TypePad Dashboard Shortcuts

By Melanie Nelson, Shannon Lowe

Part of 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
