Your website is a great tool to stay connected to your congregation. It is the first place people look for news and information. It is a great idea to add a regular updated section of the website with articles, thoughts, devotionals, and other useful information. The most common style of doing this is a blog. Blog is short for “web log” (a combination of two words “web” and “log”).

How to add a blog to a page

All navigation on your Sharefaith church website is structured through pages, so for a blog to be visible it must be inserted through a Page (not a Post).

  1. Log into your website admin.
  2. Create a page where you want your blog to appear.
  3. Type the word [blog] (include square brackets) where you want the blog to appear.

Control Which Posts Appear in the Blog

By default, all posts that are in the category “HomePage” will appear on your Home Page. All other posts will appear wherever you put [blog]. If you don’t want all other posts to appear whenever [blog] is used, or if you want to have multiple blogs then you can specify which category you want to be displayed. Blog posts are organized by categories. Assigning categories to posts will control where they appear.

Create a new category

  1. Create a new post or edit an existing post.
  2. On the right side of the screen is a Categories box.
  3. Click “Add New Category.”
  4. Enter your Category Name.
  5. Click “Add New Category” button.
  6. Your new category will appear in the category list.

Assign a category to a post.

  1. If you are not already doing so, create a new post or edit an existing post.
  2. On the right side of the screen is a Categories box.
  3. Select one or more categories you  wish your post to appear in.

Control which category gets displayed.

  1. Create or edit a page you wish your blog to display on.
  2. Type in the word [blog] inside square brackets wherever you want your blog to appear.
  3. Amend cat="category name" after it (Using your category name in place of “category name”). Keep the category within quotes. The end result will look like:
    [blog cat="devotional"]

Note: It is possible to add multiple categories by separating the category name by a comma. Example: [blog cat="devotional, news"].
