To create a News story, you must log into the site:

For steps to edit an already created News story, please visit Edit a News story in the News site.

The login procedure is the same as the one described in the section titled Access.


Create News Content

Step 1 - Click Add content

To create News story content, select “Add content” from the top grey bar. The image below would help you better understand this step.

Note: If you are unable to see the “Add content” button on the page, it might be either due to access right/roles assigned which does not allow adding content or due to technical difficulties. Please contact the Site Administrator in such cases.

For sections /news and /sit – Julio Macavilca, /development – Alex Rucando, /cal and /ses – Nikhil Maheswaraiah, /sse and /howe – Jude Ken-Kwofie

Step 2 - Click News

Click on the link “News”.

Step 3 - Enter News story information

The Create 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 5 - 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 News main page.

Also check “Promoted to front page” to see the News story in the News homepage.

The publishing options may vary depending on the user roles assigned by the Admin for the News section. For any related problems, issues or help, please contact the Site Administrator.

Step 6 - Click Save

Click “Save” to save the News story.
