You can have Blogs on your site!

 We can now feed UAS Online Blogs directly into CMS web pages AND have them update without having to republish the page from the CMS.

This has been happening for many months on the Helpdesk site homepage Helpdesk Notifications.

Before we had to insert the code, but now it is much easier for anyone to add their own blog. Here is a new test blog on the CMS site which may become a regular feature. Stay tuned for more exciting news.
