# How to connect a module to a website

In the previous tutorial, you learned how to install a blog module in your CMS and create a repeater and detail template. In this tutorial, you will now learn how to connect your detail page to the blog module, so you can begin adding content to it and dynamically generating posts.

# Prerequisites

# How to add a detail template

The detail template shows the specifics of an individual entry from a repeater template. An example would be clicking on an individual blog entry from a list of entries to see the entire blog post. The detail page is a subpage of its parent page on the repeater template.

Step 1: Under the blog folder in web files > content add a file for the module detail called detail.tpl.

Step 2: Add the code below for the blog detail, and click Publish. This code contains shortcodes to show your blog content, for more information on shortcodes, please click here.


  <div class="d-flex align-items-center justify-content-between">
    <p class="mb-0 mt-3">
      <span class="text-primary"><strong>[is_set value={{post_author}}]By David Smith[/is_set]</strong> [is_set value={{post_author}}]</span>
      <span class="ps-2">[/is_set][print_date format="F d, Y" timestamp="{{start_time}}"][is_set value={{post_author}}]</span>[/is_set]
    <ul class="list-unstyled d-flex justify-content-end mb-0">
      <li><a href="" class="text-dark text-decoration-none"><span class="fa-fw fa-brands me-2 fa-twitter"></span><span class="sr-only">Twitter</span></a></li>

      <li><a href="" class="text-dark text-decoration-none"><span class="fa-fw fa-regular fa-envelope"></span><span class="sr-only">Email</span></a></li>

    [is_empty value={{post_image_alt}}]
