When I try to create a blog I can type in the first text box, don't know what to put in the tags box(what type info should go there and what is the purpsose?) then when I get to the main box (the big large square ) I can't enter any text.

I just tried it on my IPad and could type just fine in the large text box. I never add tags. Shrug!

It should respond in much the same way that a post box here does. Which browser are you using? I'm using Firefox and it seems to be working fine for me.

I don't do a blog so I don't know.

chelle,
I use internet explorer 11. I tried again this morning but still when I click in the main text box I don't get the a cursor and can add nothing in there. I can type in the subject and if I knew what to put in the tags box I can type there also.

From what others have mentioned, those posting areas with all the extra features don't always work well with IE. Consider downloading FF (or maybe Safari, but I don't know for sure) and it should work just fine.

It's true that IE will definitely have problems with the more advanced features. I try to make the site work well for that browser but in the end there's only so much effort I can muster to support IE.

The blogs feature is something that I've wanted to update for a very long time and I keep putting it off for various reasons. I'd like to transition the blog to a simpler format where you enter your entries in a BB code enabled box (like the forums) instead of that big WYSIWYG editor.

Thanks, I tried with Chrome and it works fine. Just what was I going to put in that blog in the first place?

It's fun to read some of the other blogs, that should give you ideas!

Once we've created a blog entry, can we go back later and edit it, or delete it?

If we can, how can we?


Thanks in advance.

Edited to add - duhh, I found it:
