So lets do it.Navigate to the site, such as a team site, where you want to create the blog.On the Settings menu, select Site Contents.At the bottom of the page, click New Subsite.Now, type the name for your blog and an optional description if you like.Type the end of the URL you want to use to access the blog.Next, on the Collaboration tab, select the Blog template.Now you need to set user permissions.You can choose to inherit permissions from the parent site,so that those same people who have access the main site also have access to your blog.Or you can use unique permissions to choose the people that you want to give access to your blog subsite.If you choose unique permissions, then youll need to set up permissions after creating the blog.You can also choose for the blog to have its own top link bar or inherit it from the parent site.Finally, click Create.And here is Eduards new blog, inheriting the top link navigation from the parent site Home page. 3. 5 761 2 3 4 Course summary 8 HelpCreate and manage a SharePoint blog Closed captions Press F5 to start, Esc to stop Summary Feedback Help 2/5 videos 1:18 Create a blog Using categories Set permissions Permissions 0:39 2:20 1:27 Blog post layout 0:35 With the proper permissions you can manage blog post categories and comments left by blog readers.To create new blog categories or rename existing ones,simply click the Manage categories link on the home page of your blog site.So here you can edit category namesAdd a categoryor delete a categoryAnd thats how you add, delete, or change blog post categories for your SharePoint blog. 4. 5 761 2 3 4 Course summary 8 HelpCreate and manage a SharePoint blog Closed captions Press F5 to start, Esc to stop Summary Feedback Help 3/5 videos 1:18 Create a blog Using categories Set permissions Permissions 0:39 2:20 1:27 Blog post layout Configuring permissions for a blog is similar to setting permissions for other types of sites.The default permissions for a blog are inherited from its parent site.So, unless unique permissions for the blog were selected when the blog was first created,well need to break the default inheritance of permissions from the parent site of the blog. Go to Site Settings for the blog and from right here, under Users and Permissions, well go to Site Permissions. When I click Stop Inheriting permissions, Ill start off the process to set new permissions for the blog site only.Keep in mind if permissions inheritance from the parent site was broken when the blog was created,youll see the Start Inheriting Permissions command instead.Now, we have broken permissions inheritance from the blog's parent site,but the parent permissions are still in place until we change them and make them unique. So the next thing to do is delete the permission groups we don't want that were brought down to the blog subsite.To do this, go back to the blog Site Settings page and click Site Permissions.Select the checkbox next to the groups you want to deleteand click the Remove User Permissions command on the ribbon.Now, just the groups we want to configure permissions for are left for this site. Using groups makes it a lot easier to add and remove users because each group permission level doesn't change.The next step is to choose the users for each group.Remember, we deleted groups we don't want for this site,but each group still has the original users associated with them from the parent site.Let's add a couple of users to the Home Members group..And add a couple of users to the Home Visitors groupAnd remove all but these users from the Home Owners group So now only a select group of people, who belong to just three permissions groups, that have access to the blog. 0:35 5. 5 761 2 3 4 Course summary 8 HelpCreate and manage a SharePoint blog Closed captions Press F5 to start, Esc to stop Summary Feedback Help 4/5 videos 1:18 Create a blog Using categories Set permissions Permissions 0:39 2:20 1:27 Blog post layout Assuming you have set user permissions for your blog,its a really good idea to set specific permissions on individual lists and libraries that are part of the blog.It makes sense, for example, that you might want only certain users to be able to publish posts.Or you might want to restrict the creation of post categories to the blog administrator.Here we are on the blog home page.Click Settings, and then click Site Contents.Now, the first thing we need to do is allow for unique permissionsby breaking the default permissions inheritance from the blogs parent site. Click the Posts icon and then once we get to the list, we'll need to go into List Settings to manage permissions for the list.So here on the Settings page, well click Permissions for this list,and then click the Stop Inheriting Permissions from the parent site command on the ribbon.Now Post can have unique permissions from the rest of the site.You can assign a specific group the permissions necessary to approve Posts, for example.Or you can give one or more individuals these permissions.You do this by clicking Grant Permissions, and then clicking Show Options on the Share dialog. Now in this case, Eduard is the blog administrator so he should be the only one that can approve comments as they come in. 0:35 6. 5 761 2 3 4 Course summary 8 HelpCreate and manage a SharePoint blog Closed captions Press F5 to start, Esc to stop Summary Feedback Help 5/5 videos 1:18 Create a blog Using categories Set permissions Permissions 0:39 2:20 1:27 Blog post layout 0:35 Without any special customization, you have the option of displaying posts in three different formats.On the home page, under Tools, you select the layout you want to useBasic which is the default post layout.Boxed which creates an outline around each individual post.And Inline where the font size for the blog post title and authors name are equal in size to the date. And thats it. Youve learned how easy it is to manage the layout of comments and posts in the SharePoint blog. 7.
