I have made a new "section" called Blog. In the dashboard I now have a quick post panel but I can only input a title and nothing else? How can I add the ability to have a body etc?
You've probably gone through the process of creating a new Section, but have not assigned any fields to it.
In Craft, the differences between each of your Sections and Entry Types comes in the various fields you assign to them.
The typical content structure definition process looks something like:
- Create a Section and at least one Entry Type
- Create a Field Group
- Add Fields to the Field Group
- Add the Field Group or individual Fields to your Entry Type(s)
- Add or Edit your content by creating or modifying an Entry.
In your case, you've probably done step 1 and step 5. Try adding some fields (like "Body" or "Tags") and assigning them to your Entry Type.
