Creating a community blog

If you installed HCL Connections™ Communities and you are a community owner, you can create a blog for the use of the community members.

Community blog access

Your access to a community blog depends on the type of community and your role. The way that you can view and access a community blog is as follows:

  • If your community is restricted, the blog is also restricted and is for the exclusive use of community members. The blog does not display on the Public Blogs page, but can be found on your My Blogs page.
  • If your community is public, the blog is also public. In this case, the blog displays on the Public Blogs page and your My Blogs page.
  • If your community is a moderated community, which is a public community that users must ask to join, the blog is public, and displays on the Public Blogs page and your My Blogs page.

Each community can have only one blog.

Creating a community blog

  1. From your community's overview page, click Community Actions > Customize and select Blog.
  2. Choose Create Your First Entry to create the first blog entry.
  3. Return to your community. The new entry should be visible in the blog section.
