Place NewsBoard on your site


There are three ways to implement NewsBoard.

  1. Using widget. Go to Appearance/Widgets and there you will find separate widgets for each item. Just place them in any widget area you want. NewsBoard Widget

  2. Inserting in post. Go to Posts/Add New, click on the NewsBoard button and choose the item you want to insert. NewsBoard insert in post

  3. Using shortcode. You can always use a shortcode to insert NewsBoard in a place where you don't have a widget area. This can be done by editing your theme files and pasting

    <?php echo do_shortcode('[NewsBoard id="1"]'); ?>

    with the right id taken from Items.
