How to add a Blog Feed

In this tutorial we will walk you through how you can add a blog feed to your website. Blog feeds provide a convenient platform with which you can upload new content to your website.

Before We Start

You will need to log into Easy Sites and navigate to the website you wish to add this feature to. If you have misplaced your log in details, you can visit our Forgotten Passwords tutorial or alternatively, you can raise a support ticket and we will be in touch as soon as possible.

Step 1

From the default page, please open the Create a Page menu by clicking on the green “+ Create” button towards the top left:

You will then be presented with this pop-up window:

Step 2

You should be familiar with this window via our Create a Page tutorial, which offers a good explanation to all the options in the Page Type dropdown menu. Before inputting the name of the page, please change the Type to “News Feed”:

Step 3

After changing the Page Type, you should see the title of the window change to “Create a News Feed” as below. You can now select a name for your page. We would recommend keeping it simple, such as “Articles” or “Blog Posts”.

You can hit “+ Create Feed” to save your changes.

Step 4

You should receive a notification towards the top right of the screen to let you know the page has been successfully created, and you can find this new page in the default “Hidden” state at the bottom of your current pages.

You will need to toggle the visibility of this page by clicking on the word “Hidden”, and you may want to re-order this page to fit with your existing pages.
