More pages and more content helps you to rank better in search engines, helps to give visitors more to read and makes your site a lot more interesting!
Pages in Journo Portfolio are made up of 'Blocks' which you can add, delete and re-order. Each block displays differently on your page, for example you can have a block to show a featured article, an 'about me' block or a contact form.
Adding an article by URL is as simple as entering the URL and clicking add, we'll take care of grabbing the title, publication, date, content and an image.
If your articles are in an offline format such as print you can easily upload a PDF or image instead of adding an article from a URL.
Not only can you add links to articles published elsewhere but you can also directly write and publish articles on your Journo Portfolio.
Making use of 'Publish Directly' feature and a new page allows you to create a blog where you can publish content that doesn't make it on to other websites or into print.

You can automatically backup your URL-based articles to protect them from being lost if the publishing website shuts down or removes content. Backups are generated in PDF and image format so you never lose the text or what that article looked like.
