All content types share a set of standard fields that are introduced in Navigating a node edit form. This guide focuses on additional fields for news.
Steps in this guide
- Add a news node
- Select article category
- Select issue date
- Add body content
- Add related content
- Change the standard node settings
- Preview and publish the news item
For general guidance on adding and editing content, see:
To add a news item, use the AdminUI toolbar and navigate to Content > Add content > News
This takes you to a node edit form for a news node.
Select an article category from the dropdown list ( 1 ). 'Article category' is a taxonomy, so its terms can be changed by content administrators.
Choose the issue date under 'Meta data' ( 2 ). This is displayed in the frontend - on the news item and in teasers.
Add the main content of your news item to the 'Body' field. You can learn more about using this field in Introduction to the WYSIWYG editor.
You can attach related content in the form of internal and external links, as well as uploading files. To learn more about this, see Adding related content to a node.
The standard node settings (e.g. authoring information) are at the side of the node edit form. You can learn more about these settings in Changing standard node settings.
At the bottom of the node edit form you can save and preview your content.
Before you save your news as 'published', you should preview it to see how it displays - see Previewing your content. Once you're happy with how it looks, publish the node.
