The Index Page is the first page a user will see when visiting the newsletter. It will automatically display the most recently published newsletter issue. Typically (depending on your theme) the page will be divided into sections:
- Hero Image – the (optional) large image that displays under the header/navigation.
- Featured Articles – the most important articles in the newsletter issue. Used to draw attention to articles you want people to read.
- Dates – If you have the Dates Add-on enabled, this section will display important dates relevant to the newsletter issue.
- Index Articles – the other articles in the newsletter issue. This section can also be categorized if you have the Categories Add-on enabled.
Article Pages also have a few key areas:
- Featured Image – the (optional) large image at the top of the page. This image is the same as the one also used as a article thumbnail on the Index Page.
- Title – the first heading at the top of the page
- Content – the main part of the page containing the article text. This area can include text, images, galleries, tables, etc. You can read more about formatting your content here.
- Sidebar – appears on the left or right side of the page (depending on your theme). It lists all of the articles in the newsletter issue. If you have the Categories Add-on enabled, this list will also be categorized.
- Page Navigation – appears at the bottom of the page and allows users to quickly navigate to the next or previous articles in the issue.
The Archive is a page where users can access old issues of the newsletter. The link to the archive is typically part of the navigation bar. When a new issue is published, it takes top position on the Index Page and the previous issue is automatically pushed into the Archive.
If you have the Print View Add-on enabled, a link will be added to the navigation for a print-friendly layout of the newsletter. Read more about the Print View.
If you have the Email View Add-on enabled, a link will be added to the admin bar when logged in to WordPress for an email-friendly layout of the newsletter. Read more about the Email View.
