How slscart blogging works from a reader's perspective
The slscart blog is a simple way to convey pertinent information to customers. Since the blog is directly part of the store's domain, it provides link juice to the store. Also, the comment feature allows valuable feedback from readers.
Only the store administrator or one of the staff can post a blog entry.
Blog entries are listed in descending order, according to the time they were posted (i.e. newest one first).
Clicking on a blog entry will display the contents and its category (if one exists), and if enabled, comments.
The blog is set up (by the website administrator) to require an account before leaving a comment or set up so anyone can leave a comment by filling out a form or allow no comments at all. The menus (logged in, not logged in) only appear if one must have an account to comment.
Comments are enumerated chronologically with oldest one being first.
Must have an account
A person can leave a comment if they have an account established. This is done primarily to reduce spam postings.
A menu is presented if you are not logged in:
Login | Forgot Password | New Account
If logged in the following menu appears:
Logout | Edit Account | Change Password
No account necessary
The commenter needs to enter name, valid email address, and a comment. The comment is put into pending and activated upon review.
Login - person logs in after creating an account. User name and password required.
Logout - log out of your account
Forgot Password - if you forgot your password, fill in user name and email address associated with your account and instructions will be sent to it.
New Account - fill out the form to create a new account.
Edit Account - allows one to change account fields. First name, last name, email address, time zone, screen name
Change Password - change the password on your account
Categories, if any, are listed alphabetically across the page. Click on a category and only the blog entries for that category will be displayed.
This is an optional feature.
