Creating a News Archive

Creating a News Archive


Journalists and other visitors to your site may find it helpful if you provide an archive of past press releases. With Estrada, you can create an archive using either page bricks or the media brick.


Steps for Creating a News Archive Using Estrada Page Bricks

  1. Decide where you wish for site visitors to access your news archive page. Generally, it is convenient to place the archive page on your News Release page so that you have fewer clicks when you cut old release bricks and move them to the News Archive.
  2. Move your cursor to the location for the archive, create a new page, and title it “Archive” or another suitable name.
  3. Click on the title of the archive page so that you move to the author side of it. You may wish to create pages on this level to sub-divide your archive, for example, you might use separate pages for different years and/or months.
  4. Return to the page where you current news releases are being published, and move to the author side.
  5. Cut the brick containing an old press release.
  6. Go to the author side of your archive page, click to move to the area the month/year that the release was published, and paste the brick containing the old press release.
Note: If you used Estrada’s brick scheduling feature, be sure to turn it off when adding the press release brick in your archive. Otherwise, an expired brick will not be visible from the user side of your site or able to be found by the search engine.


Creating an Archive Using the Media Brick

  1. Follow the steps above for “Using the Media Brick to Display Sets of Press Release Document Files.” Use this media brick and folder to publish your current press releases.
  2. Decide where you wish for site visitors to access your Archive page (where they can access old releases). Generally, it is convenient to place the archive page on your News Release page so that you have fewer clicks when you cut old release bricks and move them to the archive.
  3. Move your cursor to the location for the archive, create a new page, and title it “Archive” or another suitable name.
  4. Click on the title of the archive page so that you move to the author side of it.
  5. Follow the steps above for setting up a media folder and media brick. Place the media brick on your archive page.
  6. When it is time to move a release from the current news page to the archive.

If you use another Web authoring program, you could create a folder in your web site directory called archive, move pages files for each old release into it, create an archive page containing links to the page files for the old press releases. Be sure to remember to add a link from the archive page to each old release page that you add to the archive folder.
