Adding a News Article

1. Select Add News from the News menu

article. (Note: if you have just 1 category in a subsite, you will bypass this step).

3. Click Next to continue

4. Enter the Details of the article:


5. The News Title is the heading for the article

The News Title URL Link checkbox, if selected, will create the News Title as a direct link to your chosen URL,
rather than writing a News Body. Select the checkbox and add the required URL to the pop-up

The News Summary is displayed beneath the title, if the category has summaries enabled, this summary
will be visible when the article is displayed in a list on the intranet

The Displayed Date is the date that is displayed on the article

Select Publish Date if you want the news to appear on the intranet after a certain date / time. Select the
appropriate date from the drop down (eg. a weekly News article may be produced, the article can be created
at any time but will only be displayed on the intranet according to
date / time that is entered)

Select Expiry Date if you would like to select a date / time for the article to expire and be removed from
the intranet

Upload a Thumbnail: if you do not upload a thumbnail, the category's default thumbnail will be displayed
(Note: the thumbnail will only be displayed with the News article on the intranet if thumbnails have been
enabled for the selected category. The recommended size for a thumbnail is 71 x 50 pixels)

By default, News articles are displayed in date order, with the most recent article at the top. To modify the
Priority of an article, select from the drop down list (Note: 1 = top rank)

The Approve checkbox is selected by default, making the article available on the intranet immediately.
If deselected, the article then needs to be approved by an administrator
