A blog is short for weblog, which is usually used an online journal. The editor published posts, and viewers can comment on the content of each post.
The settings of each blog module:
Basic - Posts per page: the number of posts to be displayed in one page. A 'Next' button will lead to pages of previous posts.
Allow replication – allow other users to replicate this module so that an empty blog module appears on their network and they can start their own blog.
Sidebar – the side bar is the column to the right of the blog posts that shows a tag roll and links to recent posts. Choose to display or hide the sidebar, the number of tags to show in the tag roll, the order of the tags (alphabetically, by popularity or randomly), and the number of recent posts to display.
Comments – choose to receive email notification of every new comment made, allow users to rate the post using a star rating or 'thumbs up', indicate if you wish to moderate all the comments manually allowing you to decide whether to display them, and indicate if you want to allow co-editors of the blog to moderate comments.
Update services – the system can send automatic updates to different services when you publish a new post. Choose the services where you wish to send such an update.
Co-Editors – make members of your network co-editors of the blog. Co-editors can post their own content to the blog, and moderate comments (if you give them access through the 'Comments' tab).
