Managing Blog Categories

Separating your posts into different categories allows you to display different posts on different sections of your website, or simply to allow visitors to browse your posts by topics of their interest.

You can manage your blog categories from the "POSTS" button from the left side bar and then select "Blog Posts" from the submenu. This will bring you to the Blog Posts Manager, where you can manage your categories under the Categories tab. On the right you can create a new category by typing in the category name and then clicking "+ Create". On the left side of the Categories tab, you can view what blog posts are currently listed in that category by clicking the eye icon.



Password Protect a Category

You can create private categories that only visitors with a password can view. To create a password protected category, click the padlock icon  next to your category to begin. You will then be brought to a page where you can type in your password. Optionally, you can add a message for your visitors and type in custom text for the password field and submit button that your visitors will see when prompted to enter in their password. Once this is all filled out, simply click "Save Changes". Password protected content will not be searchable by the Blog Search tool.



Rename a Category

You can rename a category at any time by simply clicking the pencil icon  next to your category, this will allow you to type in a new name on the right hand side under Rename Category and then "Save".


Delete a Category

You can delete a category by simply clicking the trash icon  next to the category you want to remove. Please note this will not delete the posts inside of the category. You will need to move the blog posts inside of the category to a new category first or these will all be moved back to the General category (if the General category no longer exists, they will be moved to a different remaining category).


Assigning Blog Posts to a Category

When creating a new post, select the Blog Posts Options tab and select the category of choice from the Category dropdown menu. To assign an existing blog post to a new or different category, edit the blog post in the Blog Posts Manager (located in POSTS > Blog Posts) by clicking the pencil icon , from here you can click the Blog Posts Options tab to assign a different category.
