Articles are what go into your Newsletter to break up your content. When working on your Newsletter, you can create as many new articles as you need. When you use sections to categorise your articles, it lets you choose what part of the newsletter your article will appear in. The sections location in the article will depend on the layout of your template. For example, at the top of your Newsletter you will see 'New Article(Feature Article)', the part in brackets, i.e. Feature Article, is the section your new article will appear in. You can Change the Section an Article Appears in at any time while editing your newsletter.

Each article you add consists of a Summary and Full Story area. Content entered into the summary of your article displays on the cover page of your newsletter. When readers click the 'Read More' link beneath the summary, they will be taken to the Full Story area. For this reason, you should always keep Summary text short and interesting so that your readers want to click through and read the bulk of the article. 'Read More' will not appear if the Full Story area is left blank. Use the instructions below to add an article to your newsletter.
