News Feed Callout


The Callout – News Feed is used to pull in a list of articles assigned to one or more particular Tags. The list is capped at three (3) articles, includes the three most recent articles that match the Tags, and is positioned in the left column of the content page in which it is used. See the Article Page Content Sharing Reference document for detailed information on what fields from the Article page are used in the article list generated by the Callout – News Feed.

Content Entry Fields

Title

This field holds the title for the News Feed. The Title is not displayed on the public website. It is used to identify the News Feed within the CMS. Make sure to provide a clear, descriptive title as you will use this title when selecting the News Feed to pull it into site pages. You may wish to preface the title with text to identify your department or office, for example Chem Eng – Undergraduate Research News.

General Tags and Research Strengths Tags

The Tags and Research Strengths fields specify the tags to which articles must be assigned to be pulled into the News Feed. Selection of multiple tags is supported.

IMPORTANT: If multiple tags are selected, an article needs to be assigned to at least one of the tags in each section to be pulled in. This means that as the number of selected tags increases, the number of news releases that could be pulled in will most likely decrease.

The three most recent articles are pulled in.

The Heading and the articles list is enclosed in an orange border with an icon positioned above it. The All News Link link appears in a blue box below the last item in the list.
