All content in RBlog is divided into different types. Each type has it’s own great features.
Now RBlog supports two types of content:
- Topic. Topic is the most common type of your post. You can write in it everything you want.
- Link. Link is a small post, that points to some other resource in Internet. Link has a description (length of description can be set in settings.yml file) and url. It is very useful, when you want to save some interesting material or make a cross-posting.
It is very easy to add new types of content to RBlog. And in some upcoming releases we will add some new types. If you have any offers, contact us please.
