Try Posting

Okay, Renee and Darlene (and anyone else who’s listening), now you’ve posted several comments, try a new post. Go to the publish link in the upper right corner of this page. That will open the control panel. Select the “teacherlore” blog, and that will open a form. The fields are “title” “job title” “town” and the “body” of your post. The submit button is in the upper right hand corner.

Be sure to find the “category list” on the right side of your screen (I need to scroll to the right when I used Firefox but it’s on the screen when I used Internet Explorer. You have to click the category you want your post to appear in. This will probably be the biggest problem with students, so I would keep their categories quite simple until they learn. 

If you forget to select a category, you can follow the “edit” tab to open your post again, and select the category, or make any other changes you want. Or even delete the post, if you change your mind. I selected “about weblog” for this post.

  1. Mike:
    I’m still trying to get the hang of viewing and commenting vs. creating new.  Can students be entering a new comment in on a required assignment (see the assignment I added under the chester heirloom blog), and move directly to commenting on other student postings?

    Oh, glad to see you’re using an alternative browser.  I’ve been using Opera for about a year.  Wouldn’t go back to explorer.  I keep it for when I work with microsoft, because it’s required, but otherwise I like opera.

  2. Yes. No problem moving from post to post to make comments.

    Also, if you go the edit tab in the control panel, you’ll get a list of all the posts along with a “view comments” column where you can click on a comment and edit it. You can give students permission to edit each others comments or not.

    I quite like Firefox except, as you say, for Microsoft applications. My version of internet explorer has spyware that I can’t get out, though I’ve tried three different programs. I hate it.

    By the way, the hover buttons on your website aren’t supported by Firefox.
