    • General Settings: Set the basic properties, such as the name, description and how many entries to display (the default value is 25). By default, a blog is active and available to the blog community.
    • Voting (Ideation Blogs only): Modify options for how users vote on ideas in an Ideation Blog. The default is to allow unlimited voting, but you can specify a voting limit per blog user.
    • Internationalization Settings: Set time zones.
    • Comments: Select if you want users to comment on a blog. If you choose to moderate comments, you must review and approve comments before they display in a blog.
    • Default Comment Settings: Set preferences to allow comments for new entries, or to set a time limit so that after a specified number of days the comment field is no longer displayed for an entry. You can also apply these settings to existing entries in the log.
    • Blog Client API: Use this setting if you want to use a third-party editor to create blog entries.
    • When your changes are complete, click Update Blog Settings to publish your changes.
