A new menu item will appear in the WP Dashboard, under "WP Symposium" and called "Blog Posts", where you will find options for the plugin.
If you haven't done so already, create a WP page that will hold members' profile information. It must contain one of the available shortcodes for the WPS Profile page, which can also be the shortcode for blog posts. The shortcode you are using for this page will set the default display for this WPS Profile page. It isn't important that you create a page dedicated to blog posts, those will appear as menu items at the profile page anyway.
If you are using WP Symposium Profile page with a horizontal menu, at the dashboard WPS Profile Options page, new menu items will appear at the bottom of the WPS Profile page structures, called "My Blog Posts" on own WP Symposium Profile page, and "Blog Posts" on others' profile. The corresponding menu items "My Blog Posts" and "Blog Post" will be displayed at the WPS Profile page, as per the menu structure. It is advised that you check that the blog post menu items fit in your menu structure, especially with regards to roles and to avoid empty submenus for roles not checked at the WPS Blog Post options page.
If you are using WP Symposium Profile page with a vertical menu, a new menu item on the Profile page will be called "My Blog Posts" on own WP Symposium Profile page, "Blog Posts" on others' profile. You don't need to do anything else here.
