Blog Overview in Blackboard Web Community Manager


Add a blog to share ideas with your students
and the community. Let’s take a look. Select New Page, type a name for your blog,
select the Blog Page type and then select Save & Continue. Next, set up your blog options. To do so, edit the Blog App, and then select
Options. First, determine your display settings. You can display all, or a specific number
of blog posts. Next, select the Social Settings tab. Community Editing allows you to grant users
or groups the ability to edit or contribute to your blog. You can control which users or groups can
edit or contribute to your app in the Community Editing tab. If you enable Community Editing without assigning
rights, no one else can contribute to your blog. Next, select Commenting if you want to allow
visitors to comment on your blog. Under commenting, you have the option to require
approval, and set the display order of the comments. When you allow commenting, you can use the
commenting tab to limit which users or groups can comment. By default, any visitor can comment. Selecting RSS Feeds allows visitors to subscribe
to your blog through RSS. And finally, select Sidebar to set your preference
for displaying content date groupings and tags on the sidebar. When you are finished, select Save Options. And that’s the blog overview. Be sure to watch our video on creating blog
posts. Thanks for watching!
