PI BLOG - POST WITH PHOTOS
I recently bought a Raspberry Pi computer and decided to set up a blog about it and what I'd been using it for.
I decided to add the site onto my existing CMS account within the Noisegate CMS, and just use the Blog functionality for the site.
I did a search for templates and found Luis Zuno, a designer who offers some free templates in exchange for a tweet (find his template site here). After looking through the templates available, I chose the Vintage template as it had a good blog section. After a bit of customisation of the template to suit my needs I could plug it into the CMS and had a blog that is quick and easy to update.
- Fully responsive design - the site resizes and rearranges to fit to the size of the screen, whether being viewed on a desktop computer, tablet or mobile phone
- Tag cloud and search - using the CMS tags functionality blog posts can be tagged and a tag cloud automatically generated
- Date filtering - a listing in the right panel shows the months posts were made and the number of posts each month
- Contact from - I initially had a contact form on the site but took it off as it was never used apart from for spam
- Comments - there is the ability for readers of the blog to leave comments on each post, before the comment is displayed on the site, this needs some approvment
- Share functionality - each post has buttons to allow quick and easy sharing on social media sites
- Post to twitter - whenever I create a blog post, I can check a box which will automatically tweet it to my twitter account
- RSS - an rss feed is automatically generated of the blog posts
- Powered by Noisegate CMS - the whole site has the Noisegate CMS as a backend allowing me to add new posts easily
