Welcome to your b2evolution-powered website!

Welcome to your b2evolution-powered website!

To get you started, the installer has automatically created several sample collections and populated them with some sample contents. Of course, this starter structure is all yours to edit. Until you do that, though, here's what you will find on this site:

  • Blog A: You are currently looking at it. It contains a few sample posts, using simple features of b2evolution.
  • Blog B: You can access it from the link at the top of the page. It contains information about more advanced features. Note that it is deliberately using a different skin from Blog A to give you an idea of what's possible.
  • Photos: This collection is an example of how you can use b2evolution to showcase photos, with photos grouped into photo albums.
  • Forums: This collection is a discussion forum (a.k.a. bulletin board) allowing your users to discuss among themselves.
  • Manual: This showcases how b2evolution can be used to publish structured content such as an online manual or book.

You can add new collections of any type (blog, photos, forums, etc.), delete unwanted one and customize existing collections (title, sidebar, blog skin, widgets, etc.) from the admin interface.

This post has several images attached to it. Each one uses a different Attachment Position. Each may be displayed differently depending on the skin they are viewed in.

Check out the photoblog (accessible through the links at the top) to see a completely different skin focused more on the photos than on the blog text.

Child Post Example

June 22nd, 2017

This post has a special post type called "Child Post". This allowed to specify a parent post ID. Consequently, this child post is linked to: This item has no parent. (This item has no parent.).

This also allows us to access the custom fields of the parent post:

This item has no parent.

It is also possible to selectively display only a couple of these fields:

This item has no parent.

Finally, we can also display just the value of a specific field, like this: This item has no parent..
