System administrators have the opportunity to curate, or select a number of news items that need special focus. Curated news will appear at the top of the news page (the "News" menu item) as long as the article is curated. Using this feature does not affect the home feed unless the Curated News widget is enabled - so curated news articles are not placed at the top of the feed like "pinned news" articles. To remove a news article from curated news, it must be removed by a system administrator.
How to Curate News
- Click the user profile thumbnail and select 'System Administration'
- Turn on 'Elevated Privileges'
- Select 'Curate News'
- Find the news article(s) you want to add to curated news and hit 'Add'
- If necessary, adjust the order of the curated news articles
- Click 'Save'
You have now curated a series of news articles that will be placed at the top of the news page. If the curated news widget is turned on, the curated news will also appear here. When the curated news article no longer needs special attention, they can be removed from the list and can be found in their "normal" space in the feed, which is determined by the news publication date.
