How to Blog with Anuko CMS

Sometimes you may want to create episodic contributions to your website by writing about something. This techinque is called blogging, and the resulting website is called a blog. Anuko CMS has the blogging feature built-in.

How to Set Up a Blog

In Anuko CMS web pages can be of the following types:
  • Regular web page.
  • News page. When page is set up as news it gets additional user-definable attributes such as news date and headline. The headline gets displayed in the news column and the information is aggregated into an RSS news feed.
  • Photo-gallery. Such pages display images with annotations, which are organized in a gallery with a navigation bar.
  • Blog. This is the page type you need for blogging.
So, to set up any page as a blog simply set its type to blog.

So, what exactly is a blog and how is it different from a regular web page? Blog pages have a calendar on them. It allows you to enter multiple entries for different dates. A blog can also have a header, which is a common block of text to display on all blog pages.

Therefore, a blog page is like a normal page but can have multiple instances, each with a different timestamp and different content with one common text area from the header.

Setting Blog Header

To define blog header simply type something in the "Header" area. This information is shared between all pages in your blog. It will stay on top of each entry.

Creating Entries

To create an entry for a particular date:
  • Start editing your blog.
  • In calendar, click on a date your entry is for.
  • Type in content in the large text area and save the page.

To keep your blog attractive you'll need to have pictures in your content. Insert images into blog pages exactly in the same manner as in regular pages.

Editing Entries

To edit an entry start editing your blog and use the calendar to navigate to a date your entry is on. Existing content will be displayed in the text area. Just edit it and save your changes.

Deleting Entries

To delete any particular entry:
  • Start editing your blog.
  • In calendar, click on a date your entry is for.
  • Click on the Delete button.
Keep in mind that if you choose to delete an entry, it will be deleted permanently, so think carefully before doing this or you will simply need to type it in again.

To delete the entire blog delete all entries in it. When the last entry gets deleted, the entire blog gets deleted automatically.
