To bring up the interface to edit the site news, click Edit News Items link underneath Manage News Items;
Once you click on the link, the interface will be brought up. You can either select an existing entry by double clicking on it in the list at the top or else create a new one by clicking on New at the top of the page.
When you do either of the above, the interface will be opened underneath the list of existing entries (See below).
The interface as shown on below is the first tab of 3. It contains fields which will show on the homepage if defined. There is the date of the news item, Title, Summary (which will show on the homepage) and checkboxes to have it show on the homepage and at all (published).
The interface shown on the next page is for the main News Article. It uses the same WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) interface as what is used for the main content sections in the CMS. For more detail on the specific functions available in this editor, please see the main content editing section of the user guide.
