I'd like to replicate a page on my site that looks like this:
I think it's a news page that displays news items, but I'm not really sure how that works.
I've started by creating a news page here:
It has a news includelet added to the page. and under layout, i've created an "item" that points to itself.
I'm not really sure how to create a news item. But I think if i create a subpage(? I'm guessing), then the subpage becomes an item and should show in the includelet?
I'm obviously misunderstanding how to make it work, becuase my page doesn't show in my news includelet.
I like everything about the Hexham compeition page - the intro, the filter (wow), the closing dates, the icons, and the news items in boxes that are all line up nicely with eye catching pictures.
Please teach me how to do all this on our site. :)
The way I have done the competition results is a little more complex, it suits the way we run our competitions but may not be the best approach for your club. It requires me to create 4 pages and a news item per competition so is a little more involved admin-wise.
I will do you a very quick n basic how-to with some screenshots showing how I used the layout and includelets for a news section tomorrow.
Thanks Stephen - that would be great - very much appreciated :)
It's a bit of a rough and ready document in pdf form - maybe I should be looking at one of the voice apps to document what I have set up...
Hope you manage to follow it. The "filtered item list" includelet is quite useful. Note that you don't have to use the "filter item list keywords" includelet to use it but it is a nice feature.
Wow, awesome instructions! Do you want a job? ;-)
More seriously, I was planning on putting together some How To guides for the documentation, perhaps I can use this as a basis for a guide?

Lol - Well you know I am always open to offers ;-)
Yes, feel free to make use of it.
Brilliant - Thanks Stephen. I've been playing around today and making a little progress but this will really help. Looks clear enough at a glance. I may have to do this in stages but I'll reach out if I get stuck. Thanks so much for doing this!!!
Love it. Thanks for your help Stephen - here's what I have so far.
I would never have figured that out for myself. Consistant Keywords are really importantant (obviously!), that was my only stumbling block! I've not used folders - but I can see how that works. News confounds me a little, but I'll sort that out another time! Thanks SO much - I really appreaciate this!
