• Post Options- Post options apply to the article you are currently editing. You can schedule when an article should appear on the site, allow or disallow comments for that article, or assign category tags to the article. Category tags appear in the right-hand column of the blog page. When clicked the tag will filter blog posts that to all posts that share the tag.
