Brand new to Webflow, and I have zero code knowledge. I purchased the Oliver template for my site which was categorized as a “CMS” template. Now that I’m using the template I don’t see any pages or sections that would work for a blog. I’ve learned that I can’t copy elements from say a blog template and paste them into my Oliver template. I’ve decided to start building a separate site with a blog template and link to it from the original site. Here’s my issue… I have no idea how to maintain domain consistency.
Example: Site 1 sits on the original domain. Let’s call it “mydomain.com”. I’d prefer that the new blog site be located at “blog.mydomain.com” or “mydomain.com/blog”. Is it possible to pull that off? In my nav bar on “mydomain.com” I’d want a link called “Blog” and that would click through to the other site “blog.mydomain.com”. From a UX perspective, you wouldn’t know it wasn’t a continuous site.
In my settings page on the new blog site, I’ve tried adding “blog.mydomain.com” but when I hit “check status” it says I have to update the DNS settings.
Any thoughts on what I’m doing wrong?
Thanks in advance!
