News Feed Module

If possible, please show the category of the articles that appear in the news feed module on the /news page.  The plan is to use multiple categories and have them all pull into the same feed.

    1. There will be a news feed module on the front-page which lists the category and title of the article page.

    2. The category will link to a collection with the same name that exists in the steering group.

    - The collections will be created in the group beforehand.

    3.  When an article page is created, it will be automatically pulled into the feed module, but will not automatically be added to the collection.

    4. A Hubmin will add a link to  the article page to the collection as a post.

    5.  There will be a “see more” link at the bottom of the list of article pages in the news feed module on the front page that will link to the News Archive page.

    6.  There is a mock-up attached.

    ATTACHMENT: Incorrect file type.

    I took screen shots of the power point slides.  These should load with no problem.

    If I'm reading the wish correctly, this mostly involves setting up an existing module and adding/maintaining content, which the hub owners and/or other people they have to manage content may do at any time. A HUBzero developer or liaison is not needed for setting up modules, articles, or collections.

    The part about the category links pointing to collections, however, would require development as it would necessitate altering the existing functionality of the module.

    The alternative to any development would simply be a manual list of articles in place of the module. This would, of course, require someone to manually update. Or, discard the idea of a collection and simply have the categories point to article categories (which I believe is the current behavior).

    Shawn,

    Thank you for your response.  It would have saved my team more than a week if this would have been conveyed to us earlier.

    Currently none of this exists on live.  In dev, only News Archives exists.  I tried to make a Member News Archives, but apparently some assistance on your end is needed so that only the title appears, rather than the entire article.  We are also asking for more user-friendly formatting of the news feeds-- a table, rather than listing all different info one on top of the other.  Please see attachment.

    Also I was unable to set the URL as news/member as we had discussed in the August 12th status meeting.  

    Please let me know of any remaining questions or concerns, and how to proceed.

    Thank you!
