  3. Fill in the information on the following page: Title (required field), Published Date (note format of three letter month, followed by day without comma and year), By Line (if appropriate) and Body Copy
  4. Scroll down and see if your site uses “News Tags” or “Tags.” If so, click the appropriate tags to categorize your news item (You may select more than one)
  5. If possible, you should also upload a photo for your news item so it will display on your “News” page
    1. Click “Choose File” under “Image” and locate the photo you want to use on your computer
    2. After you find it and double click it (the name will appear in the field beside “Choose File”, click the upload button
    3. You will then see a small version of your photo under “Image” and a larger version of the photo beneath the “Focus rectangle” and “Crop rectangle” boxes
    4. Click on this larger photo and you can manipulate the highlight block to select the portion of the photo you want displayed on your News page. (Note, the full photo will appear when your user opens the individual news item.)
  6. Click “Save” at the bottom of the page

Your News item will now appear where your other News appears on your website — such as your “News” menu link, Latest News block on Home Page, and possibly locations within the site where News (based on the “tags”) appears.
