Authors! A Note …

17 Apr

Authors, please remember to add a second or third category to your postings to help us fill out the blog pages. Many readers go directly to the categories to read what is there about a certain subject. If you do not select other categories before you publish everything goes to the front page. Because of our migration some years back to WordPress we ended up with a Main Page as a category. It’s is confusing, but a plugin now controls by default what is seen on the blog’s front page. You do not need to select any category to get onto the front page before you publish your post. But please add as many secondary category choices as will fit your posting so that readers will find them in our category tree. You can go back and add categories to your already published posts, and click Update to republish them and they will also appear in other categories. I know this is sometimes hard to remember. I have forgotten to do it, myself. But it really helps fill out the blog and makes it easy for readers to find what they are looking for. Thanks so much …

— David DeWitt

    Will do David. I have to admit I have never been happy with the current layout. I had no idea we could do that. I will go back to as many of my post’s I can remember. Is there a way I can search for just my postings?

      Yes, when logged in, go to your dashboard, click posts, then all posts. The list will show all of your own postings in a clickable list. You can open the posting, select additional categories, and click update.
