News Manager - User Guide

The News Manager is a powerful tool for managing news items on your website. Here's a breakdown of its main features:

Adding News Items:

At the top and bottom of the News Manager page, you'll find links to add news items. Depending on your preference, you can choose to add items at the top or bottom of the page. The order of display is typically based on the publish date of the news items.

The News Table:

The News Table provides a convenient overview of your news items:

- Headline: Shows the title of each news article and its publish date.

- Expiration: If an expiration date is set for a news item, it will be displayed in this column.

- Show: Indicates whether the news item is publicly available (Yes) or still a draft (No).

- Categories: News items can belong to multiple categories, and this column shows which categories each item is associated with.

- Functions: The Edit pencil allows you to modify a news item, while the red Delete X allows you to remove it. The Up and Down arrows allow you to reorder news items within the manager, but note that it may not affect how they appear on news view pages, as those typically follow the publish date order.

Add/Edit News Categories:

You can create and manage News Categories as needed. To get started, click on the "Add/Edit News Categories" link at the bottom of the News page. If you require specific categories to be displayed on specific pages, our support staff can assist you with configuring category-specific news pages. Please reach out to us via email for further assistance.

If you have any questions or need additional support while using the News Manager, our help desk is ready to assist you.
