Blog on a subdirectory, instant preview for scheduled posts, and more...

The latest update of Draftbox is here:

  1. Host your blog on a subdirectory. If you have an existing site, Draftbox can be run from a separate location, e.g. yourdomain.com/blog, known as a subdirectory (also referred to as subfolder).
  2. Instant preview support extended for scheduled posts. Now you can preview your scheduled posts—no more shooting in the dark.

Let’s dive deep into each update:

Blog on a subdirectory

If you have an existing site, you might want to run your blog from a separate location e.g. yourdomain.com/blog , also known as a subdirectory. After today’s update, you can easily set up your blog on a subdirectory (often referred to as a subfolder).

This feature is available with all the paid plans and requires custom server configurations from your side.

Visit Draftbox dashboard and open your site. You can access this feature from the side navigation under Custom Domain. Instructions are available for Nginx, Apache, Vercel, and Netlify.

✨ Interesting fact

This blog used to be at blog.draftbox.co. Now its new home is draftbox.co/blog using the latest subdirectory feature.


Instant preview support for scheduled posts

Last week we released Instant Preview feature to help you save countless hours while publishing your posts. After today’s update, you’d be able to preview scheduled posts as well.
