Inserting and editing posts

  • Updated


General details


Sets the address of the post, as it has a similar function as the heading of a site. In terms of search engine optimization, the title should be as descriptive and accurate as possible without making it too long.

Lead or caption is a description shown on listing sites and search engine results. If, for example, the front page of a web site shows a few of the newest posts, the lead is often directly underneath the title. Note, that usually the content of the lead should be repeated in the text body.

You can edit the text with LianaCMS text editor. Read more about using the text editor here.



Categories specify what category/categories the article is included in. Among other things, categories enable showing only posts related to a specific topic. A post must always have at least one category.

You can also determine category-specific properties to posts, such as their own icon. Additional properties are enabled when a category is chosen.

More on categories can be read on the Categories page.



Publish date
Publish date defines when the post is visible on the site. If this is left empty, the post will be published immediately after saving.

Expire date
Expire date specifies the date when the post will be automatically hidden from the site. If this is left empty, the post will never expire.

Visibility determines is the post public or hidden. A hidden post is not visible to anyone and this can be used as an option to deleting a post.

Commenting is always hidden by default. If commenting is public, site visitors can comment the post. Commenting can be enabled for a blog.

The Writer field specifies the user who is credited with the post. The writer can be changed, however, if needed.

If you are modifyng a post, you can also delete it by ticking the "Delete the selected post" box and pressing save. Note! The action is irreversible. In the case that the post only needs to be removed from the site, it may be wiser to only hide it by clicking on the post and changing the visibility to hidden.
