New 'Blog Feature' for Website Builder

Posted 02nd October, 2014 by Aliysa

The Tsohost Website Builder has just got even better, with the arrival of the brand new 'Blog' feature. Now, at the click of a button, you can add a feature packed blog to your business website, or even get up and running with a stand-alone blog. If you're creating your very first site, or looking for an alternative CMS to WordPress, then Website Builder is the perfect tool for you.

Features

Create & Publish

  • Creating Posts: Website Builder is renowned for its ease of use, and with the 'Posts' editor you can create, edit and push a post live in a matter of minutes. Posts can either be created in HTML or just plain text, perfect for those with little or no coding knowledge.
  • Formatting and Images: You can fully customise the look and feel of your content by selecting a personalised font and editing the text size and colour. Adding images to the body of the text is as simple as uploading it from a file to the editor.
  • Tags & Categories: Once you've drafted your post then you can add it to an existing category, or alternatively assign it to a brand new one. Content can also be assigned to tags to further help users find relevant and useful content; if a user clicks on a tag then the blog listings will sort to show them posts with the same tag.
  • Preview Mode: The built in ‘Preview’ feature allows you to see exactly how your content will appear on your site when published (it’s also the perfect opportunity to scan your content one last time for errors). Even after your post is published you can jump back into the 'Posts' editor at any point to change and tweak your content.
  • Going Live: If you later decide that you no longer want the blog feature to display on your site, you can take it offline by disabling it. All of your posts will be saved in case you choose to make it public again.

Settings & Display Options

  • Blog Name: The 'Setup' section lets you add your own blog name, which will appear at the top of your blog pages. You don't have to commit to a name, if you want to change it in the future then you can do so at any time.
  • Number of Posts Displayed: From here you can also customise the number of posts which appear on each blog listings page, from between 5 and 50.
  • Feature Image: In the ‘Posts' editor, you can add a small excerpt and feature image that will be displayed at the top of each post and within your listing pages. This image will be the first thing your visitors see when they land on your blog.
  • Online/ Offline Control: If you later decide that you no longer want the blog feature to display on your site, then the Website Builder lets you disable it and take it offline. All of your posts will be saved in case you choose to make it public again.

Navigation

  • Top Navigation: Once your blog is online, users will be able to access it directly from an option in your site's top navigation menu.
  • Search Bar: A brand new blog-search widget helps users to search your blog content for keywords. To enable it, just drag and drop the tool from the 'Add Content' dropdown to wherever you wish on your site.

Transfer from WordPress.com

  • If you're already running a blog which is powered by WordPress.com then you don't have to sacrifice your hard work to move over to Website Builder. Website Builder’s ‘Blog’ feature includes a sleek transfer tool that allows for your existing content to be uploaded as an XML file.
