News layout allows to separate news form (the way articles look ) and news content (text, images). Thanks to news layout in website builder WebWave you can quickly create many subpages which will look almost exactly the same and will only be different in terms of content.
In order to create news layouts, go to News -> News layouts
You will see a new layout, edit it just like any subpage - add and remove elements, move them and change its style.
After creating a news layout you will find a few special elements on it which enable adding news content title, news date and its thumbnail.
News header is a news layout element where you can type news title. The title will be displayed on a news list and will be automatically added to a news URL address.
News content is a regular text element where you can upload news content and images. A couple of first words typed in this field will be displayed as a news preview.
News thumbnail is an image which is displayed on the news list as a thumbnail of a certain news layout. A thumbnail can be changed just like any other image by selecting "edit content" in an image corner or in the Settings panel by selecting "thumbnail".
News date shows when the news was created.
In news layout you may set how an article will look like - the layout and style of elements.
You add elements' content when creating news.
Elements, which can have different content in particular news layouts, are all the special elements, galleries and Facebook buttons (like it and comment).
Special elements need to be situated in every news layout. They can not be deleted but might be hidden. Go to the layers panel and hide elements by clicking on an eye icon.
