How to Set up Blog's General Settings

Once you've already taken the first step and enabled the Blog Feature on your Sitebeat website, the next step to do is to configure your blog's General Settings.

Set up Your Basic Settings

Start seting up your blog's general settings using the steps below:

  1. Log In to access the Sitebeat dashboard.
  2. Under My Sites, click the Edit Site option on the website that you wish to manage.
  3. Note: If you want to edit a new site, you have to unpublish the current website and make your new site as your primary website.

    Under My Sites, click the [...] Ellipsis Icon on the top-right corner of the website to unpublish the current site. Click Unpublish Site, and then click Yes, Unpublish to confirm.

    Under My Domains, click the [...] Ellipsis Icon of the website that you want to replace as your primary website, then click Replace Primary. In the pop-up window, select the domain of the new website in the New Primary Domain list, then click Replace Primary. You can also click the Domains tab under My Sites to perform the necessary steps mentioned.

    You can now edit the new site that you wish to manage.

  4. Click Settings from the left-side menu, and then click Blog.

    Note: Make sure you have enabled Blog first before proceeding to these steps.

  5. Set the following:
    Blog Author Enter your desired blog author's name in the appropriate box.
    Posts URL Format Choose your desired URL format from the drop-down list. The chosen format will immediately display right below the drop-down.

These settings are automatically saved and applied every time you make changes. You've just successfully set your blog's general settings.
