News items can be added by a site admin or site content manager from your specific news page or via any Recent News portlet via the “Add New” button ().
WE RECOMMEND THAT YOU ADD NEWS ITEMS VIA THE SPECIFIC NEWS PAGE AS IF YOU ADD VIA A PORTLET IT WILL REQUIRE AN EXTRA STEP AND SETTING THE “DISPLAY PAGE” FOR THE ITEM. THE DEFAULT NEWS PAGE ADDS THIS AUTOMATICALLY.
To Add a News Item log into your website and navigate to your news page or a page that has a Recent News portlet and click the “Add New” button. This will open a button labeled “Basic Web Content”. You will then click on that secondary button.
This will open up the “New Web Content” page:
The steps to publishing the news item are as follows:
1 – Check the box for “Autogenerate ID”.
2 – Enter your News Item Name in the “Title” field. This will be the link that is displayed on the portlet and News Page.
3 – Enter any content into the WYSIWYG Editor.
4 – A “News” tag will be entered automatically when you first create the item but you can double check by clicking on the “Categorizations” link and check the “Tags” section. If it is missing you can simply type “news” and press enter or search/select it.
5 – You can also edit the “Abstract”, “Schedule”, and “Related Assets” for the News item like any other Web Content.
6 – Next you will need to set the “Display Page” for the Web Content to be your main News page. THIS IS ONLY NECESSARY WHEN CREATING NEWS ITEMS VIA RECENT NEWS PORTLETS. Click on “Display Page” in the links. Then click on the “Select” button and this will open the “Choose a Display Page” window. You will just navigate through your site hierarchy to locate your main news page and click on it and click “OK”.
Once you click “OK” you will see the Display Page set similar to the following:
7 - Once you're satisfied with your item, select Publish. This will add the new “news” item to your website. And when you click on the item from a “Recent News” portlet you will be taken directly to the item.
