TypePad Dashboard Shortcuts
Part of the TypePad For Dummies Cheat Sheet
On the main page of your TypePad blog, the green strip across the top is the Dashboard — your account-level navigation bar. Use the TypePad Dashboard to access your core TypePad account, not just your individual blog — an important distinction to draw because many people manage multiple blogs from one account.
Here's a handy list of shortcuts that enable you to navigate your TypePad Dashboard quickly and manage your TypePad account.
|Click This Link||To Do This|
|TypePad||View the TypePad Dashboard.|
|Dashboard||View the TypePad Dashboard.|
|Blogs||See a pull-down menu of the blogs you've set up with this TypePad account. You also see the Add a Blog link, which allows you to create a new blog on the same account or connect blogs on other blogging platforms to your TypePad account. If you have several blogs, you can choose which blog you want to work on from this menu. When you click a blog name, you're taken to a page that gives you an overview of that blog's statistics and links to other tasks (posting, comment moderation, design, and settings).|
|Library||See a pull-down menu that allows you to access your photo albums, TypeLists, and files. If you have a TypePad Micro account, you do not have this option.|
|[Your Username]||See your TypePad Profile page as it appears to your readers. The exception is that you also see the Edit Your Profile button—your readers don't see that.|
|Account||If you have one of the TypePad Pro accounts, you can see and update your TypePad account information. From your account information page you can edit your personal information, notifications, billing information, and About Me page information. You can also add or delete additional social media and affiliate accounts (such as Amazon.com, Facebook, Twitter, or FriendFeed), change your password, or map a domain name to your blog. If you have TypePad Micro, you can update your personal information and notifications settings and add or delete social media accounts.|
