Featuring News on BigTree

To feature a news article on the homepage under RECENT NEWS

The reason for featuring on the homepage is to keep the article there longer and on top of regular news articles.

  • Login to BigTree.
  • Go to the News module.  (http://www.depauw.edu/admin/news/)
  • Click on the star for the article.
  • Double check that 'Remove from Homepage' field is unchecked (this is the default) in the edit page of the news article.

Notes:

  • News article priorities are featured (starred) first by most recent, then the most recent unfeatured news articles.
  • Articles must not have the 'remove from homepage' field checked.

To remove the featured article from the homepage:

  • Login to BigTree.
  • Go to the News module.  (http://www.depauw.edu/admin/news/)
  • Edit the article and click on 'Remove from Homepage'.
  • Save.
  • Leave the article Starred - this keeps it featured on other pages and in the featured news sidelet.
