Install your Odoo 16 Website Module Application and open the application.


We can start creating a new blog in two ways such as,

1. Using the “+New” button.


Clicking on the “+New” button will open a page where we can select the various editing options to create Blog posts, Appointment forms, Products, Pages, Job positions, etc., as shown in the below screenshot.


2. Using the “Blog Posts” option from the “Site” menu.

In this blog, we are going to see the creation of a new blog post through the “Site” menu.


After opening the “Blog Posts” menu, we can see the homepage as shown below.


The dashboard view of newly created blogs is displayed in a list format with the following columns: Title, Website URL, Author, Published, and Website name.

Clicking on the appropriate field will take us to the blog.

To start a new blog post, click the "New" button located under the Blog Post Pages. That will open a small popup window in which we can provide the blog type and title, as shown in the below screenshot.


Once the process is finished, save the information. The blog post page will then open, allowing us to create the blog post by adding text, a web page banner, and themes using the extensive collection of Odoo editing tools the platform offers.


Selecting Building Blocks

Users can choose the website's building blocks based on their preferences and creativity. Odoo offers a variety of building blocks that make it easier to build more appealing web pages. As seen in the screenshot below, the "BLOCK" section of the toolbox is where we can choose the block designs.

After selecting the text area, users can edit their blog text on the webpage itself using the various editing tools by clicking on the “Edit” button from the main menu.


Using the “CUSTOMIZE” button, we can customize the text style, font size, bold, italics, font size, and so on. Also, we can set up the text layout, sidebars, and other options.


Adding and Replacing Images/Media

Users can simply add or replace their website media as images, videos, and illustrations using the “Replace” button provides in the editing toolbox.


We can add images directly from the system storage or upload media from the Odoo platform using the application named “Unsplash.”

Unsplash is an online media downloading platform that provides millions of royalty-free media from around the world. After clicking on the “Replace” button, it will direct you to a page, as shown in the below screenshot.


Users can upload images from their storage using the “ Upload an Image” button, add the URL of the particular media or upload from the Unsplash platform by typing the media keyword on the search field as shown in the above screenshot.

In this scenario, I am creating a demonstrational blog with simple features by providing a simple heading, editing texts with webpage background images, and adding a quotation building block at the bottom of the blog. Then replacing the images using Unsplash, as shown in the screenshots.


After completing the editing process, you can save the changes using the “SAVE” button from the editing toolbox.
