News not showing on Login Page

Post by stepping » Tue May 30, 2017 3:33 pm

I want to post a couple of news items on the home page of my Forma.lms website. According to the documentation, it seems easy enough ... go to e-learning --> contents --> news -- enter the text and insert.

However, no matter what I try the News does NOT show on the login page. I have tried both templates, and 3 different browsers. The webpages and internal news work just fine.

Is this a bug, or am I missing something?

Thanks,

Russell

Hi Russ
(welcome on board, btw).

News is one thing, external pages are a different thing.

News appear AFTER the login, provided the NEWS block is turned on.... News should appear in the home page, on the right side.

External pages appear ON THE LOGIN page, before logging in, provided the are not only inserted but also "published" (green flag).

So, the first thing to understand is if you used the news or the external pages....If you used news, you just have to turn the "news" block on.

Hi Max,

Thanks for the clarification. I'm slowly working through the system trying to set my site up.
