Creating a News Feed

Issue/Question

How do I create a news feed on my page?

Environment

  • Omni CMS
    • OU Add-Ons

Resolution

  1. While editing an editable region, click Insert Component in the WYSIWYG editor toolbar.
  2. In the Choose Component box, click News Feed.
  3. Click Insert.
  4. Under Edit Component, enter information in the form fields.​​​​​​
    • News ID - The unique ID associated with the News Add-on from which you are wanting to show articles. To find the ID associated with a News Addon, you can do so by logging into OU Add-Ons and selecting News.
    • Articles - The number of news articles to display in the feed.
    • Style - The look and feel of the feed. Some feed styles are too large for side columns, remember to select a style that fits your page layout from the styles. For a more in-depth description of the various feed style, and some examples visit our News Feed Component page.
    • Category ID (Optional) - Specify a Category ID to only display articles from a category. To find the ID associated with a news category, you can do so by logging into OU Add-Ons, selecting News, and then clicking on the Manage Categories Icon next to the appropriate News Add-On listed.
    • Featured Articles Only - Only display articles that are marked as Featured in OU Add-Ons.
    • Open Links in New Tab - Open news feed article links in a new tab or window.
  5. When done, click Save.
  6. Save your page.
    Note: When previewing the page you will see a placeholder with the available settings displayed. Since the news asset contains PHP code you can only see the final product after publishing.
