Add a News Post

WordPress started off as a blogging tool. One of its core strengths is the ability to post information in a blog or news-like fashion. We have configured Faculty Websites to take the blog functionality and use it as a News feature on your website.

Create a News Post

  1. Login to your website using the Login link from Site Tools on the right sidebar of your website.
    Note: if you are already logged in this will read “Site Admin.”
  2. Expand the Posts section and click the Add New button.
    Add New Post

    Alternately, you can select Post from the New menu at the top.
    New Post from Admin Bar

  3. Type a Title in the Enter title here field.
  4. Type or copy and paste in your content in the Body field.
  5. In the Categories box, select “News
  6. In the Post Tags box, type in any tags you want associated with your News Post.
    Hint: hover over the Question marks for a description of tags, categories, etc.
  7. Click Preview to see what your news post will look like or click Publish to publish your News Post.
  8. Any additional News Posts will appear in the News section in reverse chronological order.
