User Guide to the SEC Blog

This is an attempt at a beginners guide to the Blog section of the forum. I am still learning how this works, so if anyone has any useful tips, or that I have made an error, then please comment and I will update the guide.

The basic idea when you select a blog to view is that you are able to scroll down through and read the posts made by the blog author. The most recent post is at the top. If there are comments on posts then they are not shown unless you choose to view them.

  1. Viewing The Blogs


    Start by selecting the Blogs Tab

    This takes you to the Blog section - recent posts, and much like the main forum. As you scroll down you see all the most recent posts from all the blogs.

  3. Custom Pages for your Blog and other tips..

    CUSTOM PAGES

    Also on the blog settings page you can create up to 5 custom pages. Once created, these pages can be accessed from tabs at the top of the thread or from a list on the side bar depending on where you choose to place the links. These pages could be used for a car specification page, or a photo gallery, or anything else you can think of.
