Project Description

ANR Blogs Goal is to provide a simple, easy to use solution for communicating to the Public. For each Blog a central theme is chosen. The topic may be broad or a narrow. A Blog mainly consists of individual dated posts. These posts communicate to the audience by providing content for the audience. Many different types of media may be used in a blog post including text, images, audio, and video. Blogs may also include some pages to help describe the blog or provide additional information to the readers. These pages become available through a menu and are separate from the post list. The Post list is presented in reverse chronological order with the most recent post at the top.

Readers may subscribe to the Blog or may respond to blog posts in comments. Subscribers may subscribe in one of several ways. RSS feeds allow readers to follow a blog through the RSS feeds. Subscribers may also subscribe via e-mail. This will send an e-mail to the subscriber at most once a day with a roll-up of all the new posts since the previous day. If the option is enabled blog readers may leave comments on a blog post.
