If you want to add a new news-item enter the title of the news item below. It will then be added as a subpage of News. If a news-item with the same title already exists you will be asked to edit this page. Therefore try to make the title of the news unique (for instance instead of "Middleearth User Group Meeting" write "Middleearth User Group Meeting 5" or "Middleearth User Group Meeting - Spring 2014").

In the form that comes up enter a one or two sentence summary of the news-item. This will appear on the title page and is limited in size so make sure that it gives a good summary that will interest people. The long text can be as long as you want to. It will be visible when the full news-item is viewed. The date of the news-item is used to sort the list of news. Usually this will be todays date or a few days in the last (for a release for instance)


For the manual markup of news-items see this article
