How To Change Connected Content In a Blog

This article is for new blogs created after 3/17/19.  Find help with the old blog version here.

For convenience, the blog title, author and image are connected to post settings by default. This means that when you create a post, these elements will be pre-populated.  

Making changes is simple – you can change the content for each post or modify the connections to display exactly what works for your business.

  1. Click Blog from the left menu panel
  2. Open the post you want to modify by clicking on the image, title or editing tool
