Blogosphere Restructured

Featured

The NEOBlogs have been restructured! The blogosphere has moved! Check it out at www.blogs.jfusa.net. All NeoBlogs have been moved to new addresses, using subdirectories instead of subdomains. (For example, "Remonstrance" was moved from www.remonstrance.neoblogs.org to www.blogs.jfusa.net/remonstrance.) Bloggers should have received an email at the address they had their blog registered to instructing them to administrate a new blog. All old content, drafts, images and posts have been imported from the .neoblogs addresses, into the new blogs at blogs.jfusa.net. (Note: themes have not been imported, and as such, blogs have all been set to the default WordPress theme, "Twenty Eleven." Feel free to change this as you see fit.) This new restructuring is part of an effort to concentrate all of our sites into one network, built on a single site’s WordPress install, which will increase security and simplicity, and leave NEOXenos less vulnerable to exploitation over the web. Jfusa.net stands for “Jesus Freaks USA Network,” and is in the process of being designed as the home base for NEO Xenos, with subdomains for currently existing separate sites, such as the NEO Zine and Love Ethics. With very few exceptions, the new blogs have the same title to them. Bloggers can login at their own sites, (i.e. http://blogs.jfusa.net/example1/wp-login.php) or at the main blogs login page, http://blogs.jfusa.net/wp-login.php Your login may be different from your old login name! Log in using the name of your site. (i.e. if your site is http://blogs.jfusa.net/username101/, login as "username101.") If you have any questions, or your blog is not functioning as expected, email Alex at aherbers@neoxenos.org.

Welcome to the Blogosphere

Well, it's not the blogosphere, strictly-speaking. But NeoBlogs.org is the definitive blogosphere in Northeast Ohio for creative minds at Xenos Christian Fellowship. And you'll find lots of creativity here. Read the "Best of the Blogs" for a sample of the creative juices flowing around neoblogs.org. Looking for an opportunity to discuss issues? Go join our Issues At Stake blog and let's hear it! But keep in mind Xenos isn't responsible for the content of the blogs here. Each blog owner bears that dubious distinction, so go sue them if you've been offended. NeoBlogs provides the server and software, but the bloggers provide the wit and brains. You can report abuse or abusive language here, and we'll be happy to investigate. Or leave us a comment, below, and let us know what you think.

New! Picasa Web Albums!

You can display a Picasa Web album on your blog now.To automatically insert photos from PicasaWeb into one of your posts, just make a link to one of your albums on a line by itself. Don't just paste the URL into a blog post; you need to actually link the URL (so it is clickable). The URL looks like this (it will by default): http://picasaweb.google.com/username/albumname
  • username is your Google (PicasaWeb) username
  • albumname is the name of an album
The default settings are pretty good, but you can change them by going to your Dashboard, and under "Settings" you'll see "KB Picasa".

Use Footnotes!

Hey everybody, now you can put cool footnotes in your blogs. It's simple: wherever you wish a footnote to appear, enclose your footnote text in double-parenthesis. Make sure you have a space before the double-parens and after the double-parens. ((You should be seeing a footnote here!))
