Keeping your customers up to date with what you do is very important, so these snippets of news can be extremely helpful.
Items are shown in reverse order (ie latest first) and there is simply a form you fill in with your news detail - just like any other page.
And of course you can decide if they are active or inactive.
So the idea is you have a snippet (we call it a teaser) and more information available when the user clicks.
Just like any other page you can add images, fonts, colours - whatever you like and you can have some text shown before your list of news items. Or a video or something. To be honest whatever you want.
Then you decide if it is to be a single colum or spaced out over 2 columns newspaper-style. Like this one.
You can also choose the number of items that will be shown - both here and on the home page. And of course the background colour.
We really recommend that you have some news on your front page as it shows your people and the dear search engines that things are changing.
