Here are some of the changes to Blogs at Penn State that went live this morning. New blogs will be getting these features automatically.
This feature is currently live for some of users, and we'll be gradually rolling this out over the next few days. A "Subscribe" link is available below the Comment area that allows users to receive an email when someone responds to a comment.
New Visual Design For Penn State Voices
All the same features as before but now with a new layout which aims to make the large amount of information on page easier to parse. Try the new Penn State Voices now.
Easier Blog Management
For your convenience you can now get to pages that let you create and edit content right from your blog. No more having to remember the dashboard URL. If you are viewing your blog and want to change something, the link to do so is right there. Within the "Manage This Blog" sidebar widget, you can click on options to add an entry, edit this page, add a page, or go to the blog's dashboard.
You don't have to have a blog
Want to build a web site but don't want to include a blog? Now the blog link in the horizontal navigation of the professional template disappear if you have no blog entries.
