Adding a Section to a News Publication



  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 an entry in the Title column.

    Step 3
  4. Click the Add Section button.

    Step 4
  5. 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 within a publication. At the publication level, any folder members with the proper privilege can add sections.


    In this example, as a member with administrator privileges in the folder hierarchy, you will create a section within this news publication.

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

     a valid value
     "Portal News"

    Step 6
  7. Click in the Summary field.

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

     a valid value
     "Enterprise Portal training news"

    Step 8
  9. Select the Required Section on Pagelet check box if you want this section to appear on the pagelet. This forces the section onto the pagelet for all viewers and can be used to communicate important information when used in conjunction with a pagelet that is registered as required on a homepage tab.


    Click the Required Section on Pagelet option.

    Step 9
  10. Click the Folder Security tab.

    Step 10
  11. 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.


    Notice that 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 a folder.


    In this example, as an administrator for this news publication, you will add new members to this section.

    Step 11
  12. Click the Add Member button.

    Step 12
  13. Use the Set Members Privileges page to assign privilege sets to the selected member.

    Step 13

    Step 14
  15. Enter the desired information into the Member Name field. Enter

     a valid value

    Step 15
  16. Click the Contributor option.

    Step 16
  17. Click the vertical scrollbar.

    Step 17
  18. Click the OK button.

    Step 18
  19. Selecting the Add Members to Parent Folder check box ensures that members of this section will be able to see both the publication folder and the section folder.


    Click the Add Members to Parent Folder option.

    Step 19
  20. Click the Save button.

    Step 20

You have completed adding a section to a news publication in the content management system.
