Topic tags/keywords: blog separate parts adding to a blog question how do i

How do you guys (and gals) do these Blogs where you add each next part, and the links for each of the parts show at the top of the blog page, each with it’s own title (part 1. part 2, part 3, etc).

I started a blog on making my own disc sander and couldnt figure out how to do a “Part 2” so I just added a revision at the bottom.

And yes I did try to search to figure it out, but couldnt find an actual “How to” on this

When you start a new blog entry there is a box for series. When you click on it, it will ask if you want to start a new series. Then name it.

don’t put the number in the title
to the blog

the series will do that automatically
when it is posted
you can go back to the first you did
and edit
and do the series thing there

then come forwards to each blog that was done
and change them too
(they will also find their own series number)
till you get to the new one
and use the same series there too
it will pick up all of them that are in that series

each will be called by that series name and #
but each will have it’s own title
that you give it

like building the box
adding the top
doing the finish
etc.

So can I go back and still do that on the one I already started?

Or was I supposed to set it up BEFORE I started it?

According to Patron…..
YES, you can go back & make it a series and add to the original!!!

when you edit

you might have to delete the name you gave it
to open that ‘series’ window
do the thing there
and then just write the old post name back in

the next time you do a blog
you will have the options of continuing the series
or doing one not in the loop

Thank you patron for this tip, I was also confused on my Pantorouter build and just edited the original. I don’t quite understand the purpose of having several series for the original but I’m new to blogging. Seems a bit complex for no more than what it is, but sure that’s just me.

at the top of each series blog
right over the title
are all those in that series
last on the left
current in the middle
and next to the right
so you can just go thru them all in sequence as you like

some series may have 8 or 10 parts
so this is the easy way to look at them all

without looking for a different one in the pulse

BGT

looked at your pantograph blog

you did the whole thing in one jump

many would break it up into sections
to be done at any later time

like a workbench build
that keeps getting setbck
waiting for the time or wood for it
to continue

the series can be added to at any later date
when it is convenient

by your bi-line
i would say you got a definite hit
with your first shot

well done
and a great build
