Since blog questions come up from time to time, and many feel more comfortable raising them in tech support tham in PMs to the mods, we'll make this a permanent thread to deal with them.

Ilja and I will keep an eye on the thread, so have no fear. thumb.gif

Perhaps Iím doing something wrong but the Blog forum does not seem to reflect my recent blog entries. If someone clicked on ďRightersí BlogĒ they might think that I hadnít made an entry since January 3, when in fact Iíve been making entries regularly.

(Although maybe not as regularly as some.) wink.gif

Am I doing something wrong such that my recent entries do not appear to affect the blog forum overview? As the author am I the only one who doesnít see updates at the forum level? Or is it something else entirely?

Thanks in advance,
MADG

They're still listed as drafts and not published. Make sure to click the publish links/buttons for the ones you want others to read.

Hi, Chris:

Was thinking of starting a blog writing about living overseas as an American (been now to DK, Panama and heading to India in 2 wks). How does one get started doing this?

Thanks!

PS - I've searched all over the site trying to figure this out on my own. Apologies if I'm blind as a bat! blush.gif

I would be glad to help you Renwaa but unfortunately I'm at work at the moment so I can't take the time needed to truly explain things right now. There is a section under My Controls that addresses Blog options that you might want to explore in the meantime. If you don't have your answers by tonight when I get home from work, I'll come back and help at that time.

Good luck! smile.gif I'm glad you are joining us in BlogLand.

Thanks, Ilja hug.gif I'll check out what you've suggested and see what I can figure out!

I think I'll call it: Renwaa - A Life in Transit

How's that?

Sorry I ddin't see this earlier. I thought I had this thread set up to notify me by email when there's a post, but i guess I don't. I see Madg posted something over a month ago, too. I suck.

Anyway, Ilja sent you in the right direction. Let me know if you need anymore help.

I'm home now, Renwaa. How's it going? I keep checking to see if you've started one but haven't seen anything yet.

Chris is the real expert so if it's anything too difficult, I'm sure he will know exactly what to do. biggrin.gif

Hey, Ilja. I must be retarded because I can't figure this out at all. All I see under My Controls is for the Blog tracker.

What am I missing?

I think you might have to be a Gold level supporter in order to start your own blog.

Ah! Then I guess now's as good a time as every to become one! Was just thinking not too long ago about contributing again since it's been a while.

Ok, just donated. Will wait to see my account upgraded. Maybe then the fields will open up to something not shown as a silver level supporter.

FYI...

I've changed it so ALL new blog entries appear in the blog column on the home page. Also, I've increased the number of blogs titles to show from 15 to 20.

Are blog entries included in "Searches?"


And, if not... how am I supposed to remember if I've already ranted about something?


(Oh, never mind... it's a blog... I can rant as redundantly as I like.) wink.gif

There's a search box at the top of the blog list page, and you can search your specific blog entries using the search box at the bottom, right side under Search My Blog.

So let's say I want to write a blog entry and quote and link to another blog. Does it get tracked on that blog that someone from RN is writting about it?

See, I'm confused by something I see on blogs from time to time. Some comments are "track backs"(?) and seem to be snippets of some other blog that has written about that blog entry. Is this an automatic thing?

Do my questions even make sense?

Trackback is a feature which allows a blogger 'A' to inform another blogger 'B' that A has written an article which references B's blog entry. What will happen is that a link to A's blog entry will be displayed in the trackbacks box on B's blog entry.

I had no choice but to disable the trackbacks on our blogs because of the HUGE amount that went to porn and drug sites due to spam bots. They were out of control. But, you can send trackback pings (this is what you were referring to in your post) by clicking the send trackback button on your blog entry and adding the link to the other person's blog entry you're referencing to in the box that pops up. You find the trackback URL by clicking on their Trackback URL link on the trackback box of that entry.
