The Posts Screen manages blog posts on a UXi® site. Via this Screen, Posts can be edited, deleted, and viewed. Filtering, and searching, also makes it easy to quickly find Posts matching certain criteria.
Bulk-edit posts by clicking the select boxes in the left column, then selecting Edit > Apply from the menu near the top. Several powerful features allow Posts to be edited in bulk allowing fields such as Author, Tags, Categories, and Publish Status to be changed for a whole batch of Posts.
