Feed Descriptions and Usage

The following feeds will pull collections of stories selected by the communications team into various modules throughout the website. Some of these collections will also be available as filters on the News page. All feeds will display stories from newest to oldest, according to pub date.

General News Feeds

All News
The communications team should select this feed for all articles. It will include all news stories approved by the team to be in the news area of the website, including Hunter Headlines (original content created by the communications team), Hunter in the News (stories that link to Hunter-related content in a third party source or Hunter institution, such as Roosevelt House), and articles that include downloads to important documents and studies.

Hunter Headlines (HH)
Original full-length news articles created or approved by the communications team.

Hunter in the News (HITN)
Stories that promote Hunter-related content in a third party source. Original titles and blurbs will be written by the communications team and built in WP with a download button or link to the original third-party source.

Select stories that represent Hunter’s “greatest hits.” Spotlight articles can include both HH and HITN stories.

Audience Feeds

The communications team should select at least 1 audience for every article, and up to 5, depending on who is featured in the story and who would be most interested in reading it. Audience feeds include:
