News Centre: Managing News Articles (v2.8+)

News Articles can be posted to the News Centre as a way to communicate long-form information such as weekly school happenings, notable student achievements and recent sporting or arts events. In this sense, they provide a digital newsletter on your site that is easily published to any subscriber via the web or RSS.

  2. In the subsequent window, enter a Title for the article and then type the article body text in the Description field provided.


  3. Once you have finished composing your article, choose the News Centre Section you wish to publish the article under.

  4. Finally, should you wish to add an image to the article to make it a little more interesting to readers, click the Choose File button towards the right and select the image to upload. You can also specify a caption for the image in the text field below.

  5. Once you have made the necessary edits, click the Create button to save and publish your article.
