@  notapb1 : (18 August 2014 - 07:26 AM) Looking For Feedback. I Have Applied For Iu. Was Told To Come In For A Psych Eval And Diabetes Clinic. Received A Call From Va They Were Cancelling The Psych Eval As The Doc(?) Who Did It In March(Ptsd Increase) Was Asked For His Opinion And He Was Going To Submit That. This Is The Same Individual Who Told Me Off The Record About Iu And To Contact My Service Officer. Sounds Positive To Me, But I May Be A Little Bias. Thoughts?

Help Topic: Community Blog


The Community Blog module allows you (if the board administrator has given you permission) to create a personal BLOG (also known as weblog).

Creating a Blog
In your User Control Panel (My Controls), you will see a Community Blog menu group. To create a Blog click on Blog Settings. When authorized you can create your Blog by agreeing to the Blog Terms and Rules. You will be asked to provide a name for your Blog and a description (optional). You are able to choose between a local and external Blog.
Local Blog: A Blog hosted on the board which includes all features to create entries, comments, content blocks, etc.
Link to external Blog: A link to a Blog which is hosted elsewhere.

When you click 'Finish' your Blog will be created.

Blog settings
When you have an active Blog, there will be more settings available in the User Control Panel.
Your Blog Settings: Here you can setup your Blog, Customize the look of your Blog and create entry categories.
Content Block Settings: From this screen you can manage your content blocks (the little blocks of information that are displayed on the left or right side of your Blog page).
About Me Settings: From this screen you can enter information which will be displayed on your Blog's About Me screen.

Community Blog List
When clicking on the 'Blogs' link on the links bar you will be taken to the Community Blog list page. This page displays all available Blogs with some information about them. Both external and internal Blogs are shown. The screen also includes some search and filter options. Clicking on a Blog's name will take you to that Blog.

Adding entries to your Blog (local Blogs only)
When you go to your Blog you have a special content block called 'Your Blog Options'. This contains links to manage your Blog. Click on Add Entry to add an entry to your Blog. You will be provided with a post form, including all the options you are used to when posting a topic in Invision Power Board. You can post the entry as Draft (not yet viewable by other members/guests) or Published (viewable by all who are allowed to view your Blog).

Adding comments to Entries
When clicking on a Blog entry name or the comments link of an entry, you will be taken to the entry view page. This page contains a quick reply form, or you can click on the Add Comment button to be able to add a comment to the Blog entry.
