The easiest way to create a new blog post is to copy one of your existing posts! This will copy over the four side widgets and tags (if you've done it properly on your last post!)

Otherwise, copy the template in the main Blog tree (/sitecore/content/Home/blog/post template NL/EN)

When you do this, keep in mind a few things:

  1. Make sure post is placed under correct category in the tree.
  2. Update the date of the post by clicking "Now" above Date
  3. Update Title, Menu title, and Meta title
  4. Update background image, make sure it has the blog stamp (C:\Users\...\...\EdenFrost Communications - Image Files\BLOG\I amsterdam Blog stamp.psd)
  5. Update/add appropriate tags - especially your name and the post category!
  6. Side widgets, in below order. Go to Presentation > Details > Final layout:
  •   Contact Person Widget: change the name at the end of the widget path to yours (or whoever the article is by). If not sure of the spelling or if not working, find the widget in the tree through "Browse".
  •   Related Cards Widget: there should be two. Leave the "default related cards widget" as is, and go to the other one. As with the Contact Person Widget: change the name at the end of the widget path to yours (or whoever the article is by). If not sure of the spelling or if not working, find the widget in the tree through "Browse".
  •   Download Widget: should be in there. Leave as is, no need to change. This displays all blog categories. If not there, it's /sitecore/content/Repository/Widgets/Download Widgets/Blog categories
  •   Recent Articlelist: should be in there. Leave as is, no need to change. This displays three recent posts. If not there, it's /sitecore/content/Repository/Widgets/Recent Articlelists/blog/recent posts show 3
