Adding News Items

- Add your content in the Body Text field. This is the main section of your news item (learn how to apply styles to your text).
- In the Image field, click Choose File to select an image from your computer to attach to your news item, and type a caption (if desired) into the Image Caption field.
- Click Save.
Are you ready to publish the news item to your site? You can click the Status dropdown and select Submit for Approval (if you're a contributor) or Publish (if you're an approver). More about publishing to your live site >>
Are you posting a news item that you'd like to feature on the www.aps.edu homepage?
Publish the news item to your news folder and then submit a request to the Web Team by out our help form to ask us to feature it on the district site.
The APS website has news portlet boxes that highlight recent district news. Departments have those same portlets that allow them to show the recent news items from their department news folders.
