plugin workspaces provides a "Project news" content type for projects.

A project news item is composed:

  • a title
  • a main illustration (optional)
  • a start date (optional)
  • an end date (optional)
  • content (rich text)

News display

Project news is displayed on a project's home page, in a carousel in the left-hand side area, below the alert.
By default, a maximum of 5 news items are displayed, sorted by descending start date.

Creating a news item

When no news exists for a project and the logged-in user has sufficient rights, the news area is replaced by an area for creating news:

If at least one news item exists, a "+" button to create a new news item is available when hovering over the carousel.

Project news management/modification rights are managed by the "News" module.

A user has the right to create a project news item if and only if:

  • he has "Create a page", "Add content" and "Create a news project" rights on the "News" module
  • he has the right to "Modify from front-office" on the home page of a project area

A news item is created with the title "New news item" and the default text "Enter the content of your news item". 

The news page is automatically created under the "News" root page of the project site.

Editing/deleting a news item

Modifying/deleting a news item is accessible by hovering over it in the carousel for users who have the right to do so.

The author of a news item has the right to modify/delete his/her own news items.

A user has the right to modify/delete any news item if he/she has the Modify content/Delete page right on the "News" module.
Be careful not to add these rights to just any profile.

News editing is carried out directly on the news page, field by field, using front-edition tools.
