To promote your website organically and to rank higher on search engines, Blogging can be an extremely effective tool if done the right way! With a Jumpseller store, you have an option to use the "Built-In" Blog feature. This feature can be used with all themes and works as a part of the store instead of being an extension.


Built-In Blog

By default when creating your store you will find in the page section of your administration panel the "Blog" and "Blog Post" pages.

The "Blog" page

This page will contain all posts. Here, you can write a brief description of the blog or your store. It is important that you always have the Blog Category and the Blog Template selected.

Add publications to my blog

To add publications to your blog, you must go to the Pages section of your admin panel and click "Add Page" in the upper right corner.

Your blog posts should be assigned the Post Category and the Post Template.

Add a featured image to your post

You can add a featured image to your publications, for this you must click in the section image at the bottom, and select from your computer the image you want.

Integrating an external Blog

If you already have a Blog on an external platform to Jumpseller, you can still link it to your Online Store.

  • Go into your admin panel and enter the Navigation section under Themes.

  • There you will see Blog listed as a menu item by default (might not be visible if you removed it in the code editor beforehand), and you can click on it to show some input fields.

  • From the drop-down menu of Link Type choose External Url. Paste the Url in the next bar and name the menu item as you wish. If you would like your blog to use your Jumpseller store's domain name, you'll need to use a subdomain.

You can choose to always open this in a new window when clicked or not.

Once you save the changes and visit your store, you will see the Blog button has been linked to your external Blog.
