    • News title: The headline is displayed on all elements.
    • News subtitle: A secondary line is displayed below the headline but not on navigation tiles or in the Latest News widget.
    • Image: upload an image to display on the news item's landing page, as a header graphic on the article page, or as the thumbnail in the Latest News widget.

    • Choose publish date: the date displayed on news article pages and in the Latest News widget, which is also used to order slider and navigation news items.

    • Summary: a brief description of the contents of the new item, which is only used for featured news.

    • News content: the entire body content of the news item displayed on the news article page.

    • Read more label: (Optional) overrides the default Read more label on Featured news items and the Read more button on slider news items. Enter the text to display instead of Read more.

    • Read more link: by default, the link will link to the news article page. A custom URL can be entered to override this default destination. 

      • If you have other special characters that are causing links to break, replace those characters with their corresponding UTF-8 codes.
  4.   Select News type dropdown and select one of the following options:
    • news: This type will be featured on your portal's news page. Access it directly by clicking the article title in the Latest News widget.
      • You can also access all articles by clicking the More News news widget or by accessing https://YourPortalURL.com/news/list/.
      • On the news overview page, you can see news items that have been published in the portal. If a news item includes an article within Bynder, the article text will be featured on the news page under the article image.
      • If the news item links to a specific location within the portal, such as a collection or an external destination outside of Bynder, clicking the news title will utilize the custom URL to link to that destination.
      • For external news items, the title of the article on the news page will link to the site of the news item. This is a great place to inform users of company news or highlight specs about the portal. 
        • If you have other special characters that are causing links to break, replace those characters with their corresponding UTF-8 codes.
    • slider: The slider option is frequently used to link to internal and external articles, highlight from the Asset Bank or collections, navigate users to the Asset Bank, or link to featured collections. The sliding content featured at the top of the landing page, draws attention to relevant materials.

      • When a slider news item is published, it always appears at the top of the landing page, and each additional item appears as a sequential item in the Slider.

      • By default, the slider links to the news article page. However, a slider can act as a link to a specific collection within your portal. Clicking on the Slider's button will link to the collection URL entered in the Read More link. It can also link to an external page or a specific selection of assets in the Asset Bank.

        • If you have other special characters that are causing links to break, replace those characters with their corresponding UTF-8 codes.
    • navigation: Navigation blocks allow users to quickly navigate tic locations within the portal, such as collections and pre-filtered Asset Bank states or external destinations. The Navigation blocks will not link to an article page, so you need to enter the URL in the Read more link. Your navigation blocks appear below the Slider.

    • featured: If a news item is published as featured, the article's image, headline, and summary will be displayed on the landing page. The user can click from the news title or Read More link to view the news article page.

      • Publishing a featured news item is recommended for articles published within Bynder that you want to prominently highlight on the homepage.

      • Use direct links to link to specific pages, and modules or to load the Asset Bank with specific filters pre-applied. 

  5. Open the Target dropdown and select if you want the Read More link to open in the same window or a new window.

    • (Optional) Click the Styling option dropdown and choose one of the available styling options. Contact Customer Support to enable this option.

  6. To publish content right away click the checkbox Publish. If you do not check this the content will be saved in your News Management but will not publish to the homepage. 

  7. Select View Permissions

    • Show by default: Show to users by default
    • Hide by default: Hide from users by default
  8. Click Save and add visibility restriction.

  9. Once visibility restrictions are configured click Save.
