I’m pleased to announce that the first of two major phases of the new News project is now complete.
This morning we launched the newly developed news article creation forms. This means that when you create a new article in the College news system, the input screens will look very different. There are now distinct input screens and new fields which you can choose to use to really improve the impact of your news stories with enhanced material and data.
Whilst the new article creation forms are live, the new News channel design will not be rolled out yet. So there will be no impact to the visual display of News articles until Phase two is implemented.
Phase two is the roll out of the new News website design. This will be launched in early 2013.
The launch of the article creation forms in the first phase of the project is necessary to ensure that there is enough News content containing the enhanced material and data to launch the new News design.
