The Components of a Blog Post
Every time you create a post you’ll need to ensure the following are correct:
- Setting the Difficulty Level
- Post Title
- Featured Image
- Forum topic URL
- Post Content
- The Excerpt
- Schedule/Publication Date
If you’re working on an imported post, most of the above will be already set. This won’t always be the case so you’ll need to ensure the content of is of a suitable standard before the post is published.
