Articles App

Plenty of times we hear ''do you have a blog functionality on your platform/builder'' type of question. Yes, we do! And this app will make it possible for you to build your blog easily on Subbly.

Getting started

In order to get started go to the Dashboard and click on the Articles.

The Articles App is divided into three main sections: Articles, Categories, and Feeds. 

The Main page allows you to create and publish new articles, and view your articles according to their published/other status, category, and by date/ordering. When you hover over the article, the edit, view, or delete icons will appear.

Creating the article

Located in the top right corner of the 'Articles' page is the 'New Article' button. Click on it to fill out the title, introductory text, and full article text. 

Located on the right side is a panel. Click on the blue button at the top to 'Publish Now', 'Save as Draft', or 'Schedule the article'. The panel features the following subsections: Featured, Basic, Images, Sharing & Comments, and SEO. 


You have the option to feature an article.  Enable the Featured button for each article on Editor, set tags for your related articles,  go to the Single Article page and add the Related Articles element from your Left Panel to your crafting area. Select your favorite article for your page, and 'Publish'!


Schedule the date and time the article goes live, create/select a category for the article or leave it uncategorized, credit the author or leave it as 'unknown', and add tags if you'd like. Tags emphasize the article's main points. 


Select Browse Files or Open Media to select your Main and Social Images. Upload your own images or browse Unsplash's Free Stock Collection. 

New Article

To add a new Article to a certain page, just pick the Article Element from the Elements section on the Left Panel and drop it to the desired area.


Add the alias and description here. 


The created articles will automatically be saved to Uncategorized, but you can create and add your own categories. Don't forget to create the alias, write a short description, and include a vivid Social Image.  


You can add Article Feeds from different public news feeds by simply creating a new field and entering your Feed URL. The RSS feeds are located on the news websites. 

  1. Click the Fetch button to download the data.
  2. Head back to the Articles → Draft section and select the one you want to publish.
  3. Hit the Publish button to convey your Article to the Published Section.

Make sure to Save once you're done!

Adding a blog page

You can add a page to your Pages element by just creating a new page on the Pages App and selecting the articles option.

You will notice that the Articles/Blog page was created because the page will contain a feather at the left top of the box.

All the articles that you create will be added to the Blog Page automatically.

You don't know how to add the page to your header? Check out this guide.


How can I add a new Article to a specific page?

To add a new Article to a specific page, pick the Article Element from the Elements section on the Left Panel and drop it into the desired area.

Can I change the author?

Not in the article settings, however, you can hide it from the display of the article and add it somewhere else.

To do so, open the article's single page by hovering over it and clicking the eye icon, inside the Article app in your dashboard. After that, right-click anywhere around the article's main body to access Article Settings > choose Edit Settings and turn off the toggle for Author. Finally, you can add the author's name to the article's description or main text.
