Format Your Text

You can select portions of your text to highlight in one way or another using many of the same tools you might have available in many word processors.

You can add text decoration such as color , boldface, and alignment, or you can create links here and add pictures using the tools above the Text Edit area.

Set Your Blogging Options

You can set the blogging options for the post below the Text Edit area. Set the Allow New Comments on This Post radio button to Yes . This will enable users to add comments to the post. There will probably be some postings where you don't want to allow users to post their comments. You can set that here. You can also set the time and date for the posting if you would like.

Publish Your Post

After you are done with your post and your settings, click on the Publish Post button to publish your post.
