TESTING Technology is the Way to Go

When creating an article in the system you should always click the section of that article (for example "News"), and then click the sub tab called Article. This will allow the articles to have the correct URL string (, and Breadcrumb links on the article pages. Another benefit of creating the article in the correct section is that the article will automatically populate into that section's RSS feed. You can monitor which articles will appear in a section's RSS feed under Articles > Local Content tab of each section.

Once you click the Create in the article tab, you will pull up the Add Article Page, where you will place your content. At the top of the Add Article Page you can select to save the article as a draft, which will keep the article from appearing on the site until someone on your staff publishes it. Below that you have fields where you can fill in the Title, Subtitle, Byline, Second byline, edit the creation date, specify an article Summary, and then add your article text.

When adding the Summary or Body Text you have an editing tool bar. You can use this tool bar to change the layout and styles of the text. You have the option to add in links, anchor tags, lists, and tables for staff members who do not know HTML.

Directly below the "Body Text" box you can select to make this article Breaking News. A Breaking News article has two main differences from a standard article. 1. The Breaking News article will be given a different visual treatment when placed in a Teaser element. 2. When you save the Breaking News article you will be given the option to send out a special Breaking News e-mail to your subscribers.
