Posting options for .Text

with one comment

.Text is a very feature-rich blog server. In fact, it’s so feature rich, that the options for posting a given blog entry border on “way too many!”

The default dialog for creating or editing a post includes the title of the post, the body of the post (which is HTML), and the categories to which the post applies. Under the advanced options, there are six (6) checkboxes, and five (5) edit boxes that customize the behavior of that post. To see the advanced options, click the icon containing two arrows pointing down on the line that says “Advanced Options”, which is below the POST and CANCEL buttons.

The posting checkbox options are:

Checkbox When checked it means When unchecked it means
Published Your post can be read by anyone Your post is still in “draft” mode, so you can continue to refine it until you’re ready to publish it
Allow Comments Anyone can comment on the post, and their comments are immediately readable by anyone else No one can comment on the post
Display on HomePage This post will appear on your personal blog home page when people go to that URL A direct link is required for people to be able to see the post. It is not listed on your personal home page.
Syndicate on Main Feed This post appears in the RSS or Atom feed for all blogs hosted on this server. Posts that discuss personal interests should not be syndicated on the main feed. There will be many blog entries on the blog server, so personal blog posts should be removed from the main feed. This post only is listed on your home page feed if “Display on HomePage” is checked.
Syndicate Description Only Only the description of your blog post appears in the RSS or Atom feeds. The complete HTML content of your post appears in the RSS or Atom feed entry
Include in Aggregated Site This post appears on the blog server main page. Posts that discuss personal interests should not be displayed on the main page of the blog server. There will be many blog entries on the blog server home page, so personal blog posts should not appear there. This post only is displayed on your home page if “Display on HomePage” is checked.
