Atlas Blog Post Page Type

Last updated 03.29.24

The pre-formatted ATLAS - Blog Post Page Type is used to create and store blog post content. Blog Post Pages are organized using Blog Month Pages and then automatically featured on the ATLAS Blog Page type. Blog post content can also be featured on other site pages using the Blog List or Blog Feed Widgets.

Getting Started

The ATLAS Blog features a tag cloud generated by the tags added to each of the blog posts. It's valuable to consider gathering a document of tags that could be important to the blog audience. The tags are added to each blog post.

In addition, each blog post page can be categorized by selecting "Categories" from the Properties menu. Categories are an additional way to filter blog posts appearing in the Blog List widget.

1. While the Blog Month is selected in the Pages Application, click the plus icon to add a new page to the content index
2. Select ATLAS - Blog Page Post Page Type from list of available page types
3. Select ATLAS Blog Details Template and click "Continue"

4. Complete properties listed below
5. Click Save

If your blog post is dated to the present, the post will be published to the blog automatically and immediately. If you set a publishing date in the future, the post will not appear until then.


  • Post title (required) – text entry field for a concise blog post title
  • Post date (required) – Select date from calendar interface (note dating in the future means that you can schedule when a post will appear)
  • Post summary – short descriptive paragraph (recommended)
  • Post text (required) – Full text of blog post which may include photos, graphics, text and links.
  • Tags – Enter tags separated with comma. Example: dogs, “angry birds”, cats
OG Tags
  • Facebook OG (Open Graph) Tags – the Open Graph protocol enables you to tell Facebook how your shared content should be displayed. Adding these insures the highest quality Facebook post. Defining these four is recommended: 
    • og:title – by specifying this tag, set the title of the blog post as it will appear on Facebook without any extraneous data
    • og:image – insert the url of the image that appears when someone shares the content to Facebook. Using additional image properties, such as og:width and og:height can help achieve a high-quality preview image. Not specifying this means the default main blog post image will appear.
    • og:url – add the specific URL of the blog post detail page
    • og:description – provides blog post summary - a brief description of the content, usually between two and four sentences. This will be displayed below the title of the post on Facebook.
  • Facebook Image – Select image from Media Library Application. The ideal image size for a Facebook image post is 720px, 960px, or 2048px wide, with flexibility in the corresponding height

Custom FieldsTitle Image – clicking the Select button opens a dialog box allowing you to select an image via the Media Library Application. This image displays on the list on the page displaying all blog posts. It is recommended to use 175 x 175 px, otherwise the image could be cropped.
