Create a Post

Before you can create a post on your site, you must log-in to the blogs network (via the link or click on the blue Login button on the right sidebar) with your regular Bucknell username and password. You will know you are logged in because you will see a black toolbar at the top of the page.

  • On the black toolbar at the top of the page, hover your cursor over My Sites and then click on the title of the site where you want to create a new post; this will take you to your website
  • On the black toolbar at the top of the page, click +New; by default this will create a new Post
  • This will take you to an edit page that says Add New Post at the top (if it says Add New Page, you’re creating a Page and not a Post; you want to create a Post)
  • Write the title for your post in the box at the top of the page that says Enter title here
  • The main edit box on the page is for the body of your post
  • There is a formatting bar above the edit box where you can Insert/edit link, format the font, etc.
  • Once you’ve added your text, be sure to select the appropriate Categories from the right side-bar
  • You may also add any relevant Tags (think of these as hashtags or topics that you cover in your post)
  • When you’re done, click Publish
  • You can then click on the View Post link
  • Remember that you can Edit a post at any time
    • Access the post via the website and click Edit Post in the black toolbar at the top of the screen
    • Or go to DashboardPosts > find your post and select Edit
