I have brooklyn theme store and I would like to categorize my blog e.g news, diy, legal and other categories.
I have not find online how to do it. Hopefuly someone can help me.
My name is Lizzy and I’m from the support team at Shopify.
Within the admin there is a built in system for categorizing blogs! You can create different blogs to house your blog posts. These essentially are categories! The default blog is called News, however you can create others. This screenshot shows a quick overview of the blog section in the admin:
We also have an entire section of our Help Center all about Blogs!
Once you have your blogs (categories) set up, you can create links directly to them under Online Store>Navigation. Under your current blog menu option, you could build a drop down menu that lists each category you've made!
How do you use your blog posts to promote sales on your site? Do you share them on social media or any other places to drive traffic to your store?
Feel free to continue our conversation here and share any questions you have on what I've said!
Hello, this post is really helpful thank you - I need to categorise blogs & can see how to do it from this. However, my question is ... from my Blog link on my nav bar / menu, I still want to be able to link to all blogs and, importantly, have a URL/handle that can be used to link to all blogs, rather than a specific category. How would this work? thank you
I'm happy to hear that my advice above was helpful!
A simple solution to set up what you're looking for would be to include all of your blog posts in the same category and call it something like "All". That way you could simply link to that page and all of your blog posts would appear! The URL for that would be - youstoredomain.com/blogs/all.
That would work if you weren't hoping to also use the blogs to separate categories. If you were also hoping to use that feature and have multiple blogs, there isn't currently a built in way to access all blog posts in the store on one page. I can understand how this would be something business might be looking for however, and will make sure to share your question with our development team so that they are aware this is something merchants on Shopify would use!
I recommend keeping an eye on the Shopify Changelog here to catch all of the tweaks to the platform as we release them.
I can say that this is a very difficult topic for me. Honestly, I tried to figure this out but failed. And I realized that I should go to experts who understand this. So I found a guy who's good at SEO. And he helps to make sure that my blog has the necessary number of categories and makes it successful for the SEO. I also found a site with blog content writing services, they provide quality content to make a blog interesting and informative for visitors. And I manage this process and find new interesting ideas for my blog.
I'm trying to get blog posts to appear in multiple categories. I was told to duplicate the post and use the URL for categories sorting but that is not very clean? The photo is uploaded multiple times, the copy is repeated on the site, too many URLs etc - none of this is good for SEO. Experiences in wordpress but new to shopify and content creating for a client. Need some help!
The posts are generally recipes so want to tag/categorize by recipe type - salad, plant-based, keto-friendly etc.
