2. Start writing - Getting started on GoNevis
So your blog settings are updated and now its time to the magic!
Go ahead and click on "Write" link in the sidebar, let's check the sidebar and the header of the write page.
On the top left, next to the back button, you can see the text tools but there's more you can do like sharing media links and get view the embed on your post.
Copy link of SoundCloud, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter and other social media and the editor will handle the rest 😉.
On the right side of the header, there's the "Publish" button that saves and publishes your post, next to it (the eye icon) will show you a preview of your blog post (works for draft posts too) in mobile, tablet and desktop sizes. To view it in a new tab, click on the "View on blog" button.
Next to it you can see a cog icon, that's the sidebar toggle and after that the light bulb icon, click to go full dark mode!
Clicking on the cog icon (located at the right side of header) will open up the sidebar for you.
On the top of the sidebar "Update" button and close icon are located. Clicking on "Update" will save your post without changing its status (published, draft).
Below them, there are some expandable sections to go through and at the bottom of the sidebar, there's the "Delete post" option.
Status selection to change from "Publish" to "Draft" or vice-versa.
Start publication date input indicates the date to show to public as publication date. Setting a future date will automatically publish the post at that time.
Editor comes with an auto-saving feature and you can discard all the changes by clicking the "Discard changes" button that reverts back to the last time you updated your post.
The "Add tags" input is an auto-complete input that means you can start typing the tag name/slug and select it from the list.
If the tag you want doesn't exist, you can go to the "Tags" page and add tags there with details (name, slug, description and image) or you can just type in the tag and press tab which will create that tag automatically.
An important part of the post is the cover image, provide a cover image to make your post give the first look you want to the visitors.
When you add an image to your post and cover image is not, that first image will be used as post cover (you can remove this in the section).
"Slug" is the URL of your post, you can modify this or leave it to be auto generated.
The meta description tag is the 160 character snippet used to summarize a web page's content. Search engines sometimes use these snippets in search results to let visitors know what a page is about before they click on it.
There are some checkboxes too, you can prevent users to comment on your post (uncheck "Enable commenting") or set your post as a featured/pinned post (will show up first in your blog) or set this post as a page (will show up in "Pages" page).
