Editor : Adding a Blog Post Summary Element

Drew Dunlop

When creating a blog post, you may wish to add a Post Summary element. This element provides a useful summary of your blog post, allowing someone to tell at a glance whether the article in question is relevant to them. This element will auto-fill from the summary field in the blog post settings, but you can add this element before filling in this field.


Prior to getting started, you will need to have the following:

Step by Step Walk Through:

  1. From your blog dashboard, you can access the blog post editor by clicking on the title of the blog post that you wish to edit.

  2. On the editor page, select Add Element, either in an empty row or below an existing element on the page.

  3. On the right-hand side of the screen, scroll down until you see the Summary element under the Blog: Posts heading. Click on this element to select it.

  4. The element will appear where you selected Add Element in your blog post. You may now drag and drop it as you would any element to adjust its position on the page. The element will auto-populate from the Summary field in your Blog Post Settings on the live and preview versions of the page.

  5. Congratulations! You have now successfully added a Post Summary to your blog post. Visitors to your page will see your provided summary text.
