SoSimple CMS Upgrade: Feeding Blog Categories Into Content Boxes

December 18th, 2017 by Kristen Yeager


Recent updates to SoSimple's CMS now allow users to feed in specific categories from blog posts. Now, when feeding a blog page type into a dynamic content box, users have the option of choosing one, multiple, or all categories from any one blog page to feature in the content box feed.

To do this, first set up a new content box as a Dynamic Content Box (or edit an existing dynamic content box). Then, choose "Blog" from the Page Type dropdown menu, and choose the specific blog page that you wan to feature from the Page dropdown menu. When you click into the Blog Categories section, it will provide a dropdown automatically populated with the Categories assigned to that page. You can choose one or multiple categories to feed into the content box. If you would like to feed articles from all categories on the blog page, just leave this section blank! Once you have chosen your categories, click the blue Submit button to save your changes.

See this new update in action at the bottom of our AEC Industry page here. This dynamic content box titled "Recent AEC Website Launches" is pulling in only articles marked with the "AEC Industry" category from our main News & Announcements page, making it relevant to the page's core content.
