General Support: Re: News Items
I think I maybe didn't explain myself very well last time.
I do want all the news items I create to be shown on my main home page via the includelet. The timescale for showing them on my home page is 1 month - snippets then disappear from the home page but the item remains accessible on the news page. However if I set a 'schedule' so that the snippet is removed from the home page on a certain date the news item is taken totally offline and is removed also from the news page.
I need to be able to keep the historical item on the news page.
Hope this makes sense.
There's no way to independently control what is shown in the Latest News includelet, and so yes, as you say, if you set up a schedule to "unpublish" an item then it will remove it completely from the site.
One option would be to use the Item List includelet to choose explicitly which items you want highlighted on the front page, though this would require you to manually edit this every time you had a new news story you wanted to show.
I can't think of any way in the system to have an individually configurable schedule to remove items from an includelet that doesn't also unpublish the file.
