View Full Version : Blogs (Mobile Layout)

Here you can find information about blogs, when viewing the mobile version of the forum.

What is a blog, and why should I use one?

While forums are organized open discussions where anyone can create topics and reply, blogs are more personal and aren't restricted to any specific format. Users control their blogs. They allow us to customize the experience in different ways, essentially creating our own space on the internet. You can talk about anything, and you can choose who is allowed to view it, comment, and so forth.

How to Get Started

First you must click the grid menu (http://www.shonengamez.com/forum/mobile.php?do=gridmenu), located on the top right of the page:


Next, select the blog icon:

That will lead you to the main blog page. Here you can view all of the latest blog entries. Click "Create Blog" to continue:

Creating a Blog

Once you've clicked "Create Blog," enter the title and subject of your entry. You can also add tags (Tags are a useful way to search for topics with similar content and subject matter. This complements the normal search system, which only searches for particular words or phrases and/or posts by specific users.), but this is entirely optional. In addition, you can save your draft or preview it. When you are finished, click "Post Now".


Once You Are Finished

When your blog is completed, others will be able to view it and comment. You can edit/update your entry by clicking on the pencil icon. You can share a blog by clicking on the http://i61.tinypic.com/29xgrk7.png icon. You can subscribe to an entry, to be notified about new comments. Lastly, you can moderate comments in your blog by clicking on the grid icon on the right of "Leave Comment".


Moderating Comments

Once you click the aforementioned icon, you have the option to (un)delete and (un)approve comments in your blog. A small blue square will appear on the left side of all comments. If you you click on it, a white check will appear. Comments that have the white check next to them can be moderated.

I hope this helps! ^_^

Thank you. I'll bookmark this in my head for future use. I know how to make blogs by default, but thanks.

I am certain that a majority of people here understand how to do it. I'm hoping that it will be useful in the future, when more inexperienced members join. Also, the blog section of the FAQ doesn't really cover the mobile layout of the forum.

Thanks for all your hard work, Kaguya.

You're welcome. :)

Amazing post, already made this a sticky thread. I'll add it to the FAQ section as well.

Sorry for the late reply, but thanks!

I will have the full site version finished by tomorrow. It has a lot more options/features than its mobile counterpart, and I'll explain everything in detail.
