This blog is ready to use without any additional tweaking, but you, as this blog's administrator, may enable several additional features that are currently hidden from both you and your readers.
These features include:
Technologically-inclined folks (or even adventuresome non-techies!) should read the following to learn how to enable these features.
First know that a "panel" is a block on the page that displays some sort of content.
Any panel on this blog home can be edited in terms of content and visibility. Content can be static, or dynamic (pulling in content from this hive). The advanced features mentioned only use static panels that you will need to customize.
Panels have a visibility setting - typical settings include visible to all, visible to admins-only (like this panel!), or visible to no-one. The "advanced features" you have the option of using are simply panels which are currently hidden, and require just a touch of tweaking.
To visit the hidden panels' settings pages, simply visit the blog's Settings tab, then click on Edit Panels. You'll see a list of panels on the left, broken down by frame (A, B, C, or D - the diagram will explain where each lies). The advanced features will show up as panels with visibility set to "none" and longish panel titles starting with HIDDEN. To enable one, simply click its edit link, and follow the simple instructions provided (don't forget to set the panel visibility to Anyone with Hive Access!).
If you don't want to enable these hidden features for now, just ignore this panel (no one else can see it). If you also don't want to see this panel, please click the edit link at the upper right of the panel, and under "Visibility" select "No one", and finally scroll down and click Save Panel.
