Why Posts?

The posts plugin for October CMS is a self contained publishing platform suitable for all users. Whether you run a single author blog or a multi-national publishing outlet, Posts will work for you.

Posts implements the key features required of modern publishing software and packages them into a user friendly tool that is simple to understand.

Key Features at a Glance

Posts has many valuable features which are detailed here in the form of posts, but here are are a few of the most important.


Posts generates all of the important meta tags for your pages along with opengraph data.

A JSON representation of your post is also generated which enables Google rich snippets for your content.

Automatic Redirects

Posts tracks changes to your category structure and post slugs (URL identifiers) so when changes are made, your links update so you'll never have a dead link. Recategorize and rename your posts at will, everything will still work.

Many Images

Specify separate images for post lists, banners and social media sharing. 

You can even choose different images depending on the visitors screen size so you can make your posts look just right with ease.

Access Control

Administrators can define over 20 separate permissions over and above the standard permissions provided by October CMS for authors and editors, so you can have confidence that any user you allow to access your admin area can do their job without being able to access unauthorized areas and features.

Multi-Format Body

Posts, categories and tags are all content objects which contain a body. A body can be constructed using separate blocks or you can choose to use a simple WYSIWYG or markdown editor.

Whatever you choose, it's really easy to quickly create your content.


Expanding on the translation capabilities of October CMS, posts, categories and tags are all fully translatable. 

You can also define a primary locale for each post so region-specific content is only available where it is relevant.
