Creating a blog post is an excellent way to add unique content to your website and attract more visitors. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to create and publish a blog post on your website:
Access the Blog Posts Section
In your FMG admin, navigate to Blog > Blog Posts:
Add a New Blog Post
To create a new blog post, click on the "Add Post" button. This will take you to a new page where you can start writing your post.
Create Blog Content
Here, you can add your blog content:
Title: this will be the main headline on the blog post and appear on your blog's landing page
Author: you can choose to designate any of your team members as the author of a post
Post date: this will default to today's date, but you can be proactive and write several blog posts with future post dates and sit back and watch those blogs appear on your set at the scheduled date!
Note: if your content is not approved by compliance by your selected post date, the content will simply be published as soon as it's approved
Post content: this is your blog post! You'll recognize the editing tools available to you - similar to our "Rich Text Editor" sections. Feel free to enhance your post by incorporating various multimedia elements. You have the ability to include videos, images, attachments, and so much more!
Featured image*: the image you add here will appear next to your post summary on the main blog landing page, as well as on your post:
*Recommended image size: we recommend that the image layout be either landscape or square and approximately 600 pixels wide. The platform will resize the image to 125 pixels wide for the blog thumbnail image.
Preview and Save as Draft
Before publishing your post, you can preview it and make any necessary changes. You can also save your post as a draft and come back to it later.
Publish Your Post
Once you're happy with your post, click on the "Publish" button to submit your post to compliance. Once your post is approved, it will appear on your blog's landing page.
