Homepage

Editing the Monmouth homepage 

A video or a story block appears at the top of the homepage. Before removing or replacing the video, make sure there is a live story or video ready to replace it.

Adding a video

You can show up to 3 videos at the top.

Switch into the Homepage group. Go to Blurbs > Homepage Videos.
Add the headline and video ID from YouTube. The YouTube ID is at the end of the link: 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JCnSVhhgRFY

To hide a video, change it from live to hidden. If all the homepage videos are hidden, the story block appears instead (as long as there is a live story).

Adding a story 

If the homepage videos are hidden then the story block shows in its place. 

It shows a random starred story from the homepage group. If there are no starred stories, it shows the latest story. Stories must have an image.

The text box shows on right side of the image by default. Tag the story with “left” to show the text box on left. The story summary is capped to about 3 lines.
