News Item or Article?

Guidelines for using a News Item versus an Article for your product in the Extension CMS.

Product Title Guidelines

The title of your article, webinar, learn now video, online course, publication or in-person workshop impacts the success of your product.

Summary Description Guidelines

Like your product title, the short description you develop for your product also serves as an essential tool in introducing customers to your content.

Lead Image Guidelines

Lead images are used in product listings and on the product pages. Photographic images should be landscape orientation in as close to a 3:2 ratio as possible.

Category Selections

Category selections on a product determine where it lives on the website. Every product is required to have at least one set of categories selected.

Include Authors, Instructors, and Speakers

The Extension website relies on your expertise to provide a trusted source of science-based education. We want our users to quickly relate to our website content. One way to achieve this is to identify Authors, Instructors, and Speakers on all products.

Adding Links into Body Text

Internal (within Extension) and external links are handled differently within the body text of a news item or article.

Request Related Products

Related products are shown to the right of the content on articles, videos, publications, etc.

Request an Auto-generated PDF

Auto-generated pdfs provide the user with a formatted and branded document that will look the same each time it is printed.
