In Version 7.5.xx and higher of the eDirectory system a new Blog Module was introduced. The Blog Module is designed to be a very Sitemgr-centric Blog where only the Sitemgr can add Blog Categories and New Blog Posts. Registered members of your directory have the capability to add comments on one of the Blog Posts after they sign into their account and if they do not have an account they will be prompted to register for one. In order to add a Blog Post, please follow the following steps:

1. Please log into your Sitemgr
2. If you have not yet added any 'Categories' relating to the Blog Module you must do this first.
