How to create a Blog?
Blogging is one of the best ways to share news and info about your store and provide users with helpful info about your products and the industry your niche is located in. The website builder provides all of the necessary tools to get you started and awaken the blogger in you!
To start creating your blog, the first necessary element is to start writing your article. This is done in the Articles app on the builder which is explained in more detail below.
The Articles App
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/another 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.
Sharing & Comments
Enable sharing by clicking on the button. To enable comments, enter your Disqus name and click 'Connect Disqus'.
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.
A created article will automatically be saved to 'Uncategorised', 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.
- Click the 'Fetch' button to download the data
- Head back to Articles > Draft section and select the one you want to publish
- Hit the ‘Publish’ button to convey your Article to Published Section
Make sure to 'Save' once you're done!
How to add the Blog page to your site?
The article type of page should be added from within the Pages App of the website builder. Please note that there is a separate type of page when adding the page to the Pages app, you need to aim to add an Articles page as indicated in the screenshot below.
How to add the articles to your Blog page?
After creating your first article and a blog page where to present the articles themselves, you'll need to add and manage the articles and how they should be displayed.
For this, it's best to use the Article element which is found on the website builder as shown below:
You can also opt for adding the articles in separate categories if you wish to manage them in groups or by specific topics.
