Latest Blog Features
Want to write a blog post that goes live on your site at noon on Friday? Previously, the publish date was your only option for controlling when a blog post went live. You could write posts in advance, but those posts went live at 12:00am on the publish date. With the addition of the Publish Time on the Blog Post Basic tab, you now control the date and time of when a post goes live. If you want a post to go live on Friday at noon, all you do is set Friday’s date and enter 12:00pm as the publish time. If the publish time is not important to you, then simply leave the default time of 12:00am. The publish time is based on the time zone in your site's settings.
One popular display option for blog posts is List with Summary. This display option presents a list of blog posts in descending date order. Each entry includes the title, summary, and publish date. With this release, the List with Summary display now includes an option to place a “Read More” link at the end of each summary. The link text can be user-customized, so if “Read More” is too verbose for your tastes, you can change the link to simply “More…” or any other text that fits your style. The link displays in-line with the summary, and clicking the link displays the full blog post.
