News/Blog Categories allow you to have multiple areas for different updates - for example; Class News, Sports News, a Headteacher Blog, or a Whole School news area. Dependent on your design, you may have already been set up with a News Category which feeds News Stories through to the homepage.
Navigate to the area of your website where you would like to create a News or Blog category and you will be able to create a News Category if you have the permissions to do so.
Select News or Blog from the Create tab. The News/Blog Category dialog window will appear.
Enter a name for your category in the Category Name field e.g. "Latest News" or "Headteacher's Blog".
Enter a description for your category in the Category Description field. For example "Read the latest school news here".
Click Create to save your Category. The page will refresh and an empty News or Blog Category will be displayed.
