Your blog post has a title and a content area. The title is like the headline of a newspaper article, so it should generally be short.

Click Add Categories if you’d like to tag your post. These tagged categories will appear on your sidebar, making it easier for visitors to your blog to find posts that cover certain topics. Categories can be whatever you like, or you can forgo them altogether.


From here, you can also schedule your post for a later date and time, and turn comments on or off.


When you’re all done, you have a number of options related to publishing and sharing.


In the upper right, there are two buttons: Save and Post. Clicking Post immediately publishes this Post to your website, and clicking Save will create a draft so you can go back and edit it later.


When you click Save, you’ll see a Drafts button is added to the lower right. Clicking Drafts lets you view all your works in progress to edit and post them when you’re ready.

Standard Use Case Example:

  1. Click New Post.

  3. By default, the date of the post will be the current date, however, you can edit it by clicking the date and using the pop-up calendar to set the custom date.

  4. Now below the date is an area that is much like a standard page, you can drag out any element you like to be part of the blog post.

  5. For this example, we will outline what a standard blog post could look like. Drag out an image element and text element below and fill out the first paragraph of intro information and upload the photo banner.

  6. Now that we have the start of the article you can drag out below the existing elements a Read More Break element, this is a special element that sets up where the read more option will be and any element you drag below this line will only be displayed after the user clicks to read more.
