Creating personal blogs

Automatically set up personal blogs for Firefly users by adding the Quick Blog component to the dashboard.

You'll need to enable  personal sections first.

  1. Decide who should have a personal blog.

    Personal blogs are automatically created when the Quick Blog component is added to a dashboard that they can access. For example, to create a personal blog for all your students you should add the Quick Blog component to the student dashboard.
  2. From the dashboard, select the arrow next to Switch Dashboard and choose Edit Page.
  3. Select More... > Quick Blog.
  4. Select Done to add the component. We suggest moving it to the top of the dashboard for maximum visibility.
  5. Select Done or Publish to save your changes to the dashboard. 
  6. Access a personal blog:
    • To access your own personal blog, select the arrow next to your name and choose Personal Pages from the drop-down. The personal blog is directly above it in the left menu.
    • To access another user's personal blog, search for their name and choose Profile. The link to their personal blog is displayed under the Blog heading.
