Stories

Add stories to your group to share on the Emory & Henry Website or get shared stories to add to your pages. 

Adding Stories

  1. From the Dashboard, click the Stories tab.

  2. If you are creating a new story, click the blue + Add new. 

  3. Fill out the form with the relevant information for your story. A title and summary are required.

  4. Click Save when finished. You can also click Save and Go to Story for a preview that will open in a new tab.

Making Stories Live

  • Unless changed, the default for stories is hidden.

  • Click Hidden and change to Live, or when creating your story, you have the option to make the story Live as well.

Images

  • It’s best practice to add an image to a story.

  • You can always check for shared images in the CMS if you don’t have one in your group.

  • You can also choose to attach a gallery to the story. Make sure to add captions on the gallery images.

Summaries

  • Content entered into the summary appears under the title when widgets pull stories on to a page.

  • Keep summaries brief and do not repeat them in the body copy, this will duplicate on the story page.

Sharing

  • Get the most out of your work by sharing your story with other groups.
  • Enter other groups who might want to post or link to your story as well.
  • You can always suggest to the Homepage group as well!
  • Note that content shared with other groups will be approved by that group’s content manager.
