News and Blogs

This just in…read all about it.

It’s easy to inform the public and your members of news, announcements, and stir their thinking with insightful blog posts.

The public can subscribe to your news via an RSS feed to view your posts off-site and be automatically notified when new content is added. Alternatively, you can post member-only announcements only your membership can see. Set an optional expiration date for news posts and have them automatically removed.

You can elect to automatically email members when announcements are posted to your site. In addition, member news posts are included in the optional weekly recap email, sent to members each week. Use news posts in conjunction with Congregate’s daily recap email – post news for longer, on-site display and post a daily announcement for same-day updates that do not need to remain on-site.

Start a discussion and get them talking.

The public can view posts on your website or subscribe to your blog via an RSS feed to view your posts off-site and be automatically notified when new content is added. You can elect to automatically email members when blog entries are posted to your site. Post member-only entries only your membership can view and/or comment on to keep the discussion “in house” if you prefer.

Congregate offers full control over commenting and moderation. Blogs also feature unlimited topics, authors, tags, blacklisted users/words/IP addresses/etc. (for content control/filtering), and many other features for maximum customization.
