In order to display your blog posts on your storefront, you must set these up within your Shopify settings under Online Store > Blog posts.


Step 1: Create a Blog

 

As each Blog post is housed within a Blog, the first step is to set up a blog. Your online store has a default blog called News. You can use it or create a new blog with a custom name.

 

Method 1: If you have not created a blog post

  1. Within Online Store > Blog posts, click Create blog post
  2. Enter a title for the Blog post.
  3. Enter content for the Blog post.
  4. Scroll down to Organization on the right.
  5. Click on the Blog drop-down and select Action > Create a new blog.
  6. Enter the blog name in the Blog title field.
  7. Set Visibility to Visible.
  8. Click Save.

  1. Within Online Store > Blog posts, go to Manage blogs.
  2. In the upper right-hand corner, select Add blog.
  3. Under Title, enter the name of your blog.
  4. Click Save.

 


Step 2: Create a Blog Post

 

Once you have created a Blog to house your posts, you can create your first Blog post.
