Posting to Your Blog on HWDSB Commons

Ok, so you’ve requested your blog, you’ve changed your theme to something more representative of you, given it a name, and tweaked the user settings with your URL so that your blog is clickable from our community page on Now it’s time for you to post your first article. Follow along with this video as I show you how to create a new post, add a title, write your text, and add a picture / video from the internet, as well as categories and tags. I’ll also show you how to delete that pesky ‘Sample Page’ from your menu that was added as a default when you requested your blog.
