Create a Blog Post


ArtSites includes a basic blogging system. Here are the instructions on creating a blog post.
(Please note that earlier versions of ArtSites, this feature was called "News". So, for our earlier artists, you'll need to replace the word "Blog" with "News" in the instructions below.)

  1. Go to the 'Blog' (or 'News') tab in your Administration Panel
  2. Click on the 'Add a Blog Item' link under Blog Items
    (or 'Add a News Item' under News Items for our earlier artists)
  3. You will see the following Blog Properties
    Blog Properties
  4. Type in your Blog 'Title'
  5. Fill in the 'Date'. Blog posts will be displayed with the newest post at the top of the page.
  6. Click in the 'Message' text box and wrtie your blog post. It can include text, images, videos, etc.
  7. Be sure to click the 'Add Blog Item' (or 'Add News Item') to save your work!

You can now go to your website to see your blog post.

Once you have a blog post, you also have the option of sending it to your mailing list. We recommend that you only do this periodically, e.g. for Exhibit Announcements, or other events that you want to promote. Here is how to send your blog post to your mailing list.
