I am completely new to EpiServer CMS - I can do some basic editing and changing of pages, but that's all - and I want to add a blog on to our website. Can anyone point me to where the blog function is located and how to enable this (I have been told there is a blog included with the CMS).
We have been using the news section as a blog up until now, but I want to create a dedicated blogging space on the website.
Hi Russ, there is no built-in functionality for blog(s) in the Episerver CMS product. That would be something you as a partner would build on top of the CMS product (using your own page type for blog entry and possible listing page etc).
There is/used tobe a product Episerver Relate+ that had community functionality and blog feature. Seems it is hard to find from products anymore, but this page exists: https://world.episerver.com/documentation/Other-products/Episerver-Relate/ and instructions http://webhelp.episerver.com/relate/7.5/EN/
To be honest, I don't know if it has been discontinued. Someone from Episerver could confirm the current status of Relate+.
Russ, as Antti said, there is no built in blog function in Episerver.
Regarding relate+ it is a dead product.
There are many ways that you can fix a blog function inside a Episerver site, but has to be custom built
If you don't want to start from scratch you can use the Alloy Demo site and steal the blog code from it :)
Thanks, everyone. Sounds like we will need to get something bespoke.
I appreciate the help.
