Welcome to Typepad 101! Whether you want to add some new features to your blog's design, or simply make your blog more functional, Typepad 101 has you covered. The tip is suitable for bloggers at all levels - no special tricks or upgrades needed.
Posts published to your blog are ordered by date, and you can change the date of any post to change the order of posts. Marilyn talked about her favorite feature of scheduling posts to publish in the future, and you can use the same feature to:
- Reorder posts,
- Use a unique ordering scheme,
- Publish previous posts anew, and
- Backdate posts.
To change the date &/or time of a post, go to the Edit Post page and select Publish On from Status menu. This will open the calendar pop-up where you can change publish date and time. Click OK.
If you are setting the post to publish now or in the past, make sure Publish is selected from Status menu and click the Publish button. If you are setting the post to publish anew in the future, make sure Publish On is selected from the Status menu and click Publish or Schedule. Learn more.
If you want to add content to your blog that is not ordered by date, you may want to consider using pages. Pages are static and great to be used for more traditional website pages. e.g. biography, contact, shop
Are there other ways you use the Publish On… function? Share it with us in the comments!
