MOST SCHOOLS DO NOT USE THIS FEATURE OF THE SCHOOL WEBSITE TEMPLATE -- NOT SUPPORTED
Blogs are a simple way to communicate with parents, staff and community members. Unlike traditional school newsletters that are uploaded as individual documents to a website, the blog provides easy access to current and past "posts" on a single page. You may assign categories to your blog to allow filtering by topic and you may also choose to allow (or not allow) comments from the public. Posts can be created directly from the website or in MS Word.
On your blog site (About Us>School News Blog), you will see links under Blog Tools that allow you to Create and Mange Posts, Manage Comments and Manage ategories. Since all posts are stored in a SharePoint list, you will edit the list to make these changes. These instructions are only visible to content editors when they are logged in.You can also post to your blog directly from MS Word 2013: File>Share>Post to Blog. The first time you do this, follow the steps to register your blog.
