Resolution

The News Add-On must be requested through OU Add-Ons by the Main Site Contact. The steps below have to be completed by the Main Site Contact:

  1. Log into OU Add-Ons.
  2. Click Sites.
  3. Click View Your Sites.
  4. Click the Action Page next to the site you want to turn the News Add-On on for.
  5. Click Administration.
  6. Click Modify Add-Ons.
  7. Click Add Add-On.
  8. Check News Add-On.
  9. Click Add Add-On.

If a second News Add-On needs to be turned on it has to be done by the OU Campus Administrators. You will need to contact the ITS Service Desk with the following information:

  1. The address of your website.
  2. The folder of where you want the News Add-On to be. This will need to be a folder that does not currently exist. For example, we add /news by default. If you are requesting a second News Add-On, we need to know what that folder needs to be instead of /news.
  3. The email addresses of the people who need to be able to manage the News Add-On and it's components.
