Editing a blog post

Edit an existing blog post to modify or add to its content.
Only a Site Manager, a Site Collaborator, and the user who created the blog post can edit it.
  1. In the Blog click Edit to the right of the post you want to edit.

    Note: You can view the post first to ensure it is the one you want to edit, then select Edit on the post view page.

    The Edit Blog Post page appears displaying the selected post.

  2. Make the required changes to the post title and content.

    Use the features provided to format the text; insert bulleted and numbered lists; change the font color; and insert or edit links, anchors, and images. To assist with editing, use the undo, redo, and remove formatting features as needed. Additional features are also provided; position the cursor over an icon to display its function.

    Click and drag the bottom right corner to resize the text editor.

  3. Edit the tags for this post as necessary.

    You can add and remove existing tags, or create new tags.

  4. Save or publish the updated blog post:
    • Click Update to save the changes.

      This option appears for all posts. It updates the version of the post in the site, whether it is a draft or it has been published.

      Note: When you choose this option for a post that has previously been published externally, the text (Out of sync) appears after the title to indicate the version in the internal blog does not match the version in the external blog.
    • Click Publish Internally to save the changes and publish the post to the internal blog, making it available for other site members.

      This option appears only for draft posts.

    • Click Update Internally and Publish Externally to publish the post to both the internal and external blogs.

      This option appears for any post, including drafts, that has not yet been published externally.

    • Click Update Internally and Externally to update both the internal and external blogs.

      This option appears only for posts that have already been published externally.

    The updated post appears as users will see it. The text (Updated) appears after the title.
