Item Type: News Item

The News Item type is very much like a Page, but it is the only one that works with the News Feed portlet. Using the News Item will create a list of the latest news stories for your users. News Items are expected, but not required, to have an image associated with them.

Use It For

  • Press releases
  • Newspaper columns
  • Breaking information

Best Practices

  • The image you add to a news item will be sized and displayed automatically. It will also have a caption if you've entered that information.
  • As much as you might want to use this item just for the way the page displays, remember that these items will automatically show up in the News Portlet and other news areas in Ag CMS.
