News

All required fields are marked with a red star.


Title is required for all content.


Department tag is required for all content. This allows the site to place the content in the correct place.


Editors will have access to uncheck School of Languages (Checked by default) and check any program for which they are allowed to create content.
If School of Languages is unchecked it will not appear on the front page news feed.
If you wish to create a content item that will appear in a feature but should not appear in the news feed: simply check Other and type 'Feature' in the box below.


A news Category must be selected. All tags in the Other Tags section are for filtering purposes. This allows people to search for news by article subject.


A photo may be uploaded. It will appear at the top of the article and accompany the title and teaser if the item is Featured. It is recommended you upload a photo if the article is intended to be a feature. Please note the file restrictions.


The body of the article goes here. You may use the box as a word processor or type up your article in MS Word beforehand then copy it in.
Leave the body set to filtered html. Editors do not have access to use full html and you may not be able to make further edits.


If you copy from word it is suggested you use the copy from Word button. This will convert Word formatting to Web formatting.


Create a link in an article by highlighting the section you wish to link, clicking the hyperlink button and pasting the url you wish to link to into the url field.

To upload a pdf photo or other media item into the description please see advanced techniques here. Editors to not have permission to embed media in the page but may still upload and link to it.


Be sure to click Edit Summary (at the top of the description field) and fill out a teaser for the article. If you do not, the system will automatically take the first line of the description and use it. The teaser may cut off in an awkward place if left blank. If you wish to have the teaser blank in the feature or feed put a single space in the Edit Summary box.


Place any source references to outside material here.


These two buttons currently do nothing and may be ignored.


Any file attachments, flyers, etc. may be attached here.
