How to get an awesome blog with your PageCloud site

Although we don't have a native blog capability in PageCloud yet, here are some approaches you can take to create a blog.

  1. Use a blogging tool and link to it from your PageCloud site.  For example, here is our PageCloud blog that we link to from our home page and is hosted externally with hubspot.com. There are many blogging platforms out there to choose from, some that will be free and offer you a standard URL to link to, or other paid options that can give you the option for a custom subdomain, such as blog.yourdomain.com.
     *Please note, this option would lead your viewers outside of your PageCloud site to an external blogging site.


    Some options to look through are
       Ghost.org
       Blogger.com
       Medium.com
  2. Many of our users have created blog-style articles as separate pages within PageCloud, duplicating their previous pages to serve as a nice starting point for the format. Then from there, they create snippets of the article to show on a main page that will then link back to the detailed article pages.
  3. We have a squeegee feature found here: Squeegee Tool that will allow you to easily move your existing content down when adding in new articles if you'd like to position those at the top of the list. 
  4. You can embed commenting in your blog page using one of our featured integrations, Disqus.   Find out more here.
