How to add a blog form to a SiteBuilder page

Objectives of this guide

This guide will demonstrate how to add a blog form to a SiteBuilder page. The form allows the reader of the page, if they are a member of the University and have a blog, to write a blog entry in response to the contents of the page. If the reader does not have a blog, it instructs them on how to get one. The blog entry is titled, categorised, and has its permissions set automatically by the form. There are also a series of templates available that can be used to automatically format or add content to the blog entry. For example, there is a template for writing meeting minutes.
