How to Create a Blog Entry

  • Head to the Blog section of your LomoHome*
  • Click the ‘Create new Blog Entry’ Button
  • Write your Blog – Give it a title, write a little summary text about your entry and then write the main text in the ‘Body’ text box.
  • You can also add photos to your blog post – You do it by using this code [Photo:xxxxxxxxx] and replacing the xxxxxxxxx with whatever number is at the end of the url of your photo, after the slash (/).
  • Then choose the time and date you want your entry published and click the ‘Create’ button – Just remember to publish the Blog today if you want your Piggies!
  • And Voila! You’ve got yourself a Blog Post!
