How can I edit or remove a blog entry?

Editing a blog entry & changing availability

To edit a blog entry you made, or to change who can see it, go to your own blog.

Find the entry you wish to edit and click the Edit Entry link beneath it.

 

You will see your entry displayed in an editable format. Make your changes, and click the Publish Entry settings.

 

Note: depending on settings, teaching / admin staff may be able to edit entries in other people’s blogs.

Removing a blog entry 

To remove a blog entry you made, or to change who can see it, go to your own blog.

Find the entry you wish to edit and click the Remove Entry link beneath it.

 

Note: depending on settings, teaching / admin staff may be able to remove entries in other people’s blogs.

Editing and removing comments

Other people can comment on your blog. At the moment, you can’t edit or remove their comments.

Editing your profile and picture

Your blog profile and picture appear in the right-hand column beside your blog. This is a description of yourself, perhaps talking about your particular interests in your course, or your research interests. You can also include a photo of yourself.

To set your profile, click the My Blog Settings link in the actions bar.

 

Enter your profile description in the text box. You can format the text using the icons above the text box.

If you would like to display a photo of yourself, you will need to have already uploaded it into Sakai. You might want to put your photo into the Resources area of Home. Get the web address (URL) of the photo. (You can do this by clicking on Edit Details link for the photo once you have uploaded it; the web address will be displayed at the bottom of the page.)

1. Paste the web address of your picture into the field labelled URL For My Picture.

2. Click Change Settings to save your profile and picture.

Note: your blog profile is not the same as your standard Sakai profile.

If you have blogs in more than one Sakai site, you will need to set your profile individually in each site.
