Don't forget to add helpful blog tags to your blog posts! Blog tags are a useful way to group related posts and quickly tell reader what a post is about. Blog tags are also useful for filtering and searching through your blog. To add a tag to you blog, type in your tag to the “Add Tags” box above the Save and Review button at the bottom of the page.
On Site Builder you can filter blog posts by tags to better direct which blogs show up. To do this select your blog asset and click “Edit Blog”. On the Page Asset Editor page find “Filter Posts By Tag(s)” and add your tags. Be sure to check for spelling errors!

He's also been our main customer service support person for Site Builder, Surveys, Blogs, Collaborative Tools and most recently, Adobe Connect.
Alex's cool temperament has earned him a great deal of praise over the years, and his departure will be felt by all of those he has assisted.
If you'd like to send Alex a note, his last day will be February 22, 2013. After that, he will be moving to his new PROGRAMMING position at UC Davis. After stewing in the web cave for the past five years, Alex has finally morphed...
