    Invision Community - building a blog from scratch

    Jimi Wikman

    This is a guide series that will go through everything you need to know to set up and customize your own blog using Invision Community from Invision Power Services. This guide will be updated with new articles or new information when new releases are made that affect the guides.

    This guide contains the following articles:

    1. Introduction (this page)
    2. Databases & Custom fields
    3. Adding Databases to Pages
    4. Adding CSS and JS to Pages
    5. Article View Template design
    6. Article Listing Template Design
    7. Article Category Listing Template Design
    8. Article Form Design
    9. Article Block Design
    10. Database Relationships

    This guide should give you all the information you need to get a good start with creating your own designs with Invision Community and its Pages application. If you want a quick start however and get a great looking design up and running in 10 minutes, then you can purchase a license for Invision Community and buy the plugin Pages SuperGrid by opentype.

    For this guide you will need a license for Pages, which is the application that allow you to work with Pages and Databases. I will make references to the Forum application as well, but you do not need that if you do not want to. The information in the articles will not go deep into how to make your blog compatible by using standard classes as that is a pretty big topic and I usually just build for myself, so I do not have to worry too much about that.

    If you have any questions or see a topic not yet added here, please drop by the forum and let me know.
