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).
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.
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.
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
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.
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’.
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.
Post Sharing allows you to decide what social media sites visitors are allowed to share blog posts to.
SEO (Search Engine Optimization)
SEO is the text that will show in the search results for the page.
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).
Once you are finished changing your Blog Page Settings click Save.
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.
