Automatic liftups: news, events & articles

Steps on how you can create an automatic news, event or article liftup to your page on aalto.fi.

Create automatic news liftup

  • Find the page where you want the automatic liftup (= news article feed) to be shown e.g. your research group page or a hub.
  • Go to edit mode.
  • Select from components "Add content: automatic news liftup".
  • You can create one automatic liftup component to showcase one type of news articles:
    1. filter the news articles to this component by filling in the categories used on the news articles
    2. filter the news articles to this component by filling in the primary tags used on the news articles
    OR
    3. filter the news articles to this component by using "relates to" field (= the right HUB/research group page that the news have to be marked as "related to") to showcase them in this liftup.
  • You can show either public news or news restricted for the Aalto community (selected at the end of the component under "Role restictions").
  • Don't use all three fields at the same time: within one filter (categories/primary tags/relates to) the content will be filtered by using OR-search (e.g. show news articles that have in the primary tags field A OR B OR C), but if you have used two or three filters in creating the automatic liftup, the content will be filtered via AND-search (e.g. show news articles that have in the primary tags field A OR B OR C – AND – that have in relates to field A HUB OR B HUB OR C HUB). If there are just a few of these kinds of news, the news feed will be quite empty. So make sure you think how to build the filter for the automatic liftup.
  • Then, click on "Save".
  • Now the component shows all the news articles that you have chosen by using tags/filters OR relates to field
  • If the relevant news articles are not showing, they might be lacking information (category / primary tags / secondary tags / relates to)

If you look at the example below, you see that e.g. this automatic news liftup shows only news articles related to “Collaboration” HUB, i.e. this automatic liftup shows only news articles that were tagged "Relates to" Collaboration HUB.
