  • Create Your Own Blog

    The Blog feature on TheGLForum is the most overlooked feature and really sets this forum apart from other forums. As a registered member of TheGLForum, you can create and maintain your own personal blog.

    HOW IS POSTING TO A BLOG DIFFERENT FROM POSTING TO THE FORUM GROUPS?

    I am glad you asked. Think of your blog as your own personal forum, within the construct of TheGLForum. When you setup your blog, you have more control over who sees your posts, and you can control the content within your blog.

    SETTING UP YOUR BLOG

    1. Click on Blogs in the forum menu (top of page)
    2. Click on the MEMBER BLOGS tab

    The MEMBER BLOGS tab

    3. Click the + Blog Entry button

    If you have not previously setup your blog, you will see the following dialog:

    4. Give your blog a name (ex: "My Goldwing Riding Blog" or "[username] Blog")

    5. Enter a blog description, or leave blank


    You can click the Advanced Settings link to go directly to the Blog Admin page, or simply click Continue for now. You will be able to administer your blog later.

    6. Click Continue

    Next, you will see the Blog Entry page for your new blog.

    You will notice that the Blog Entry page looks very similar to a discussion group post for a new topic. Basically, it IS the same. You are creating a new topic within your OWN blog forum. You can include photos in your blog entries. However, you can control whether or not you allow others to respond (comment) on your blog entries. You will do this through the Blog Admin page.

    ACCESS THE BLOG ADMIN PAGE

    1. Click on the Blogs menu at the top of the page

    2. Click the MEMBER BLOGS tab (same as step 2 above)

    3. Locate your blog in the list of Member Blogs

    4. Click on the name of your blog


    Your Blog page will be displayed. On the left you will see all of your blog entries and on the right-hand side, your blog summary.

    5. Click on the Administrative drop down menu at the top of the Blog Summary

    From here you can select the Blog Admin page you wish to modify. General Settings is a good place to start!
