I am trying to allow users to create blogs on my page but i am having trouble figuring out how to allow them to create a title, a description, choose a category and then have everything save when they press the button “Post Blog”
I have figured out how to do it but how do i allow users to create hastags
You can’t do hashtags on input at the moment. It has been requested.
It is possible there is a Blockspring block that would extract them for you.
I ended up using user defined categories in place of hashtags.
I don’t really understand what you mean by user defined categories
So instead of …
Whoa awesome #pizza here.
I had a category called “pizza” that the user could tag the entry with. Not ideal, but it was the best I could do.
@NigelG … your solution to the #problem was to use categories, in the same way that Blogger does, by the looks of it. But how about adding images to the blog. I can see from the Rich Text Input you can add images by URL, but that’s not very user friendly. Did you come up with any other ideas??
I started to look at multi image upload, but struggled, so decided it wasn’t needed for now.
I’m currently building a CMS and came across this thread. I got around the image issue by building a series of blocks that a user can add/remove. Looks like this:
Aha, so you build up text (assume rich text) and images as you go along ?
Yea I originally had a multiline input with a rich text popup to edit the text which looked better, but this was easier.
