Adding Articles to Dolphin 7
Written by Mscott Wednesday, 21 December 2011
In today’s blog, I will show you how to add articles and other content in Dolphin 7. Before we begin, we need to install the Articles module. A step by step guide on installing the Dolphin 7 base modules can be found here.
Once we have the module installed, we can access it by clicking “Articles” under the “Modules” heading on the left side menu.
If you scroll down past the basic settings, you will see the area for adding new articles.
Now, simply add the title, a brief summary (200 characters by default) and the body of the article. The date will already be filled in with the current date and time. If you wish you can add any descriptive tags for your article. Now select a category and click “Post” at the bottom of the screen.
Once your article has been added, you will see it listed at the bottom of the screen. Now you are able to publish, unpublish, make your article “featured” or delete it all together.
Done! You can now add as much content to your site as you please, which will also help drive traffic from the search engines and attract new visitors!
