When you create a new channel, select the channel type article if the posts that you create need to have elements to support featured and detailed content.
What Content Works Best in Articles?
Articles present extensive content in an attractive and professional format similar to articles you see in newspapers or magazines. Articles are the best option for presenting your more formal communications, such as write-ups, stories, features, reviews, reports, or analyses.
Heading and Teaser Text
Entice readers to read the complete article by giving them a sneak preview of the article's content using headings and teaser texts. Only article posts contain headings, which make them stand out in the newsfeed.
Article Image/ Video
The large article image or video draws readers’ attention like the front page image of a newspaper. You can add additional images, videos, and media galleries in the article body, but only the primary article image or video will appear in the preview in the newsfeed.
Articles can be made detailed and thorough with ease and are the perfect channel for informative, high-profile content with images, image galleries, tables, videos and attachments.
In addition to providing extensive features to present your content in the most engaging manner, Staffbase platform allows you to present the articles in the newsfeed in your preferred layout to the users. To know more about the different layouts offered, see Setting the Layouts of Articles.
