Creating a News Post

This page details how to create and manage news on your website.

Step 1

Navigate to the Posts listing in WordPress

Step 2

Click the ‘Add New’ button to create a news record. Now you’ll see the Add New Post page where you can create and detail your news page.

Step 3

  • Enter Post title
  • Enter Post content below

Typing / allows you to quickly insert new paragraphs, images, hyperlinks, videos and more

Step 4

Upload a featured image (non-mandatory)

  • Using the tool on the right hand side of the page in WordPress, upload a featured image to display on the event listings page.
  • The image needs to be width 768px (any height)
  • The most recent news article featured image is shown on the homepage
    • Therefore, your page may look a little sparse if there is no featured image on the most recent news article

Step 5

Publish, save or preview your post.

  • At the top of the right column on this screen you’ll see the Publish box. 
  • Here, you can save your post as a draft if you’d like to save it for later. 
  • If you click the Preview button, you can get a preview of how the post will look once it’s published.
  • The Status of the post will show if the post has been published, saved as a draft, if it’s pending review of if it’s been scheduled.
  • The next two links show the visibility of the post — or what visitors will be able to see your post. 
  • The Publish line shows whether the post will be published immediately or at a later date.

Step 6

Once you’ve clicked Publish, you can view your post on both the news listing and news details page
