News syndication

There is the ability to syndicate news between organisations. This is where a parent organisation can create a category of news that can then be syndicated and displayed on the child organisations site.

As news articles are added at the parent level with the specified category, they are automatically updated in the news feed on both the parent and child site.

Below are the steps;

1. In the parent site, create a category eg. Club News.

For instructions on how to create a category see https://support.sportsground.com/hc/en-us/articles/214899007-Categorise-news-articles

2. Apply this category to the relevant new article(s).

The news will now be syndicated. Each time a news article is added to the parent site and tagged with the specified category, it will automatically add this article to the child sites' news feed.
