News index

The News index Content type is an automatically-populated list of all the published news stories created within your Group.

News Index page

Example

Latest web support news

When?

Use this Content type if you regularly publish news and want to show site visitors an overview of the latest stories. Each teaser takes a user through to the full story.

Why?

The list is updated automatically when a new story is published, making your latest news visible and easy for site visitors to find. It also saves you from having to manually update the News index.

How?

If you wish to have a news section on your site, this will be added as part of the migration process. If you require a news section to an already-migrated site please get in touch to request this.

Your News index should be placed at yoursitename/news in the site structure.

The admin page for creating a News Index page

When creating a page, choose the News index Content type and complete the Title and Intro text fields. After saving, your published news stories will be automatically pulled into the index.

On the roadmap

Future developments for this content type include functionality for displaying news indexes for multiple Groups/sites, highlighting key stories and adding news summaries on home pages
