Manage News ( Works with E-Newsletter Extra)
The Manage News' option in the Site Tools menu, is a special content area that allows you to separate up-to the minute content from the 'foundation' (content that doesn't change very often) content of your site. This allows you to add quick news update to your site without fit it into the existing structure of your site.
We will customise the options for your school into categories such as Sports News, Art News, School News, Site News etc.
News articles can be as feature rich as regular content and include images, image galleries, embedded videos and links pdf files.
Using this feature also lets you to use our E-Newsletter Extra, that allows you to email newsletters using your existing news content, so you don't need repeat effort. See our E-Newsletters Extra help page.
Managing and Creating News Articles
Managing and creating news articles is very similar to regular content, only all content is organised into one section ('News').
When you click 'Manage News' from the main menu, you will see a list of all of the existing articles. This view works exactly the same as the main 'Site Content'.
Creating a New Article
To create a new article click the 'Create News Article' button.
Hiding an Article
To hide an article from your website, you must first set its status to 'Draft/ Hidden'. Setting an article to 'Draft/Hidden ' removes it from view of site users (effectively turns it 'off'). Make sure you save this change.
