Our next goal is to setup our blog. Let’s return to the local site to continue working there.

Hit the “Blog" link in the navigation bar.

Click on the "Edit page" button in the navigation to change back to Edit Mode. Choose "Page" in the django CMS toolbar and then select "Advanced settings...”.

Django CMS allows you to add Django applications to your CMS. On the "Advanced Settings" page, scroll down to the dropdown called "Application" and select "NewsBlog." 

Then, click "Save" on the bottom right and publish the page.

You’ll notice that this page is pretty empty and not yet properly setup with our theme. 

Before we start editing the template, let’s add two example blog posts so we have some content to work with. 

  1. Click on the “Create” button in the CMS toolbar and choose “New news/blog article.” Then hit “Next.”
  2. Enter a title and some content of your choice, then hit “Create.”
  3. Repeat steps 1) and 2) to create a second blog post.

The last step is to publish your blog posts. Simply edit each entry and make sure the "Is published" checkbox is selected.

You can open an overview of all your blog article by clicking on "News & Blog" in the toolbar followed by "Article List...". Scroll to the right and make sure all articles are published.
