Articles Block

Headline

The headline should describe what the Articles block will entail. Think of it as a ‘title’.  This is not a required field.

NOTE: You have the ability to hide the headline field if you still wish to add a descriptive title yet not have it display on the page. Think of it more as an ‘Administrative Label’ if you wish to implement it this way

Headline Size

You have the ability to select the font size of the Articles headline. Heading 2 is set by default, but may need to be adjusted depending on where you nest the articles block within the page. 

Headline Style

Default, bold serif, Bold serif, highlighted (which will add an underline to the headline)

Filter Articles by Tag

Locate the 'Relationships' dropdown tab in the Articles sidebar menu. In the 'Tags' textbox, you can either reference existing (by using autocomplete) or create new taxonomy terms to categorize, classify and organize published articles.

NOTE: Separate the tags with a comma

Additionally, to view existing tags, go to /admin/structure/taxonomy/manage/tags/overview

Items to Display

This determines how many article teasers will be displayed in the block. 

NOTE: If you want to display all related articles without a pager, enter 0

Show Pager

Depending on the number of results and the number of items, this will display a pager. This allows the user to view all of the related articles in a more condensed and controlled way. It also prevents the user from having to navigate to a different page. 

If a pager isn’t selected, users will only see the most recent number of results and items you selected to display. 

Display More Link

Check to include a ' View More' link. To use the default articles path set within SiteNow Articles, make sure the ‘Enable articles listing’ box is checked. Alternatively, a custom URL path can be provided in the ‘Path’ text box below.

Path

You have the option to customize where a user is directed when they click on the ‘View More’ link

If you want users to be directed to a specific page on your site, start typing the page title of the desired piece of content and then select the node from the dropdown menu.

You can also enter an internal path such as /node/add or an external URL such as http://example.com. Enter <front> to link to the front page. Enter <nolink> to display link text only.
