This is it. To create your first post navigate to Content > Blog by aheadWorks > New Post this will land you directly at the New Post form.
The New Post form is quite huge that is why for further convenience we will split it into three steps:
Step 1: Title, URL key, schedule
At this step you are suggested to:
Step 2. Images, canonical URLs
Second, you need to add an image to your post and provided it with Title and Alt text. The image can be taken from the existing media files or uploaded from your device.
The Canonical URL option makes it possible to determine a canonical blog post URL if the post is assigned to several categories. This option allows you to avoid duplicate content issues.
Step 3: Short content, categories, tags
In the third step, you are suggested to decide if your post should have a Short Content, set the post to a particular category and decide on tags.
Short Content can prove useful if your post is content heavy and takes a couple of pages. What it does is instead of displaying the whole post on a Blog page it allows displaying only the contents of the Short Content field, thus saving blog page space and making it look neat.
Tags are one of the navigations tools provided by Blog extension. Every post is suggested to be tagged with relevant words or phrases to simplify further customer search for relevant information. All the tags are gathered in a tag cloud displayed at the blog Sidebar.
Step 4: Content, comments, meta description
In the fourth step, you are suggested to type in the blog contents, meta description and decide if you want your customers to comment on the post.
Content field column comes with native Magento WYSIWYG editor allowing text editing, inserting images, widgets, variables etc.
Step 5. Twitter cards, Open Graph tags, and blog post visibility options
The Open Graph markup acts behind the scenes and includes the following tags:
The provided Twitter Card tags can be manually added from the backend. You can add them either for the whole extension or a particular blog post with 'Twitter site account' and 'Twitter post author account' options.
The 'Enable post for customer groups' makes it possible to hide posts from particular customers if necessary.
That's it. Providing you are done with all five steps you can now click the button and your first blog post is ready.
