Step 2: Fill Out the News Element

News element tabs

News Tab

The news tab contains the basic news fields:

  1. Title: The title of your news item.
  2. Tagline: Something to grab the reader's attention, usually one sentence.
  3. Content: Your news article. Since this is a formatted text area, you can format the text, insert images, add links, etc.
  4. Element Type: What kind of news item is this? Select Press Release, Announcement, or Newsgram
  5. Contact: Used for press releases. Select a Profile page to have the person's contact info show up.

Includes Tab

The includes tab gives you options for attaching media & document pages.

  1. Image: This should be a 260px wide image. It will display in the article itself, and as a thumbnail if the article is featured on the home page.
  2. Media Gallery: If you have created a Media Gallery (video/audio) page, you can link to it here.
  3. Photo Gallery: If you have created a Photo Gallery page, you can link to it here.
  4. Associated Document: If there is a specific document page you would like to link to, you can do it here.

Note that since the Content field is a Formatted Text Block element, you can insert links & embed images there as well. The above options just add formatting to the links.

Landing Page Requests Tab

By default your news items will show up on your department's news page as soon as they are published, and Newsgram pages will show up under your department in the Newsgram folder.

To keep our site current and interesting, we recommend that you request to have your news items be featured where applicable.

  1. Request to display on newsgram home page: If you would like your article to be featured on the Newsgram home page, check this box.

Remember that all the above requests will be reviewed by a designated approver before appearing.

Newsgram Articles

All Newsgram articles will be reviewed & edited by the Newsgram Approver. Only Newsgram articles for the current month will show up.
