Setting Up A Blog
How to create a blog for yourself here on Vancruisers.ca! Note you only have to do this once - after you've gone through these steps you'll have a "Blog" in your folder and you can just go to it to add new blog entries with a single click!
So you want to write a blog here on Vancruisers.ca? Great!!
The first thing you have to do is log in and go to your home folder.
Log in, then click on "My Folder" to go to your personal area here on the site... Your folder is where you can upload files, photos, create web pages, you name it!
Now before you can post blog entries, we need to make you a blog to hold them! A "weblog" is a special kind of folder that holds "weblog entries" - you generally will only have a single "Weblog" but you'll have (hopefully!) lots and lots of "Weblog Entries"...
Let's add a blog to your folder now...
Click the green 'add new' dropdown menu and choose 'weblog'
Choose a name for your blog - this will be shown on the "Blogs" page so people can follow your postings. This ISN'T your actual blog entry, you're just giving your blog folder a name and a short description.
Great! Now you're ready to start posting blog entries!!
Just click on 'Add Entry' to get started!
