News & Events Listings

These instructions describe how to add a section for listing your unit's news or events, similar to https://cse.umn.edu/college/news and https://cse.umn.edu/college/events.

To start with, these listings are done on advanced pages or landing pages. This is because you use a widget to add the listing.

When you are on one of these pages, select the "Add View Placer" widget option from the drop down of widgets.

This will place the widget on your page. The admin section will look like this:
