Can anyone give me some guidance for how to plan my blog which i want to add to my site: http://www.muzicera.com
I don't know whether i should create new blog pages for every post or keep to one page and keep on adding new posts.
I want to add a picture and a widget to every post.
I want the latest post appear first on one page without any other posts showing on that page.

I'm quite confused so plz someone help me!

Hi Fizanali,
Here's a thread about the blog feature: http://getsatisfaction.com/SynthaSite/topics/how_do_i_create_a_blog_in_synthasite that might be helpful.

To give you some ideas regarding your questions: I would say that the best way to manage your blog is to have your blog be one page on your site, then you can keep adding new posts to it. This will keep it more organized and allow you to put Blog on your Nav bar if you choose.

One of the ideas behind a blog is to allow people to subscribe to your RSS Feed, you can drop this widget onto the blog page. When people subscribe to your blog (RSS Feed) they will get a notification each time you add a blog post. You don't need to keep track of e-mail addresses, the widget takes care of this for you.

You can set how many blog posts you want to display on your blog page by clicking on the edit icon (little pencil) in the left hand corner of the main blog area.

If you choose to only display one blog post on the main part of the page, then you could drop in the Recent Posts widget so your visitors can check out your previous posts; there is also a widget for archiving posts. You can choose from a variety of blog widgets by clicking on Blogging in the far right sidebar.

To add an image post you should click Blog Manager > New Post > Image Post. I have found that posting images works best this way.

If you have more questions let me know. I'm not sure if you celebrate Thanksgiving, if you do... Happy Thanksgiving!
