That’s the place for your news or your blog. All news posts are shown in an overview, complete with date, title, thumbnail picture and short summary (title and summary are fed from the news post directly). When you go to the site of a certain news post you can add a date, title, picture or album and text.
NOTE: If you don't want to use this function you can choose to hide your news in the website settings under "show news in the sidebar".
Click the button "+News" in the top bar to the left to add a new post.
Click on the news in the Navigation, go to "Options".
Select how many news will be shown, if the date and images should be visible or not and how many characters should appear as a summary in the news overview.
