To add a new news story, open the Posts > Add New screen from the administration menu. Create your post, adding content related to the article. When you are ready to publish the story, make sure to select the News category from the categories section. Posts in the news category will appear on the category listing at http://yoursite.edu/category/news and can be shown on your site’s front page using the News Feed widget.
For articles that should “go live” on a particular day, you can add a publishing date in the Publish section of the edit screen. Click the edit link next to “Publish Immediately” to enter a future publish date.
