Creating a News Page

What is the News Page?

This is a special template that allows you to create a news story page with the following elements:

  • Headline (title of article)
  • Teaser text
  • Date of publication
  • Body content of the article
  • Thumbnail image

Displaying a list of news pages

See News and Events Display Options for examples. These displays often use the Teaser, Thumbnail, and Image feature of the Basic News Page Properties.

Use the List Component to display a collection of news pages.

Creating a News Page

This section includes instructions for Creating a News Page. The next section covers Setting the Page Properties.

1. Navigate to the News section of your AEM site: In the WCM, expand your AEM site by clicking on the [+] icon. Locate your site's "News" page and select it by clicking on it in the left pane.

2. Create the page: With the "News" page selected in the left pane, choose New... in the right pane to create a new page.

Title the page: Enter the title of the news article in the Title field.

Name the page: Enter a url in the Name field – it can match the Title. Separate words with hyphens (-) eg: surrey-athletics-inaugural-golf-classic-2011. Note that Google likes descriptive page names so use keywords that reflect the news story.

Select the "News Page" template from the list of available templates.

Click Create once you have finished.  The news article will now appear on the left pane and right pane of the WCM.
