Workingwith blogs

  1. 1. Working with Blogs
  2. 2. Team Blogs • Team blogs are quite useful when small groups of people wish to contribute to a single blog. Basically, one person initially creates the blog, then adds other people to it as members. • Team members can either be administrators or not. Administrators can edit or delete posts (not just their own), add and remove team members (and grant admin access), and modify the blog's settings and template. Non-admins can only create and edit their own posts.
  3. 3. Blog Administrators • More videos • Invited team members accept your invitation, and are listed as an "Author" by default. Authors can only create and edit their own posts. You can see a member's status in the "Permissions" section of the Settings | Basic tab, and it looks like this:
  4. 4. I have lost my admin rights • Any other admin member can restore your access via the Settings | Basics tab in Blogger. If you’ve been removed from the team entirely, they can also send you a new invitation to rejoin. • The last admin member on a team blog can’t be removed, and can’t have their admin rights removed. That means there’s always at least one admin member on any blog, and that person can help out the other members.
  5. 5. Who can post comments on your Blog Settings – Posts and Comments If you have set up a team blog, then select “Only members of this blog” to restrict comments to team members only Comment moderation – set to always

  7. 7. Who can read your blog Settings – Basic In a team blog, select “Anybody” otherwise no-one will be able to subscribe to your blog (via RSS feed)
  8. 8. Adding RSS feeds • You can only subscribe to a feed if the blog has been set up to be read by anyone (settings – Basic – Blog readers) • Only members of the blog can comment
