Reusing Announcements

Announcements are simple pages that can be pulled into a listbox as prominent links in the right column of your homepage (or any other page for that matter). The most common question we hear is, “I’d like to re-use my announcements periodically… do I have to delete and rebuild them every time?” Luckily, you do not, and here are our suggested steps for reusing announcements taken from the Cascade help pages:

  1. Select the announcement you want to hide and UN-publish it.
  2. Click the Edit tab and then the System sub-tab.
  3. UN-check the “Include when publishing” and “Include when indexing” boxes and Submit.
  4. Publish your announcement folder and any page displaying your announcements Listbox (if applicable).

When you’re ready to reactivate your hidden announcement:

  1. Select the announcement.
  2. Click the Edit tab and then the System sub-tab.
  3. Check the “Include when publishing” and “Include when indexing” boxes and Submit.
  4. Publish your announcement folder and any page displaying your announcements Listbox (if applicable).
