Weblog on the FCS
Besides various content services, the FCS platforms also offer their users a weblog function. With an FCS weblog users can easily link to other platform facts (images, files, news,...), which is a major advantage.
The startpage of the weblog-service shows the ten most
recent entries. All entries can be searched with the help of a
calendar as well as the search function on the right side. Furthermore entries can be fiter by a tag or tags, which can be selected from the tag cloud or can be typed directly in the input field.
Similar to other facts a weblog entry is created with the help of an input mask. The input mask can be openend by clicking on "create a new fact" in the edit-box in the left frame. Tags can be assigned to the entry.
