  • News page automatically shows the latest 10 posts, older posts are organised automatically into monthly archives
  • If you're running a blog (where the news is the primary content of the site) you can set your news page to be your home page just by dragging it to the top of the list in the pages module
  • News items can feature an unlimited number of different content blocks (just like pages) which can be dragged and dropped into any order - this makes it really easy to make the layouts look really cool!
