For those of you who post a lot on the ANR Blogs you may have noticed a change on the Blog interface. The ability to add multiple Authors has been added to the Blogs. Each Author can be listed under any name the poster would like, even "King of the Universe" (should one feel the need to be listed as that).
When there are many authors sorting has been made easy with drag and dropping the author to the proper location. of course the arrows are always available if needed.
Here you can see an Author being edited. Everything can be edited to suit the need.
The ability to download ANR Blog Stats to Excel has been added to the ANR Blogs. The "Excel Download" link will download the stats from the page you are currently looking at. When viewing Blog stats and select "Excel Download". The stats downloaded will be the same as currently being viewed. This allows you to download the stats as you see them and as needed.
I know many have been wanting this ability. So I hope that you find this helpful!

When a category is selected it will be added to the current list of categories.
When choosing a category from the list the mouse or the keyboard may be used to select a category. When using the keyboard; up / down arrow keys highlight the selected category and the "Tab" or...

Unfortunately, that is a limitation of the iPhone and iPad's. Other mobile devices may or may not allow uploads. Other than this all the functionality of the blogs is available on mobile devices.
Beyond these we are still working out some of the minor bugs. So if you run into one of these "bugs", please let us know!
There's a lot that has been done to make the blogs mobile...
While the title is seemingly normal and boring, the reality is this update may change your life as we know it today. Or not... That depends on how important the ANR Blogs are to your sitebuilder site. Previously, anyone with a sitebuilder site could integrate ANR Blog posts into the right column of the home page. Now, this integration includes a choice to pick the center column as well. Part of the change also includes an RSS Feed link at the bottom of the Blog posting section. The RSS Feed lists all the posts that are displayed on your site. So if you have more that one Blog displayed on your site, all the posts come in as a single RSS Feed.
Displaying your blogs in the center column is very easy to do. Here's how to...
