Creating Blogs

How to:

A blog is an interactive content item that operates as commonly-seen blogs on the internet. It allows users to post and view comments. Blogs abide by the same security rules that apply to other items in the repository. You can publish, unpublish, hide, and move blogs between domains or folders. You can also share blogs with other users and groups.
