We’ve developed a web application we call the Pronto Blog Engine. Basically, it organizes posts from our master blogs, like TechAdvisory.org for example, and prepares them to be fetched by our client’s blogs.
In the Blog Engine, we can group post versions (we create multiple versions of each post with different titles, intro content and image for differentiation), and set the article’s topic, region, and some other internal settings. Your website has a Preferences Center where you can customize the type of content that flows to your blog.
Updating your subscription preferences
To access your subscriptions, navigate Dashboard > My Subscriptions once logged into your WordPress website.
Topics are grouped with others in the same general area. After you choose the topics you wish to subscribe to and save the settings, your blog will be updated with the last 30 posts that match your preferences.
Some articles we create are specific to only one area, such as US tax laws. Selecting the regions you whish to subscribe to allows you to only get the content relevant to your area.
Note: Over 90% of the articles we publish are Non Region Specific. Make sure you select this in addition to the other regions you wish you subscribe to.
You have the option for new posts be immediately published on your blog publicly, or for all posts first be saved as a draft.
If you choose the Save as draft option, you will need to log into your account to review and manually publish all new blog posts.
Mapping Topics to Categories
By default, your WordPress blog will use all incoming topics as categories. For example, if you subscribe to the topic Android Phone, any blog post that comes in associated with that topic will be categorized in WordPress as Android Phone. For a number of reasons, you may want these to be different.
Just under the My Subscriptions link you’ll find Category Mapping. On this page you can manually enter the category you wish each topic to map to. Multiple topics can be mapped to a single category.
Categories you map to must exist. You can create and edit categories by going to Posts > Categories.
If you wish to update the categories of any of your existing blog posts, you’ll need to update them in the Posts section. If you need any help with this or would like us to do this for you just let us know and we’ll be happy to help.
