Many computer users use popular blogging platforms to blog about various topics. These platforms often offer a wide variety of features to meet the needs of their users. But normally these features are best taken advantage of by people who know how to code in HTML and CSS. For instance, custom themes in Blogger can only be created by people who know how to code; and if we consider WordPress, then you need a paid account to start with any beneficial customizations. But even if these problems were overcome, one would still not be able to use these blogs for client interactions because for that, a specific set of special features is required such as collaboration with other users.
The gap left by other blogging platforms is bridged by a site called “Papyrs” – a tool to easily create new webpages for any use you want.
Papyrs is a wonderful web service that lets you create webpages. Using the site you can obtain a domain name as a subdomain of the site and start adding webpages to it. Your webpages are completely customizable. These customizations do not rely on your programming skills – you simply drag webpage elements into the position you want and edit them. Pictures, text boxes, etc. all can be easily added to your webpages. Additionally you can invite collaborators to work on your site and add elements to get user inputs. This facilitates group work and client interactions.
Your first step in using Papyrs is creating an account. In this step all you have to do is type in your email address, select a password, and type in your desired subdomain.
With your account setup and activated, you can log into your Papyrs interface. At first, you will see a welcome screen providing you with some sample pages for guidance and inspiration.
You can start adding your own pages using the “New Page” button in the top right of the screen.
When you create a new page you can type in a name for it, set its privacy level – either public or private – and optionally add collaborators as maintainers for the page.
When your page is created, you are taken to its URL. You might not be satisfied with the default design; to start modifying your webpage, click on the “Edit Page” option in the “Page” menu next to the New Page button.
You will be shown a guiding window that explains the element dragging feature.
You can close this window and start dragging various elements from the top row into your main page area. This “elements row” includes picture boxes, user inputs, discussion boxes, and a lot more. You can drag the element anywhere – to a blank space or on a previous element to make room for the new element.
Existing elements on the page can be modified anytime you want. Texts, for instance, can be changed; you can add special formatting, modify font style and size, and add hyperlinks to the text boxes added to your page.
In the right pane of the page, a gray area is reserved for special type of posts. To modify the type of posts or elements are shown here, simply click on the “Edit” link in the top right of this gray area.
A window will appear that lets you select the type of elements to show in this gray area. You will be able to select recent comments, favorite posts, recent changes, and recent form submissions to appear in this area.
To modify the colors on your page, you can simply access the Themes section under your account’s Settings options and set the webpage element colors according to your preferences.
If at any time you would like to invite members to your webpage, simply do so through the People tab under Settings.
All these options work together to give you a completely functional webpage that can be used for anything your desire.
As shown above, Papyrs has a lot to offer its users. Whether you want to run a small personal blog or a free company blog to interact with your clients in a simple way, Papyrs will serve your excellently. With color customization and collaboration features, Papyrs offers more than other blogging platforms offer for free. You should definitely check it out if you are thinking about starting a new blog.
