Accessing Your Page Settings

To access the blog page settings hover over the page that contains your blog. Click on the ‘page settings’ icon (the cog).

Step1


Page Name / Page URL / Page Title

Once you are on the page settings you can change the page name, change the page’s URL slug, and change the title that appears on the top of web browsers.

Step2


Hero Image

If you scroll further down the option to change the background/divider appears. If you hover over the image two buttons will appear giving you the options of either adding/changing an image or deleting the image.

Step3

Page background options

Use these options to change the location and behavior of your background image.

  • Position: This sets the starting position of the background/divider image
  • Size: The ‘cover’ option corrects the image to fit the container, while the ‘auto’ option uses the original image size
  • Repeat: This decides whether or not the image will be repeated, and if so, how it repeats
  • Attachment: determines of the image is fixed or scrolls with the page

Step4


Categories

Further down there are Categories. These are used to categorize posts. To add a new category click on the text box, type in your new category, and click enter.

Step5

If you would like to remove a category you can click on the ‘x’ button next to the category you wish to delete. A confirmation window will pop up. Click ‘Confirm’.

Step6


Featured Images / Post Display / RSS Feeds

Underneath Categories there are two options to either turn off or turn on. These options decide if you would like to display Featured Images for posts and if you would want to show the full Post content in RSS Feeds.

Step7


Social Sharing

Post Sharing allows you to decide what social media sites visitors are allowed to share blog posts to.

Step8


SEO (Search Engine Optimization)

SEO is the text that will show in the search results for the page.

Step9


Social Media Image Thumbnails and Descriptions

Towards the bottom of the Page Settings window there will be options to Upload an Image Thumbnail (the image that shows when the page is shared on social media sites) and to edit a Description (the description that shows when the page is shared on social media sites).

Step10


Saving Changes

Once you are finished changing your Blog Page Settings click Save.

Step11


Deleting Your Blog

If you would like to delete the blog page altogether you can click on the ‘Delete Blog’ button at the bottom, left hand side of the window. A confirmation window will pop up. Click ‘Confirm’.

Important: If you delete your blog, all of your posts associated with that blog will be permanently deleted. We strongly encourage you to consider the impact of this before removing a blog with published posts.
