Edit a News story in the News site

Step 1 - Choose a News story to Edit

To edit previously created News stories, click on “News Content” at the top grey bar to search for the News story. The below image shows the following steps to search for and edit News story.

  1. Enter the News story title in the text box titled Title Contains.
  2. Click Apply to see the search results in the table.
  3. Choose Edit at the right most column of the News story row in the table to edit the News story.

The above steps show the minimum number of fields required to search for News story. Other fields such as Body contains, Admin Unit, Date would help to make the search more specific.

Step 2 - Enter News story information

The Edit News page is displayed. Some of the fields to be entered are described in the figure below. Fields marked with an asterisk are compulsory.

Body: The Body constitutes the main content that needs to be displayed in the page. Major content of the page is placed in this section. For more information, please see the Body heading under Create a Page section.

Step 4 - Select Administration Unit

For the “Administration Unit” select list, choose the units for which the News story belongs. You can select multiple administration units by: on Mac - Press and hold the Command key/ on Windows the Ctrl key. For e.g., for a Graduate News story, the administration unit “-Graduate” under SIT could be chosen. The dashes before the section names represent the hierarchy with the parent section/administration unit. -- (double) denotes a child of the Administration Unit with a - (single) dash. This helps in better content management, access control and associating content to their respective units.

Step 4 - Choose Moderation State

Under the “Publishing options” tab at the bottom left of the page, choose the “Moderation state” for the News story.

Choose one of the following:

  1. Current: Draft: When the News story is not completely edited and needs to be edited later.
  2. Needs Review: When the News story is completed but requires moderation before posting it on the News story page.
  3. Published: When the News story is completed and is ready to be published on the main News page.
