Use news to list your latest news articles. News articles can be categorised, filtered and searched.
Microsites have localgov_news enabled by default. The site's Microsite admin may choose to disable this feature.
The fields are identical to those in
localgov_news except we've extended news with the following features:
# Banner field
A news article may have two types of banner, which displays at the top of the page.
- Primary banner: image, text and optional link
- Secondary banner: image
# Layout and rich content
Add one or more page sections, each of which can have 1, 2 or 3 columns, background colours and an option of width and padding. Add content via a rich range of content sections. See the How to add fancy layouts
