This is an orange drop-down menu below the Publish button near the top-right. Labels - You can add tag labels to your post in order to group together posts of similar content. Labels will help your readers find similar posts on your blog, and help search engines find content that matches a user's search. Make sure that your tags are accurate, short, and helpful. Schedule - You can either have your post published immediately, or you can schedule it to be posted at a future time and date. Permalink - This option allows you to customize the URL address that links directly to your post. By default, it will be based on the post title, but you can change it to whatever you'd like here. Location - This allows you to add a location tag to your post. This is especially useful for travel blogs. Options - You can adjust various other options for your post here, including whether or not readers can comment on the post, and how the HTML code is interpreted.
