News stories appear

Examples

To create a news story with this method

With all of the following:

  • One or more pages listing all news stories

  • Each news story has its own page

  • Recent news stories automatically listed on the home page

  1. Select Content > Add Content > News from the dark gray menu bar at the top of the page, then complete the form that appears.

    Do not set a domain-specific path.

  2. Save your page as draft, then review and edit as needed.

  3. When ready, select the Apply button to set the moderation state to Published.

  4. If a menu item to News is not already included in your site’s primary navigation, let us know at Website Support, and we’ll add it for you.

  • On one page combined with events

Create a new page or edit an existing events page, then add your news and events info.

  • On one page combined with media coverage

Create a new page or edit an existing media coverage page, then add your news and media coverage info.

  • On one page just for news

Create a new page, then add your news info.

You can model your news stories on one of these or create your own or ask for help at Website Support.

Optional: You can create different news categories by using keywords

This applies only to sites on pharm.ucsf.edu. Should you desire different categories of news stories, consistently specify keywords in the Keywords field of each news story. After saving the page as draft or after publishing the news story, a new Keywords section appears at the bottom of each news story with a link to each category listing. For examples, see the bottom of the pages at Tips About Spider Bites and Teens and Alcohol. To add menu items for news categories to your site, let us know at Website Support, and we’ll add them for you.
