?UNIQf52228204c85cdcb-item-1--QINU? Ingrid Blogs is a very strong feature of Zcubes that facilitates the user to express/share different views and ideas with the outer world. Blogs can be private or public related to any topic. A blog by default is 'Public' and all live public blogs can be viewed in Tiled or Listed format.

Blogs can be created under different categories depending on the topic. HTML editor helps the user to set or modify the display format of the blog contents. While editing, the incomplete blog can be saved as a draft through 'Save as Draft' button. It allows the user to upload images, videos, URL's, experiences, any document attachments etc. along with the text content in a blog. New blogs with the related topics can be added under a same blog heading through 'Create new blog posting' option.

The first image or the video uploaded in the blog post is the default thumbnail image of the blog post.
