Creating a blog post from the browser

You can use a special “a-new” URL to add posts to your blog without opening Umbraco. This is particularly useful if you want to post from a small mobile device (phone or tablet) where the Umbraco system can be unfriendly - fingers are no substitute for a mouse or trackpad.

Your posting URL would be: http://www.gloucestershire.gov.uk/myblog/a-new/

Assuming you are an Umbraco author this opens a blank canvas:

The canvas is bare and the only controls available allow you to embed an image from your camera roll or take a picture if your device has a camera.

Enter the blog post title on the top line and use Markdown to format the post body.
