Creating an entry

  1. Log in to Movable Type
    You will see your summary screen. Choose 'Create a new entry on this weblog' for the relevant blog (if you have more than one).
  2. Enter the information as required
    Title: Title of the entry
    Entry body: Enter the text of the post here. If it is a long post enter the beginning of the post here and the rest of the entry in the 'Extended Entry' section.
  3. Assign a category
    Choose a relevant category for the post. If more than one applies select the 'Assign multiple categories' link below the drop-down list.
  4. Apply post settings
    These are at the bottom of the entry creation page.
    Post status: if you want the post to go live immediately, choose published. If you wish the post to remain in a draft form choose Unpublished. If you wish to schedule the post to go live, choose 'Scheduled' and nominate a time for release.
  5. Accept comments/trackbacks
    Depending upon your general blog feedback settings these may be pre-selected. If you do not wish to receive comments for a particular post, deselect the relevant option.
  6. Outbound trackback URLs
    Place the trackback URLs of any posts from other blogs in the box.
