News page

Describes how to create and use news articles in Optimizely Configured Commerce.

Use the News Page page type to add press releases, new product information, or other company news to the website. To create a news article, the user must have a content editor role, content approver role, or content administrator role assigned. An ISC_Admin cannot create content by default.

To create and use news articles:

  1. Hover over the blue triangle in the upper left corner of the website and select Show CMS.

  2. Click Content Tree in the upper left corner.

  3. Click Edit.

  4. Click the chevron to the right of the Home menu item, then select Add Page.



    If a tertiary subpage menu is desired, create the new page from the appropriate secondary page.

  5. Under Item Type, select News Page.

  6. Select a Template, then click Next.

  7. Populate the Name, Title, and URL fields.

    The Name field is limited to 50 characters.

  8. Enter additional SEO information as appropriate, including Meta Description and Meta Keywords, and Open Graph tags.

  9. Add the content Author and Publish Date, then add the news information in the News Contents field.

  10. Select from the Hide Header, Hide Footer, Hide from Search Engines, Hide From Site Search, Exclude from Navigation, or Exclude from Sign In Required options at the bottom of the screen.

  11. Click Save.

Next, add the News Page View widget to view News Contents.

To add the News Page View widget to the new page:

  1. Select Add Content at the top of the page.
  2. Select the News Page View item type.
  3. Click Next.
  4. Add a CSS Class, if applicable, then click Save.
  5. Publish the widget as normal.
