Many of you on this new website have had your old blog imported into your new blog here.
There are some things you will still need to do to get your blog looking the same as the old blog.
Theme – if I have had time, I have changed your theme to the old one, but as there are over 220 themes now, many mobile friendly, you might want to look at it and change the theme again for the start of your new blog.
Clustrmap – as you can see on this blog, I have two clustrmaps. A new one for this blog and an image of the map from the old blog. Go to clustrmaps, click on admin and login with your old blog URL eg http://eschoolblogs.org.au/hthomsett and the password they sent you in your first email from clustrmaps. If forgotten, they will send in another email to you. Once into the site, go to statistics and you should see your original map, save it as an image on your computer. Come to your new blog, widgets> image widget> add the image and a title.
Settings – like timezones, taglines, privacy, compfight sizes for images – check in the header area for more details in checking settings on your blog.
Links to useful websites – again if I have had time, I have added these in for you, otherwise it is just a matter of copy and paste from your old blog to new blog dashboard> links> add new Make sure you have set up your link categories first.
Widgets – these I can’t do for you especially if you originally got them from widgetbox. This company no longer works on widgets so you will have to find other websites for class pets, clocks, calendars, translators etc. I will be writing a post about these in the future though.
Adding student users – I can now add these in one big batch and will send you a spreadsheet to fill in. Just contact me on my gmail email – see image on sidebar.
My Class in dashboard – if you have students as contributors on your blog, remember to create a class and then you can setup the moderation for posts. I will also be writing a post about moderating posts because Edublogs has added a new thing called reader which you can also use to follow other blogs as well as see pending posts.
