form at any time - even after publishing a blog entry - to change these settings.

Fill in the blog settings form
