the 'feature' option features the story, which means it is put onto the front page as one of the three items in the middle at the top. That way it will show up better, so for samotnaf's blog for example, it would be worth featuring them, but for some of the other blogs, say the film review one, they would still have a front page link under the blogs heading but they wouldn't be featured.

If you want to add a tag then you just type it into the 'tags' box. In general contributors are encouraged to use existing tags as otherwise they become unwieldy and much less useful (in the past I've spent hours cleaning up the tags and others have spent even more time on it.). Just type in Free Flowing in the authors, people and groups tag box and it will create the new tag when you publish the article. Then all you need to do is open the tag through the link in the article and edit it as appropriate.

Posting to twitter is just automatically putting a the title and a link to the new article onto the libcom twitter feed so you might as well do that.

Hope that helps.

I think what Dead End is talking about is the intros at the start of some tags. These can be created by going 'Submit content' -> 'Intro' then filling in only the 'title' and 'introduction' boxes, maybe uploading an image, and filling in only the tag or author that you want it to be the intro to. After that it should appear at the top of the relevant tag and be editable.

hi, what is the story about? (So we can tell you are not a spammer)

blog posts are only for authorised libcom bloggers, so to get a blog you need to let us know what you will be blogging about, how often you will post etc. We are very happy however to have one-off posts in the news, library or history sections which any confirmed non-spammer can have.

Hello, could I have an blog here? I blog already on my own sites, mostly in Dutch (the country I live is the Netherlands), on all kind of things, from Arab Spring to anarchist ideas, Dutch and international class struggle. To give you an Idea, I have an English-language blog as well (that has been silent for ages): http://peterstorm.wordpress.com . Of course, when I blog on Libcom, I may also cross-post/ repost, on my other sites, if there is no objection.

One of the reasons I like to blog here as well is that I can get and give more, and more focused, feedback o what I am thinking from fellow Libcom-thinkers, be a part of ongoing international debates, thn when I only write in Dutch (or on that English-language blog that nobody reads: ) )

I wrtite a lot on my Dutch blog, several times a week. I think if I write economically (translate/ rework my Dutch blg pieces, for instance), I can manage one blog piece a week here, maybe more, and sometimes less; )

Hoping to hear from you:) Salud!

Hi, that sounds great! And of course you could post anywhere, libcom is anti-copyright. You now have the requisite permissions.

hi, thanks for your request. We are discussing it and we'll get back to you ASAP. For reference, your blog will be called whatever username you register as. So if you want to register the username IWW-BIRA or whatever else that will help speed things up. Or else we could make this username into the blog (and rename it if you like)

Thanks! Yes for now using the current username "IWW-BIRA Communications" or just "IWW-BIRA" is fine. As long as it can be changed later, as we may be changing "BIRA" to another acronym soon...

Cheers!

this makes it so much easier to block spam! It's brilliant, although I hope that we aren't losing a significant amount of genuine content because of the extra hurdle…

Hi Libcom,

Folks want me to turn this comment in to a larger text and I'm down. Can I have a blog?
