News articles will appear in the order they are posted, with the most recent articles at the top. The most recent news article will automatically have a bigger featured design.

Create a news article

By default, the list of news articles lives under the 'News' link in the main menu. You can also access all news articles under Site Settings.

  • Title: A title is required.
  • Alternate URL: If the article exists as a page on a different website, you can use the Alternate URL to link there instead of duplicating the content on your website. With an alternate URL in place, clicking the title of this article will take visitors to the external website.
  • Body: Create the main content of your article as you would a normal page.
  • Summary: By default the first few sentences of the body will be used when the article is displayed on the news page. Use summary to define your own short description if you wish.
  • Thumbnail Image: This small image will appear when your article is displayed in the news page. Use the alternate text to briefly describe the image for screenreader users.
  • Publishing options: You can publish or unpublish an article, and modify the publication date.

Editing and deleting news articles

There are two ways to edit existing news articles.

  1. Find the article in the News page and click the edit button to the right of the news article.
  2. Go to Site Settings, then Manage News.
