— Blog Site & Dashboard —
Registered users will have access to the blog site’s dashboard. Each time a user logs in, they will be taken to their personal dashboard which is a portal to their administrative settings and will display recent posts, as well. From this screen, they can make minor adjustments to their screen settings, update their profile settings, including the web site they represent, password, etc., and update subscriptions (automatic email notifications) settings.
They can also go back to the main blog site by clicking on Visit site in the upper left-hand corner of the page.
All of the blogging functions will occur for registered users within the main blog page. Subscriber functions include: searching, commenting, replying, quoting, and linking a post to RSS feeder.
A user can access their dashboard again by clicking on Site Admin or choose to Log out. Both of these functions are in the upper right-hand corner of the blog page.
— Authors & Posts —
Everything begins with a post. Posts are detailed log entries created by authors. Mover’s Suite has three authors who will be responsible for creating all its post entries. You can read the details about these authors within the Authors tab.
» If you have a suggestion for a blog post, please submit it to email@example.com.
— Comments & Subscribers —
All registered users become subscribers to the blog site and will have the ability to submit a comment on a post or reply to an existing comment. All comments will be arranged in chronological order following the post description; any comment on that same post, including replies to comments, will display within the post’s comment lineage; this is also referred to as a “chain.”
There are two ways in which registered users can get to where they can leave a comment:
Login and use the MoversSuite Blog dashboard by clicking on the “#” symbol within the from line of a Recent Comment for the post you want to add a comment to, or
Login and click on the Visit Site (upper left-hand corner of the dashboard), locate the correct post and click on the post’s header to open the full post entry and click on Leave a comment
Note: Reply and Quote are two versions of a comment that are directed a particular comment or user. When either is selected, the Leave a comment box will be filled in with HTML containing the specifics of the comment. Just click in the empty space after all the HTML code and begin typing your message.
— Categories, Trackbacks, &Tags —
Categories can be assigned to a post by the author at any time and they provide a general grouping of related posts. Trackbacks link the post to an external site, typically another blog site with a similar post. Tags will be used by authors to link similar posts together that belong in different categories; Tag Clouds will display on the blog’s main page as recently added tags.
