Only news posts will appear in Highlighted News. Although it’s possible to add regular web pages to the Highlighted News collection, they will not appear on your News page.
Have you seen a news post on another department or office website that you like so much that you want it to appear at the top of your own news feed? You can do this with Highlighted News.
Highlighted News lets you grab any news post from anywhere on the IUP website, even one of your own, and “stick” it to the top of your News page in a special highlighted box. It will also appear at the top of your home page’s news feed as well. The news post will remain there until it is manually removed from the Highlighted News collection.
Before you start: Make a note of the news post’s exact headline.
Highlighted News works just like a collection.
The selected news item(s) will now appear at the top of your News
page and will remain there until you remove it from the collection. It
will also appear at the top of the news feed on your site’s
home page. This post will be in addition to the news items that appear
in that area.
You can also do this with your own news posts: for instance, if there
is a news post that you want to receive attention, but which keeps
getting pushed down the list by new posts. Just add this post to the
Highlighted News collection, and it will remain on top until you remove it
from the collection.
Note: If you add a news post from your own
news feed, it will appear twice—once in the Highlighted News collection, and
once in its regular position. This applies to both the home page news feed
and your site’s main News page.
