How to add a "journal" or "blog" section
The adding of a journal or blog section to a website, particularly a CMS, is something commonly requested. The process is quite straight-forward, but can be baffling for someone unfamiliar with Geeklog. This is a quick tutorial on adding a journal or blog to Geeklog, and will hopefully help you see how the Topics and Stories features work together.
To add new journal/blog entires, you will want to use the Stories feature. This will allow you to quickly create dated entries.
To keep your journal/blog entries together, you will want to assign them to a topic called "Journal" or "Blog" (or whatever you want to call it). This topic will need to be created before your stories can be assigned to them.
Step 1: Add the journal or blog topic
- Log into your website.
- In the Admins Only block, click the "Topics" link.
- Click on the "Create New" link at the top.
- Complete the fields in the form (see the Adding A Topic section for details on the fields), using "journal" or "blog" (or whatever you want to call it) in the Topic ID and Topic Name fields.
- Click the "Save" button.
