This guide explains how to use City Blogs

How do I move between my blog and dashboard?

  1. When you are viewing your blog, hover over the blog name in the tab on the top toolbar and a menu will appear.
  2. Select Dashboard.
  3. When you are viewing your Dashboard, select the blog title in the tab on the top toolbar to view your blog.
  4. If you have multiple blogs, hover over the blog you want to access from the My Sites tab and select Visit Site.

What is the difference between posts and pages?

  • Posts appear in reverse chronological order with the newest post on top.
  • Pages tend to be used for static content that does not need to be regularly updated.

See further guidance on difference between pages and posts.

How do I add a page to my blog?

Pages are not part of the chronological blog stream and are more suited to static content that does not need to be updated regularly. To add a page:

  1. From the Blog view, select + New.
  2. Select Page.
  3. Give your page a Title.
  4. You can add content (e.g. text, images, links) into the input field.
  5. Once you have finished, select Publish.

You can nest pages under other pages by making one the parent of the other. You can do this from the Page Attributes section of the Add Page/Edit screen by selecting the appropriate Parent page from the drop-down menu.

If you want to change the order of your pages:

  1. From the Pages menu on the blog Dashboard, select All Pages.
  2. Select edit on the page you want to set as your first page.
  3. From the Page Attributes section, input the Order number for the page. 1 is the first page, 2 is the second, etc.
  4. Repeat steps 2 & 3 for each page in your blog.
