For people living with incurable cancer only
This group is aimed only at people who have had an incurable diagnosis themselves, as we have had feedback that they would like a safe space to share their feelings openly among themselves.
If you have a loved one with incurable cancer, you are very welcome on the Online Community as a whole, but we would ask that you respect the wishes of people with incurable cancer and not post in this particular group. Instead, you will find really good support in the Carers group, the relevant cancer type group and the supporting someone with incurable cancer group.
can anyone advice me as to the missing blog tools. Write a post and edit a post? I cannot start my blog.
I am going to drop a line to the community team at HQ to see if they can help. xx
What is a community champ?
Looking at your profile, you've not yet created a blog to then post in.
It's a bit weird on site in that you need to create a blog title to then put individual posts into. So the first thing is to go to the following and fill it out - https://community.macmillan.org.uk/create-blog
As an example, if you look on my profile then scroll down to blog posts and click, you'll see that the blog is called "The Butterfly Who Flapped Too Hard". Then under that heading you'll see lots of individual posts, each with their own title.
So after your blog is created, then you'll get the options to make a post in it. But for ease, I'll add the link here - No I won't, lol. The link is, of course, blog specific. But as I say, once you've created it then you'll get the options to post in it.

I have tried 5 times to create a blog. Here it is. But it’s saying no log has been created. Has Macmillian blocked it?
OK, so I can see it in the news feed as having been created at least twice. But your screen shot is showing that you're viewing the blog as a guest rather than as the owner.
I don't know how you're accessing the blog, but try clicking on your username on the top right. Then navigate down to blog posts, rather than using the one in the front page main menu, and click. Then see if you can see a blog to go into, and then if the make a new post button is there.
My fingers are crossed for you!
I clicked blogs. Then clicked create a blog. Filled in title. Then description. . But it keeps showing the same page in my profile. I have followed all the instructions. Cannot even change anything, even the photo avatar. Generally my changing profile and everything keeps saying contact administrator.
If you're still not seeing the post options by accessing it via your profile and NOT the blogs, then sounds like the tech team have broken it. Lol. (Not a surprise tbh)
Hopefully someone that Daloni contacted will be in touch tomorrow with a solution.
If you haven't already, I'd type up the blog post in Word, or an equivalent, so that once it's fixed you can copy and paste it straight over.
Sorry I couldn't help!
You have been a help. Both of you. Someone has sent me a email from the help team. It may be a cookie situation or privately settings. Thanks. Goodnight.
The problem was from the site’s side. They have fixed things and I have finally started my blog. Thanks for helping me.
Finally got my blog started. It was blocked from the site’s end. Thanks for contacting them. How are you all?
