Brand New - News/ Blog Tab!

Ifitstuff LTD @ December 5, 2014 3:29 pm

We are very happy to announce yet another new feature for our loyal ifit-PRO customers. Introducing the brand new personal news and blog tab that allows users to post news and blog entries right into their ifit-PRO websites. It is a long awaited feature and we are sure it will be welcomed by many. The new tab is found within your cPanel, and will output directly onto a brand new page on your website.

We designed the new system to be as simple and intuitive as possible, to ensure the process of adding new entries as quickly and as easy as is physically doable. Below is the process of creating a new entry. It's all very simple, very quick, but very powerful when used to its full potential. I've broken it all down into six little steps as demonstrated below;

 

The 6 Simple Steps

*           *            *           *           *

Step 1: Login to the cPanel with your regular ifit-PRO login details

Note:  Before we start; ensure you have the 'News' section checked in the 'General' tab, and then refresh your website. The 'News' tab will appear in your navigational bar. Selecting the new page will bring up something alike the following;

Step 2: Select the 'My News/Blog' tab. Positioned directly to the right of the 'News' tab.

Step 3: Select 'Write' to begin creating a new entry

(For future reference, you can come here to edit and delete entries.)

Step 5:  Add an image.

Click the 'Choose file' button to go to the file explorer window. From here you can locate an image you would like to upload to the entry. Once the file has been selected, it will automatically be added once the post has been saved.

Step 6: Scroll back to the top, and hit that 'Save' button. You are all done!

There is also a discard button that will remove all the content entered.

Let's take a look at it on the website and see how it turns out.

Advanced Features

The YouTube video box takes the embed code of a video. This is found by finding a video on YouTube and clicking the 'Share' link beneath the video in question. From here, clicking the 'Share' link will bring up the embed code needed for this box. Copy and past this code and you are all set.

Tags are incredibly useful and allow people using search engines to come across your website. Inputting key search terms or 'tags' into the 'Tags' box relevant to the new blog or news entry is likely to increase the amount of traffic being driven to your website.
