    • How do I add a new blog post to my Website Builder?

      Our Website Builder makes it easy to start your blog! All of our templates start you off with a "blog" page that is already set up for you (if you don't have this page, find out how to add a blog page). To add a new post to your blog, please follow these steps: Sign in to your Dynadot account. Click on the "Website Builder" tab on the main menu. Click on the "edit" link next to the Website Builder you want to use. Click on your blog page from the navigation bar. Click "Add Post" at the top. Here you can add your title and content as well as set whether the post is visible or hidden and the date and time it was published. Once your post is ready, you can choose to "Save Draft" or "Publish" at the top. You can also "Delete" your post or simply click "Back" and discard any changes you've made if you don't want to publish or keep your post. To set whether comments are on or off, your categories, tags, and your author name and image, click "Post Options" at the top (it will prompt you to save changes). You can also set this after you've published it on your blog by hovering over the title and clicking "Post Options." Please note that you can only have up to 6 blog posts with our free version. Upgrade to get more blog posts, pages, and tools. Learn more about our Website Builder blog.

    • How can I set up my blog on your Website Builder?

      Our Website Builder makes it easy to start your blog! All of our templates come with a "blog" page that is already set up to allow you to easily manage posts, add categories, archive posts, and more. If you would like to add another blog page to your site, please follow these steps: Sign in to your Dynadot account. Click on the "Website Builder" tab on the main menu. Click on the "edit" link next to the Website Builder you want to use. Click on the "Page" icon (the one that looks like a piece of paper) on the left-hand tool bar. Click "Add Page" at the top. Please note that if you are using our free version, you can only have 5 pages (also you are limited to 6 blog posts). If you have too many pages, you'll need to delete one or upgrade to access more pages, blog posts, and tools. Select "Blog" under "Page Type" and then make sure to add the navigation title you want (it does not have to be "blog"), and the page layout you want. Click "Save & Edit" at the top to save your new blog page. Learn more about our Website Builder blog.
