Adding a New Post

Click the New Post button. The Blog Post screen will open where you can manage your blog post. Here is where you'll title, write, schedule, and publish your new post.

  • Post Title This is the display title for your blog post.
  • Post Body The post body is the area in which you'll type out your blog post or where you'll paste your post from some other text editor or document.
  • Web Address The web address area will be autofilled with the title of your blog post. If however you'd like to make a change to the web address simply click in the field and make your changes.
  • Summary/Description The summary/description area is a great place for you to provide a small overview of the blog post itself or even a small snippet. What you add in this area is used for two purposes. The first is that this text will display as an introduction to your blog post before the user clicks to view and read your post. The second purpose is for search engines to accurately index this blog post in user search results.
  • Keywords/Tags Use the keywords/tags section to include pertinent words that users of your site could use to find this particular piece of content.
  • Schedule You can use the schedule section to schedule the blog post to publish to the site at a date and time in the future. Read more about scheduling your content here.
  • Comments Select whether or not you will allow users to comment on your blog posts. Checking the “Allow Comments” box will allow signed-in users to add a comment that will need to be approved before it is displayed on the site. The site owner receives a notification via email to approve or reject the comment. As soon as the link is clicked to approve the comment is immediately viewable on the site. To bypass the approval process check the box for both “Allow Comments” and “Publish Comments” for comments to appear immediately.
