How to configure the news menu filters

 


News Landing Carousel

A carousel (#2) displays a collection of the most recent stories within a feed/filter. If an article does not have an associated image, the article will not display here. This is an automated feed.

How to edit what content goes into the carousel

 


News Landing Main Content

All news articles are displayed (#3) in the grid except for those that already appear in the carousel at the top. The grid shows 20 articles with buttons at the bottom to display ‘More Articles' or to 'Back to Top'.

News article modules display:

      • Photos - if the article has an associated photo
      • Article publish date
      • Article title
      • Article blurb - There is a separate field in the WordPress CMS for the blurb. If the field is left blank, the first 150 characters of the article will display with an ellipse.
      • Articles that have associated documents, or link to outside websites, will be displayed with a larger call to action link and arrow at the bottom of the module.

Right Column

The News landing right column (#4) is managed in News / News Options and can only be edited by Site Editors.
