5.1. Blog Posts

Posts are entries that are display in Newest First order on your Blog page, highlight or sidebar. Posts can have comment fields beneath them if you would like feedback from patrons.

Creating Posts is very similar to Pages, but with a few additional options. For the following instructional examples, we will be using “Kids Summer Programs” as our Tag so we can group the posts when we display them.
