Blog Articles in Axis LMS

One of the many widgets available to use on your Axis LMS websites is the Articles Widget. Drawing inspiration from WordPress, this widget allows Axis LMS administrators (or their sub-admins) to author their own blog articles to be published in their Account and Learning Portal websites.

To access and work with Articles, you’ll need to begin by opening your System tab, then selecting Site Design and Articles (Blog).

Creating an Article

When creating articles, there are three pieces of content you’ll be required to fill out: Title, Category, and Body.

The Article Title is how you and your visitors will be able to identify this Article.

The Article’s Category is how the admin will be able to filter which listing this Article appears in.

The Body of your Article is where the meat of your Article is entered. Similar to the other text editors in Axis LMS, the article editor has both a Display, and an HTML View; these displays allows you to tailor different styles for your fonts, and easily insert graphics, videos, and links for your visitors to interact with.

Presenting Articles 

After writing one or more articles, you’re ready to get them out there to your visitors. This can be done from both the Account and Learning Portal Websites.

You’re able to write different articles towards different audiences. The Learning Portal, for example, is gated behind an Active User login; while your Account Website may be freely accessed without the visitor needing to login.

There are two types of widgets you’re able to add to your Websites: an "Article”, or an "Article Listing”.

The Add Article widget adds an article in-line to your page.

An Article Listing widget adds an entire category of Articles to your page, which a user may click on to take them to the full article.

When using both widgets on the same page, selecting an Article from the Article Listing widget will not bring your visitor to a new page; instead, the Article widget will update to reflect the selected article.
