Anybody knows? Could it be a new feature for Shopify in the future?
thank you

I would assume this should be possible since they both use similar technologies to operate… but I would also assume blogging is not on the top of Shopifys’ priorities.

I have also requested more blogging features such as taggin (similar to wordpress and shopify products), with no response. They have been consistently adding features. So maybe one day…

Have you tried posterous.com. Not strictly what you were after but it will do the trick. Just create a posterous account then use the “autopost” feature to auto-post to your shopify/twitter/facebook etc accounts.

Posterous works a treat once it’s set up. I highly recommend that route.

yep, have done it now! but how do you change the “Posted by Posterous” at the bottom of the post? I tried to modify the article.liquid but it didn’t work. I guess I need to change something on posterous. anyone knows? thank you

You need to modify blog.liquid as well, not just article.liquid. Hard-code the Posted by information in both templates. That’ll solve your problem.

Wherever you see:


by {{ article.author }}

Replace with:


by Fanny Abitbol

If you have many contributors to your blog, use logic. Make Fanny your Posterous contributor:


by {% if article.author == "Posterous" %}Fanny Abitbol{% else %}{{ article.author }}{% endif %}
