Websites and eCommerce users can manage their online news content using an option in Platinum.

More Information

Managing your online news content

  • In Platinum, go to " Reports & Settings Maintenance Options Online Control Panel". This will take you to your online control panel.
  • Click the [Edit My News] button.
  • If you have not entered news before you will be taken straight to the "Add New Article" page, otherwise your existing articles will be listed:
    • To add a new article, click the Add new article link.
    • To amend or remove an existing article, click the Edit or Delete links next to the article.

Adding or amending a news article

  • In "Title" type a short title or headline for the article. For Platinum Online users with a website, these are usually shown on the home page.
  • In "Summary" type a summary of the article. This is also usually shown on your home page, and is also shown on your "Virtual Showroom" screen-saver.
  • In "Content" type the full content of the article. When the title of a news article is clicked the full content will be shown in its own page.
  • Click [Update] when you are done.
The Summary is shown on your "Virtual Showroom" screen-saver at a larger size.
You can have an article appear on your website only, or screen-saver only, by ticking and clearing the boxes below Content as appropriate.
