On the "Create New News" page, you can choose which News Section to display it in and set the subject and body of your news item.

You can create a new section by clicking the newspaper icon with the plus sign; for more information, please see the News Section segment of our CARMA News Admin article.

Creating a News Item in CARMA

After selecting a section for your news item to appear in, you will need to define when the news item will be displayed. You can do so by entering a Freeform Date/Time, using either keywords or a date expressed in year-month-day form (yyyy-mm-dd), or a date expressed as 10 August 2010 (or any date in that format).

After you have configured the above items, you can set your News Item's Subject and Body. The subject will be displayed, along with the display date, on the News Admin main page. The body will be the message you send to your members. When you are done configuring your new News Item, click the "Create This News" button.

On the main news page, you will be able to edit your news item, change its publish date, and delete it.
