Cool Tips about My eCoach Blogs

By Barbara Bray      June 6, 2011 -- 10:35 AM

It is pretty easy to create a blog in My eCoach and have "user control" of who edits and comments.

Letís say you just want to reply to one personís post that was in the middle of a long list of posts. Now you can and that reply indents so you have something similar to a threaded discussion.

Verifying User

By Barbara Bray      October 29, 2008 -- 12:17 PM
When others outside of the eCoach community comment on your public blog or Universal builder, they are asked to verify who they are with a captcha.

Once that you have set the blog to view by public, anyone inside or outside of the My eCoach community will be able to read or comment on your blog. If anyone wants to comment on your blog, he/she will be required to type his/her name and the words (captcha). Captcha is a verification that is used to determine whether or not the user is a human. Each time there will be different numbers and letters. We changed to a new Captcha program that asks ...   more...

  • Blog posts now appear in recent activities
New Templates

We adapted the new templates in the Universal builder so you could extend your collaborative projects using a similar template. Just put a link to your blog in the Universal builder.

Add Categories to your Posts
Why would you do this? If you have multiple posts and people are having trouble finding a post on a particular topic, they can check your list of categories on the right sidebar.
