Learn About Creating a Blog Portal

Organizations are often looking to create content-sharing portals to distribute blog content to audiences across the globe. Oracle Content Management enables you to build content-sharing websites, which will serve as central portals to share and access latest blog articles.

What is a Blog Portal?

A blog portal is a content-sharing website, which provides access to latest and greatest blog articles of an organization to its users.

Anyone can browse and view the blog articles on a blog portal (which is public). A portal that is created specifically to share only blog articles is helpful for users as the user interface will be simple and it will contain only blogs.

The blog articles that users access on a blog portal can be created and managed through a separate blog management website that can be accessed only by blog authors and blog managers of an organization. Blog authors write/edit blog articles using this blog management website and then once these blogs are ready, they are made available on the blog portal for everyone to access. The blog management website serves as a very useful solution to manage blogs and allow blog authors to contribute effectively.
