|Reference and advanced topics / Customizing News page|
The News page is the central place for you to see what's happening in the community. The News page features a variety of streams designed to direct you to content, people, and places that pertain directly to you. You can also see your Following stream, any custom streams you have created, and the All Activity streams, which show recent activity from all over the community that you have permission to see.
You can see these streams individually by clicking the link to a stream in the stream menu at the top of the page and scrolling down the page, or you can use the main News page to overview the latest items in each stream in a combined block view. Each block has a header that shows what stream the item came from.
You can pin any of the streams listed on your News page to either the News or Home button in the main menu, depending on how your community manager has set up the main navigation menu in your community. Just click the pin icon from the desired stream's page, and when you click Home or News from anywhere in the application, you are taken to the page you pinned. For more information, see Pinning pages for quick access.
The News page also features a variety of tiles to help you find important people, places, and content quickly. The Trending Content and Trending People tiles are included by default but may be removed by your community manager.
Here's an overview of what you can see on the News page. For a quick visual tour of the News interface, see News page interface.
Content is pulled in and displayed in the News view in the order in which your streams are displayed to the right of News in the stream menu. Duplicated content is removed if it's already being pulled in from a higher-order stream. The content you've read (by clicking through to it either from your desktop or a mobile version of Jive) stays in News for two days before going away. The content you haven't yet read stays for ten days. Because the News streams are designed just for you, you won't see the same content pulled into the News view that other users see.
