One of the most requested features that we get on Highwire is the ability to create and manage your own blog directly through your Highwire admin. We are happy to announce that we have completed this feature! Highwire now offers a fully integrated blog to help you get more involved with your customer community.
With our new blogging platform, you can publish detailed blog articles, categorize using tags and engage discussions with moderated commenting system.
Where can I see an example?
You can view an example on our Benchmark demo theme which has a customized blog theme at http://benchmark.highwire.com/blog
How do I get started?
To enable your blog and start posting, just visit the "Blog" section under the Marketing menu. You will be asked a few questions to get your blog started. Once your blog is set up, you can start publishing articles by adding posts.
What's the URL for my blog?
Your blog will be located as a sub-directory of your stores domain. ex: http://www.mystore.com/blog
How do I customize my blog?
We added two additional templates to the template system specific for blog pages. If the blog.html and blog_post.html files doe not exist, we'll use a generic blog template. We've done our best to make the generic template work with your existing theme, but there may be a few inconsistencies.
If you are using the Benchmark theme, you will want to download or re-install to obtain the latest blog templates. If you want to customize it further, you can view our template documentation at:
