    If you are editing a published blog post, the system saves a draft of that post, but the published version is still visible on the webpage. To see which version is the currently published one, see Revision history for content items.

  • Expand the Actions menu of a blog post and click Delete.
  •  Select one or more blogs and click Delete in the Bulk actions menu, located on top of the News list.
