How to Create and Send Blog Articles
Blog Articles are a great way to advertise and market your holiday property/properties. SCRUMPY allows you to post to your blog straight from your admin - if you have social media accounts such as Facebook & Twitter attached your blog article once published will post automatically to them. If you are not sure on how you connect your social media accounts please see our user guide: http://help.scrumpy.co.uk/article/12-social-integration-linking
Creating a Blog Article
Navigate to Site Content, once selected you will see a blog articles section.
Click the 'Add Article' button located within the top right of your screen. Within here you will need to assign the article with a relevant title, if your article dates back to a few weeks ago you can change the Published at date to reflect this. The blurb should be a short summary on what the Article is about - this will be displayed underneath the title.
Within the content area you can add as much information as you like - if you're unsure on how you use content areas within SCRUMPY please see the following link: http://help.scrumpy.co.uk/article/65-content-areas
