Adding an announcement or news item

Related Content vs. Syndicated Content

Related content: gives you more flexibility to choose what appears in the news section, but requires that you update the news section each time you want to add a new story.

Syndicated content: is automated — you will not have to update the news section each time you add a story. However, you can only show the five (or whatever number you choose) most recent items.

 

To make an addition to an announcement feed such as this one:

Gui2de Featured Stories

 

First, you must determine if your announcements section is Syndicated Content, Related Content, or a Tag Based List. To do so:

  • Go to the page where your announcements feed is located (most likely your home page). Click New Draft.

  • If the content is in the center rail of the page, look under Main Content Area. If it is on the left or right side of the page, look under Additional Content Areas.

    • Your announcements feed will live in one of these sections:

If your Announcements content is Syndicated Content:

Please follow the directions in the creating content section on the Tag Based List page.

 

If your Announcements content is Related Content:

Please follow the directions on the Main Related Content page or the Right Related Content page.
