Let us see the steps that we need to follow to create \ manage blogs.
To create a new Blog, go to CRM – Portals – Blogs
Create a new blog (specify the corresponding existing templates for Home, Page and Archive)
Saving the record, adds the new blog in the Portal.
We can add blog posts to the blog created.
Blog post within Portal: –
For Managing Blog Posts from the Portal, open the blog record in CRM and go to Author Roles
Create a new Web Role and add that role to the Author Roles and assign the same web role to the Contact (Portal User) in CRM.
- Below is our custom web role
- Add the role to Author Roles
- Open the contact record and assign this new web role.
- Login to the portal and open the test blog. The portal user will have the rights to edit, delete, new etc.
Hope it helps..
