News

The News content type is used to display news articles on your website. The News content type is only available in the Content Below Main section of the website. If you want to display news in the Main Content area, use the List (News/Publications) content type.

(See a sample of the News content type at the bottom of this page.)

  1. Navigate to your page and click Edit. Scroll down until you see the Add Content Below Main checkbox and check it.

Check the Add Content Below Main checkbox

  1. Select the radio button for News. For Background Color, leave as beige unless you have multiple Content Below Main modules, in which case you would want to alternate colors for contrast (you can edit this later).

There are two methods you can use to add a list: manual entry and BrandeisNOW. For both, you can enter a Heading (optional), which creates large text centered at the top of the news section. Suggestions: “Recent News”.

Manual Entry

Fields for manual entry of news item

You must add two news items in order to use the Manual Entry method. For each event you will need to add:

You can add another news item using the green plus ( + ) sign. You can also reorder items using the up/down arrows.

After you have added each event, on the bottom of the editor, you can add Button Text and a link. This could be useful to link to a larger news page.

Brandeis Now

The BrandeisNOW option allows you to include news from BrandeisNOW on your website.

Fields for entry of BrandeisNOW News feed

  1. Category: Select the news category you wish to display. Four articles from the category you choose will be displayed.
  2. Button Text: Include a button if you want to link to another page.
  3. Link Type: Select the Internal or External radio button. Use Internal for any page within your site that you have access to in the CMS. External is used for a link on any other website (including Brandeis sites you do not have access to, such as BrandeisNOW). The link will only display if you include Button Text.
  4. Browse or Search for your internal page or type in your external URL (include http://).
