Editing an Existing Post



Once you start producing content, you are going to find yourself needing to go back and make some changes from time to time.  These changes might include privacy settings, category changes, photo changes, text changes, color changes and diaper changes.  Um, I am just kidding about the last one.

Frustration Alert

Using “edit” or “quick edit” can be confusing in the beginning. I don’t recommend using “quick edit” until you feel confident about all the selection options.  Sticking with “edit” is likely a safer bet in the short term.  ”Quick edit” will be your friend in the long term.
