About posts

Documentation incomplete! Stay tuned for instructions on how to publish, categorize and tag posts.

Several pages and feeds on this site are made up of posts. These posts are categorized to help determine where they are displayed. Right now categories include blog (AHS Updates), events, exhibits, History Bites, museum pieces (slideshow on home page), new exhibits, past exhibits, and upcoming History Bites. Similar to events, when you make a post you should designate one or more of these categories depending on where you want it to display.
