Can I change the default blog in the dropdown pick list?

When creating a new blog post, I can select one of two blog names to "file" it under: the default "news" (which I don't use) or the newer one I created called, "alerts."   Since "news" was the original, it sits atop the pick list and is the default selection, but I would like to make "alerts" the default so I don't have to remember to select it each time. Is there a way to do this?  Thanks!

Hey, @CraigRR!

 

There's no way to rearrange the order of how the blogs are listed on the dropdown menu. Since you don't use the News blog, I suggest deleting it instead so only Alerts appears on the Blog dropdown menu within the blog post editor. If you would like to delete it, you can follow the steps below.

 

  1. In your Shopify admin, go to Online Store > Blog posts.
  2. Click Manage blogs at the top of the page.
  3. Click the blog you wish to delete, in this case, News.
  4. Click Delete blog on the lower left-hand side of the page.
  5. Click Delete on the pop-up.

It's great to know that you're utilizing the blog feature. This is really helpful for your website's SEO (Search Engine Optimization) as blog posts can increase the likelihood of your website appearing on search engine results. Make sure you're using relevant keywords that get a high search volume so search engines can show your blog posts and your website to interested viewers.
