There are a couple of options for creating a News section.

One is to enable the Noticeboard (or Weblog) app, which you can rename it to News if you want to.

This is really easy to get going with, and also allows other members of your site to contribute, should you wish them to. It will generate an email Notification to users when content is published. A few sites do things this way.

The other option is to create a Page in the CMS, called News/Noticeboard/Updates/Whatever. Then inside that create more Pages, which themselves are News stories.

The News page can contain a Filtered Item List to create a index of all the stories. This is how the Noticeboard section of the main Voice site is done. In this case the Filtered Item List is configured to show a grid of items, in "Title and Subtitle" mode, and also show the Related Image for each item. See this thread for instructions and another example of how you can set this up.

The advantage of this is that it's more flexible in how you want to configure it, but it is harder to get started with than just enabling the Noticeboard app!

Hope this helps

Thank you Joe, I've created a page and add pages as needed. I've also downloaded the pdf from the thread if needed in the future.
