How to create a news item 

  1. First log in
  2. Go to the main menu and then 'News'
  3. Select the 'Add a news item' option

What can you enter and what does it mean

The meta data

  1. Name: Give a title to your news item here. Don't make the title too long.
  2. Release date: The date indicates when it will be published. Don't put it too early in case it is linked to a specific date, because it might get pushed away by other news items.
  3. Expire date: here you indicate when the news is no longer relevant

The news item itself

In the text editor at 'description', you can write your entire message with the desired formatting options. Some advice...

Button effect

In a news release, it is useful to add a clear Call to action or CTA. To highlight it properly, it's best to make it a button like this : 

Klik op deze knop

How to create such a button? You can only do that if you have a PREMIUM account or higher, as this is part of the advanced editing options.

  1. Create a clickable link:
    • In the text editor menu you will find this URL-link button
    • Enter as display text there, for example. "Click this button."
    • Enter as URL the website link where people will go if they click on it
  2. Select the text of the clickable link and select "Style" in the menu.
    • If it is a URL (only in this case!) then you will see the style option "Button".
