How do I answer a blog prompt?

To answer a prompt, you must first be signed into your blog with your IT Services username and password.
  1. Click on the 'Prompts' link in the left hand side of the utility bar. The prompts screen should appear. If you have prompts to answer, you'll see them listed as outstanding prompts. For each prompt you'll see the title, the author, the date it was published, the date it will expire, the actions you can undertake (answer or discard) and the number of other responses. If you would like to view other responses before you answer the prompt, you can click on the link in this column.
  2. Click on the 'plus' icon Plus icon to view the prompt in full.
  3. Click on the 'green tick' icon Green tick icon to answer the prompt. BlogBuilder's entry screen will appear, with the prompt repeated at the top of the screen. Answer the prompt by writing an entry in the normal way.
  4. Click the 'Publish now' button to publish the prompt answer to your blog.

You should see that the prompt answer has now appeared in your blog. It is distinguished from a standard entry by a 'Responses to prompt.........' title before the entry's text. Your prompt answer will also be available for other people to view unless you have changed the privacy level for the entry.
