Where To Find/Check Settings | Blogger 101

It is important to know where settings are. Settings allow you to do a number of things.

You will find settings by scrolling down the Main Menu. It will be at the bottom.

When you click on Settings you will begin with General Settings.

You can also view your Site Icon.

You can also view your Site Address. If you would like to change your address, you need to buy it.

After that, you can choose Site Timezone. This is really important to do, to make sure your blog is in the same time zone as you because if not your scheduled post will go on the selected time zone you have.

Same page, after seeing Time Zone, you have the options of what kind of Privacy you would like your blog to have.

You can choose, Public, Hidden, or Private, and all of these options have an explanation for what they mean.

You have the option to determine what your footer credit is.

Here you can also change your site address.

Import or Export content.

Delete your content. You keep the address, but your posts, pages, and all media are gone.

Or you could delete your site permanently if you wanted to, and give up your site’s address.
The second Settings Option relates to Writing.Screen Shot 2018-01-23 at 8.48.14 PM.png

You will be able to view your Categories and your Tags. If you want to delete any Categories or Tags you will need to click on the corresponding arrow.

Screen Shot 2018-01-23 at 8.48.27 PM.pngComposing is the next section as you scroll down.

Next, you can view if you would like to confirm publishing before you publish a post. This is a good way to double check that your post is ready to be viewed.

You can choose what format your post will be in.

You can see what Date and Time format you have.

Up next is Content Types. 

These options, I don’t really have much to do with them, except choosing how many posts to display per page.

These options will be seen on your main blog page.

Next is Feed Settings. 

This also relates to your main blog page.

Last is the option to add a Press This. I do not use it, but you may like to.

This finishes all options for Writing Settings.

Next will be Discussion Settings.

These are the options for notifications.

Next are options for your comment section of every blog post.

The next two sections deal with how you want to be emailed, and whether you want a comment to be approved before it appears.

The last section of Discussion Settings deals with Comment Moderation. If a person you don’t want is commenting you can write what words you don’t allow, and Comment Blacklist will stop others from comment altogether if they have a name, URL, or IP address you don’t want showing up.

It’s good to know where this is, should you need to use it.

 

Our last section for Settings deals with Traffic.

You have options for posts showing up that relate to the post a reader is reading.

You can see if your blog has the option to load faster.

Search Engine Optimization options you can pay for.

Last, but not least, you have the options to make sure your site is brought up when people use a search engine.

 

 

And there you go, those are all of the Settings Options 🙂

  1. [ Smiles ] When I had my blog on WordPress, I made it a priority of mines to know exactly where the settings were. As a matter of fact, all bloggers should know the location of their settings on the particular blog site that they are a member of.
