  •  Blog Feature Options

    Wednesday, Sep. 19, 2007
    The Blog Feature element has been revised in the new site design. By default, the featured posts are displayed using a styled list, with options to expand/collapse list items to view the blog post text. An option is available to display the featured items using the "directory list" style. Set the custom parameter display=list to apply that change.
  •  Blog Navigation Element

    Wednesday, Sep. 19, 2007
    In the new site design, the blog element doesn't include a navigation menu by default. You can add navigation for Recent Posts, Categories, and Archives to your blog page by displaying the right column and adding the "Blog Navigation" element from the Right Column category in the Element Gallery.
