Content Promoter for News
With News Blogger you can create news articles, share a searchable list of articles with an image and description on a designated news page, add a news feed to a homepage, link to articles from outside sources, and even create a news page that pulls in articles from other OU Campus sites that match your choice of tags.
There are three article types:
- Standard--comes with a picture you can easily replace
- Image Gallery--comes prebuilt with a place to include an image gallery
- Video--comes with a video embedded that you can replace with your own video content
You can choose to feature articles at the top of your main news landing page in three ways: (1) one main featured article, (2) three featured articles, or (3) both a main and three featured articles.
Each article, except for those pulled in from an external source, also come with a built-in .pdf version of the article that website visitors can download or share. Content creators choose whether to have a 1, 2 or 3 column layout for the .pdf file.
Homepage News Feed
You also have the option of creating a news feed, pulled from your OU Campus website or another USU OU Campus website, for your homepage with a set number of the most recent articles that match your tag choices. You can choose from a variety of news feed layout options including 1-column, 2-column, 3-column, headline and magazine.
