Displaying News or Newsletters on a Page

After creating a News Feed and adding News or Newsletter posts to the feed, it is ready to be placed on a page. There are three types of News Feed blocks that can be used on pages:

  • News Feed - The 'regular' News Feed block displays all news posts from the selected news feed(s). This type of feed provides pagination for a visitor to access all the posts assigned to the selected news feed(s) and an optional 'archived link'. The News Feed is primarily placed on a full-width inside page.
  • News Headlines - The News Headlines block displays posts from the selected feed(s) that are set to 'Display in News Headlines'. News Headlines allows a user to set the # of posts to display in the feed and can provide a link for a visitor to click to get to a page with the full News Feed displayed. News Headlines are primarily used on district or building home pages.
  • Newsletters - The Newsletters block displays selected newsletter-type feeds as a list of links.
