Creating a News Publication


Concept


Steps:

  1. Begin by navigating to the Folder Properties page.

     

    Click the Content Management link.

    Step 1
  2. Click the Browse Publications link.

    Step 2
  3. Click the Add Publication button.

    Step 3
  4. Use the Folder Properties page to set the properties for a new folder or to update property details for an existing folder. The Folder Properties page is used for news publications as well as for sections.

     

    Users can add folders at any level for which they have authorization. Only top administrators can create news publications at the root of the news publications feature. At the publication level, any folder members with the proper privilege can add sections.

     

    In this example, as a top administrator for news publications, you will create a news publication. You will specify the audience for this publication by viewer role.

    Step 4
  5. Enter the desired information into the Title field. Enter

     a valid value
     e.g.
     "Training News"
    .

    Step 5
  6. Click in the Summary field.

    Step 6
  7. Enter the desired information into the Summary field. Enter

     a valid value
     e.g.
     "Training news and information"
    .

    Step 7
  8. Select the Allow Submits from Pagelet check box to enable users to submit news articles from the homepage pagelet.

     

    Click the Allow Submits from Pagelet option.

    Step 8
  9. Specify the audience for this publication.

     

    Click the Viewer Role list.

    Step 9
  10. Click the PAPP_EMPLOYEE list item.

    Step 10
  11. Next, on the Folder Security page, you will add another user with administrator privileges, which will allow this user to create sections within the news publication.

     

    Click the Folder Security tab.

    Step 11
  12. Use the Folder Security page to manage the folder members and their privileges. This page lists the members and privilege sets for the current folder. Actual privileges are assigned on the Set Members Privileges page.

     

    A new section automatically inherits the members and privileges of its parent news publication. However, privileges added later are not automatically transferred down the folder hierarchy and must be updated on a folder-by-folder basis. To assist with this process, an Inherit Members button appears when you view folder security for any subfolder, enabling you to quickly duplicate the same members as assigned to the parent folder.

     

    Note. A top administrator is automatically granted all privileges for all content and folders of the feature without being an explicitly assigned or listed member of a folder.

    Step 12
  13. Click the Add Member button.

    Step 13
  14. Use the Set Members Privileges page to assign privilege sets to the selected member.

    Step 14
  15. Click the Member Type list.

    Step 15
  16. Click the User list item.

    Step 16
  17. Click in the Member Name field.

    Step 17
  18. Enter the desired information into the Member Name field. Enter

     a valid value
     e.g.
     "VP1"
    .

    Step 18
  19. Click the Administrator option.

    Step 19

    Step 23
  24. The new news publication appears at the root of the folder hierarchy.
