Release notes: blogED R3.0 (20 May 2010)

Adding members and authors to a blog (access to groups for teachers not allocated a class in ERN)
Teachers not allocated a class in ERN, for example librarians and RFF teachers will be able to add roll classes or subject classes to a blog when creating or managing a blog.
Teachers not allocated a class in ERN are able to select the Show all classes in school checkbox under the Groups option when adding members or authors to a blog. This will show a list of all roll classes (primary) or all subject classes (secondary) at the school (as maintained by ERN). Teachers can add these groups to a blog as members or authors while creating or managing a blog.
