Examples:
  • If this is the main News & Announcements category that appears on the school's home page then this story shows on the school's home page.
  • If this is the Athletics News that appears on an athletics landing page then this story shows on the athletics landing page.

Hide a news story

There are a few different options for removing news from your public website:
 
1. Hide from Homepage: Schedule a news story to be removed from the homepage at a certain date and time. After that date, it will still appear on the News and Announcements page of your public website for families to access, but won't be prominently shown on your school's homepage. 
 
2. Unpublish: To completely remove a news story from your public website while still keeping it in your admin site, unpublish it by clicking the 3-dots menu for the news story and selecting "Unpublish". This removes the story completely from both the homepage and the News and Announcements page of your public website. You'll still be able to see the story in your admin site by clicking "Show unpublished news".

3. Delete: To remove the new story from both the public website and the admin site, click the 3-dots menu for the story and select "Delete". This action is permanent. Once the story is deleted it is completely gone. If you think you might ever want to reference or reuse the story, select "Unpublish" instead.
