How do I edit or delete an entry?

You need to be logged into the account that you wish to edit or delete entries in. Then:

1. Depending on what style you use, the entry page may say "Edit" or show you the Dreamwidth "Edit" icon. The Dreamwidth "Edit" icon looks like this:


2. Select Edit Entries from under the "Create" menu.

To edit your entry, open the edit page for that entry and make the edits you'd like. When you've finished editing your entry, click the "Save Entry" button.

To delete the entire entry, navigate to the edit page for that entry then click "Delete Entry" at the bottom. You'll be asked if you're sure you want to delete the entry.

Deleting an entry will permanently remove it and all its comments from the Dreamwidth servers and you won't be able to get it back. Instead of deleting the entry, you might prefer to change the security on the entry (e.g. by making it private) instead. If the entry security level is "private", nobody can see it or any of its comments but you.
