MAKING STORIES LIVE
  • Unless changed, the default for stories is hidden.

  • Click Hidden and change to Live, or when creating your event, you have the option to make the event Live as well.

IMAGES
  • It’s best practice to add an image to a story.

  • You can always check for shared images in the CMS if you don’t have one in your group.

 SUMMARIES
  • Content entered into the summary appears under the title when widgets pull stories on to a page

  • Keep summaries brief and do not repeat them in the body copy, this will duplicate on the event page.

SHARING
  • Get the most out of your work by sharing your story with other groups.
  • Enter other groups who might want to post or link to your story as well.
  • You can always suggest to the Homepage group as well!
  • Note that content shared with other groups will be approved by that group’s content manager.
