Website Blog Module
The Contegro® Blog module is the foundation for dynamic discussions with your website viewers. Blogging is interactive and absorbing where discussions are updated on an informal basis by your company and your website visitors.
Contegro’s® Blog module is truly a resourceful way to facilitate discussions that relate to your business industry, products or services. Bloggers can comment by posting a reply – appearing instantly or by approval – or creating a new Topic. Levels of restricted access can be applied to discussions to segment public, website members and internal business with optional spam prevention for peace of mind.
Publishing your article is easy with a full HTML editor to add text, images, documents and links. A date picker helps with scheduling and expiry. Follow-on comments, Facebook commenting, email subscription, Comment Form and RSS functions are all integrated functions.
Comment approval with ‘noise’ control
An automated approval process can be activated to avoid unwarranted comments. Also, you can eliminate inappropriate comments simply by adding words to a ‘Noise’ list. This word filter is great feature for monitoring competitor spam or expletives and gives you confidence in content that is posted on your website.
Controlled Access for Members
Member (and group) level permissions can be applied to control access for website members such as; business partners, suppliers and customers. Restrictions can also be imposed on the Topic and Comment forms, restricting public to ‘read-only’ access, whilst members have full access to the Blog.
Smart Listing Options
Lists showing your latest or most popular articles can be added to any website page to ensure maximum exposure. Lists can also be ordered by ‘tags’. When your visitors view a page with a common tag; highlighted articles, products and images (for example) will dynamically show – irrespective of their categories or site tree location.
The Blog modules integrates into Contegro’s site-wide search function. When performing a keyword search, results (topics and comments) are ordered by relevancy.
