Muse Blog/CMS v.2
There is only one true Muse Blog/CMS
The Native blogging system, Muse Blog. And Muse CMS, the Content Management System for Adobe Muse.
- Fluid Styling
The revolutionary new way of styling the entire posts in Muse. The structure of the posts is customizable. Simply move, delete or add fields to create any type of dynamic posts, not just blog entries.
- Admin backend
The blog runs on your own web hosting and has a powerful independent backend system. No third-party is involved, there is no Google sheets, WordPress and such, it is simply on your own hosting.
- Muse CMS
Use CMS fields to create your pages in Muse, style them individually like any other object. Use the Blog/CMS to manage the content later without even opening Muse.
- Breakpoint-Oriented Layout / Styling
Choose to style and layout the posts separately on each breakpoint, and/or have a different number of columns.
CMS & Structure
- CMS: Dynamic loading of selected fields or images. Fully customizable, individual fields on any page of the website, content-managed centrally through the Blog/CMS.
- CMS: Variable post layout in Muse, greater styleabtlity. Customize to create any type of dynamic posts, not just blog entries.
