You can learn how to use PageFly to create a blog page through this article, so as to make the layout and design of the blog better.
Before learning how to create blog post pages, the following video will introduce you to the basics of PageFly blog pages.
This video tutorial will help you gain a clear understanding of how to create a blog page.
Step 1: Create a blog page
Two ways to create blog post pages:
- In the PageFly main interface
- In the “blog page” main operation interface
In the PageFly main interface
You can quickly create a blog page through any of the following options:
- (+) icon:
- [Create new page] button
The page setup will then pop up. To create a new blog page, select the Blog Posts option in the Page Details, as shown in the image below.
In the “blog page” main operation interface
Select the blog page option in the page menu to open the main operation interface of the blog page. In the “Blog Page” main operation interface, click the “Create Blog Post” option.
The page setup will pop up. But this way, the “Page Details” automatically selects the “Blog Post” option. That is, you don’t have to select the “Blog Post” option like in the first way described in the paragraph above.
Blog details section
When you select the ‘Blog Post’ option, the page will display ‘Blog Details’.
Above will show the blog categories you have created in your Shopify blog. In this example, there are 2 categories such as “Blog List” and “News”.
You can add more blog posts in many different blog categories in Shopify, and blog posts from them can be added to your blog page.
You can choose from 4 types of blog options are:
- release news
- assign tags
- featured image
- comment form
Page optimization is used to optimize page configuration. This is a new setting in PageFly version 2.5.0.
You can choose to enable Lazy Load Images for your pages . As you scroll down on a page that has been set to “lazy load images”, the images below will gradually load. It is suitable for all images such as series images, background images, product images, etc.
Lazy load images option helps optimize page load speed. Once enabled, your pages will load super fast.
All page types (except password pages) will display a “Header and Footer”. In this section, you can choose to show or hide the page header and footer. To edit headers and footers, visit Page Theme Settings .
After completing the settings in “Page Setup”, click the “Next” button at the bottom. Then open the template library to choose a page template to start creating pages.
The template library will guide you as shown below.
Step 2: Update content and design
Because the Cipi template is found in the “Blog Post” page type, we chose the Cipi template here as an example. You can change to other templates and add information according to your store needs. Take a quick look at the Cipi templates.
You can display a blog or a list of blogs in your Shopify store page using the blog post element.
