3. To the right top screen click on the orange Create button

4. A Create blog post pop-up will open

5. Open the Select a blog dropdown list and select either SpiderLabs Blog or Trustwave Blog. Once your selection is made click the Create blog post button

 

6. An empty blog is created 

 

Blog Settings

1. Before all the good stuff we need to first do all the settings. On the top right hand side just under the menu you click on the Settings button

Post Name and URL

  • Enter the name of your post in the Blog title
  • Leave the Blog drop down as is
  • When you enter the Blog title the URL is automatically created in the content slug. 
  • Last step is to go to the end of the content slug text box and put a forward / in to complete the URL

Last Step

Scroll down to the Author and Tags 

  • Search for the Author's name and select an Author. If there is no Author, select Blank as this is a required field.

 

  • If the Author does not exist Click on the +Create a new author link at the bottom of the dropdown list. A pop-up will appear, Enter the Autor Public Name and Last name and click the Create author button at the bottom. This is sufficient to create an author.

Tags if required can be selected from the existing lists of tags .

Do not create new tags. Refer new Tag requirements to the Web Team.

Use the Tag guide below to select an appropriate tag.

Need a tag Guide

 

Scroll down to Feature image. 

Trustwave Blogs have a Featured image whereas SpiderLab Blogs, News Releases and Software Updates do not.

Lets start with those that do not have a Featured image. Click on the ON toggle to turn this off.

Adding a Feature image

Firstly ensure that the image has been compressed on TinyPNG format using the compression tool. 

Click on the Browse images link not the Upload to bring the image into HubSpot. The reason will become clear shortly.

The Insert image pop-up will open. Now click on the Browse folders link as illustrated below

The folders list will open. Select the Blogs folder. Then the appropriate sub folder . 

Once you are in the correct folder, click the Upload images button. This will save the image to the correct folder. But we are not there yet.

A dialog box will open from which you can select the required image from you PC. 

When the image has uploaded you can now select the image (normally first on the list) and you are all done.

The warning that appears "Your image may not  work on social media post" is not a problem as we do not use that feature of the blogs.

Scroll down to Metadata. Add a short but punchy description of the blog or the first paragraph of your blog. Edit this description until it is within the recommended characters.

Once all the above has been completed close the settings pop-up, it will autosave.

You are now ready to get started writing away. Notice that the Blog Title and Feature image are now filled in. 

 

Enter your blog content

Scroll down past the Featured Image and click to add text link 

Text

You can copy and paste your content from a document or enter your content directly on to the blog surface.

A full rich text menu is available above. Just a few notes.



All H headers text colour should be changed to the dark grey as illustrated below.

Text Links 

 

There are 2 ways to insert a text link.

The 1st is to highlight the text in your article you would like to have a link on , then click on the text link icon in the rich text menu above

Click the  Insert button

The 2nd method is to click on the text link icon in the rich text menu above. The Insert Link dialog will open. The only difference on this method, from the 1st, is you enter your Link Text in this option.

The third setting will centre the image on the page. Text will be above and below the image. 

The last setting will allow text next to the image depending on the width of the image. The image will be right aligned.

Image Spacing

To allow padding to the right, left, top or bottom of an image you can click on the spacing and enter a value of the desired pixels you want to have around the image this will move the text away from the image edge.

Image Alignment

The first icon will allow you to set the gap between the preceeding text and the image.
