Creating a blog page.

Hi it is my first time creating a blog page. Is there a tutorial or something similar or guidance that can help me in doing this. I have already seen that I can do it with Dataasist but not sure how.

Thank you for your help.

Use Power CMS Templates for this.

See this tutorial:

Jason.

I did the whole tutorial up to "Create your results page" and up to point nr5 "Within the Template for Site list, select the template you are using for your site's design."

Then in Dreamweaver where I have to choose the template it doesn't give me the option of the template that I created although it is created in PowerCMS?

What I want to create is something where the client can post a message everyday with a photo and date that shows. The page that the posts goes onto must only take 30 posts. Once 30 is reached the oldest post is kicked out.

Thank you.

Set the results recordset to order by the date created column and use LIMIT 30 to return only 30 results

Jason in the PowerCMS i've set up the template for the blog posts. In the template there is a 'Date' content area. What I want is that the client don't have to go to manually insert the date every time they post on the blog. What solution is there for this hurdle?

Thank you.

There is no reson to have a date created content area, the date created is already being stored on the ContentDate column, just use that column to display the date created.
