Creating Blog Posts and preview

I would like to know how we can preview our blog posts before scheduling them to go live. It would be a helpful opportunity as you want to make sure your blog is as visually pleasing as you hope your content is helpful.

Hello. We want to help you out but need a little bit more information. Are you working on a campaign or your website through constant contact?

I am working on the website. Is there a better way to bring it from a campaign into my blog page?

Hello @BrianF879 ,

 

If you're needing to connect campaigns you've created in Constant Contact and make them blog posts, there are a few different ways you could go about doing it.

If you're not worried about any links being clickable - you can use the Print / Download tool to get a JPG or PNG version of the campaign. If you need the links clickable, you can either download the campaign as a PDF, or you can take the Share link from a sent email campaign and hyperlink that in your blog.

I would like to preview my blog posts as well before they are scheduled. Do you know if there is a way to do this?

Hello @PattyV20,

 

You can preview the blog posts as well as the entire website by clicking on Preview up in the top right-hand corner of the website. Thanks!

I’m not seeing a preview option on the blog post area.

Hello Zoe H. 

Yes you can preview your entire site before publishing. But the blog and the website are published separately. I can publish my website and have a draft of a blog and it not be visible in the website preview. The only way I can view my blog site is to publish them and they go live. I want a live preview of my blog posts, as I get when I preview my website before publishing. This does not happen on the blog site and is not part of the website preview. You need to recheck your product. What we are looking for is a live preview on the blog site so we can see what the post will look like just as we can see our website preview before it goes live. Thanks and have a great day in the Lord!

Yes, I agree with Brian; it would be great to have the option to preview a blog post before it goes live. 

Would this be possible, Zoe H. ? We would appreciate it very much.

 

Hello @PattyV20 and @BrianF879,

 

Thank you both for your feedback! I recommend giving our Website Builder team a call for more information on this, as they will be the experts! Thanks.
