How to create a blog post with GemPages

In this article, you will learn how to create a blog post with GemPages.

What is a blog post on an eCommerce site?

A blog post is a standalone page that tells readers about your brand, products, or any related fields. Blogs help merchants engage more customers and build up topical authority for SEO.  

Can I edit an existing blog post?

Since there are differences in coding between GemPages and other platforms, it will be better and simpler if you create your own new blog post with GemPages. Don't worry, with our powerful design tools, you will easily build a blog post within minutes.

Create a new blog post from scratch

  • Step 1: Click on Blog posts on the left sidebar of the Dashboard, and you should see the Create a blog post button on the right. Go ahead and hit on this button.

  • Step 2: In the main dashboard, click on Create new page.


  • Step 3: Configure your blog post in the pop-up setting box.
    • Give your blog post a name

    • Hide or show the Header & Footer to optimize your blog post (optional)

  • Step 4: Click on Create at the right bottom of the pop-up to complete this step. 

Design your blog post

To make it simple for users, we have designed a default framework with significant sections such as the blog title, the date this post was written, and a list of your most recent articles. All that is left to do is to design the main content of the blog.

 


Incorporating just 4 elements (Heading, Image, Article list, and Row), you can quickly create a blog post as below.

Publish a blog post to your online store

There are two methods you can use to publish your blog posts:

  • Step 1: From GemPages' editor, click on the Publish button at the top-left corner.



  • Step 2: From Shopify's Admin Panel, navigate to Online Store, and select Blog post. Access the blog post and enable its visibility.

Add a featured image and tags to your blog post

  • The featured image (also known as the post thumbnail) is the image that is displayed on your blog post list and when sharing your post on Social media. In Shopify's blog configuration page, click Upload image and select an image from your computer. 


  • On the same page, you can also add tags for the blog so that it can be searched more quickly. 

Add blog posts to link with menu items

To link the blog post with Menu, you can follow Shopify's instructions here

Please be well advised that blog posts created by GemPages will be also in sync with the one listed in the Blog post of the Shopify admin panel. Therefore, if you delete a blog post from Shopify, it will also be removed in GemPages.
