Blog posts within the Thinkfinity Community are often used to post information from a group manager to a crowd. As a member of a group, you can create and comment on blog posts. You can also subscribe to blog posts using an RSS Reader.
- Navigate to the group homepage by selecting Browse > Places on the dark red navigation bar at the top of the page or select Places from the main navigation bar. Note: There are several ways to navigate around the community.
- Select Content and filter by selecting Blog Posts. Note: Not every group has a blog.
- By default, the posts are listed from newest to oldest. You can filter blog posts by tag or using one of the sorts from the drop down.
- Select the title of the blog post to read the full content and any comments.
Commenting on Blogs
- From the main group page, select Content and then filter by selecting Blog Posts.
- Select the blog post that you wish to comment on.
- From this window, you can view the comments already published about this post or select Add a comment to add your own thoughts.
- If you add a comment, make sure to select Add Comment at the bottom of the dialogue box in order to publish your comment. In some cases, a group's manager must approve comments before they are published.
Subscribing to Blogs
If you would like to receive a notification through your RSS feed when a blog is updated, please follow the directions below.
Subscribe by RSS
- From the main group page, select Group Feeds in the Actions menu.
- Locate the Blog Post URL.
- Either select the link to add it to your default feed reader or copy the URL and paste it into your feed reader program.
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a way for you to keep track of changes or additions to content you care about. By subscribing to the RSS feed for content, you are asking to have easy access to information about content changes or additions.
To view RSS feeds, you use an RSS reader (also known as an "aggregator"). This could be your web browser (recent versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari support this). There are also reader applications that are specifically designed to collect and aggregate RSS feeds.
