Posting to Your Blog


Once you have your blog set up and enabled, it's time to start posting and generating great content. Adding new posts, or editing existing ones, is made simple with our editor and we'll step you through here the options that you have for creating new posts.

FINDING THE EDITOR

To find the blog editor, simply follow these steps:

Step 1

In the admin dashboard, navigate to Admin Dash > Blog > Posts

Step 2

Here, you will see a list of all past blog posts (unless you have yet to create any) - if you are trying to edit a blog post that already exists, simply select the pencil icon from this list on the right, otherwise, select New Post

ADDING CONTENT

TITLE

The title of your blog post appears on the feed as well as in the title of the post itself. This should be something unique and catchy to draw attention to your post.

CONTENT

This is where you will write all of the content for your post. Note that you have several options available to you as part of the 'What you see is what you get' (WYSIWYG) editor - including formatting text and adding images.

EXCERPT

This is the content that will show up in the blog feed as a description of the post. If no excerpt is specified, the system will pull from the content that you entered. Note that the excerpt will be truncated (...) if this content is too long.

PUBLISHED AT

Here you can specify when the blog post should be published, so that you can plan content to go out at a later point in time if need be.

SLUG

The slug is appended in the URL of your blog post. By default, if no slug is entered the URL will use the title of your post - otherwise, the format for the URL will be: example.com/blog/[slug]

HEADER

The header image is placed at the top of your blog post. If no header image is specified, the system will use your blog's default header image uploaded in 'Settings'.

AUTHOR

Here you can provide information about the author of the post - including their name, biography and a profile image (avatar). The avatar shows up in the feed, as well as the blog post itself with the user's name and biography at the bottom.
