The articles module is where you will be able to manage and control all of the content related to articles on your website.
If you get confused about the terms and names that are given for different sections of the CMS, be sure to check out our glossary for a refresher!
This is the bread and butter of the articles module. Here you will find all of the articles you have ever written in the CMS (unless, of course, you deleted it). As your site grows, you may find it helpful to sort and filter the articles to narrow down what you are looking for. You can also search for the article by name, author, category, or series in the search this list box.
Each article can belong to one series. A series is used to help group your articles together when a user is searching for content on your website.
Unlike the series tag, your articles can have an unlimited number of categories associated with it. Be sure to add category tags with care, since they are used to help a visitor on your website find your content easily.
All of your articles were written by someone! Be sure to acknowledge them by keeping your authors list up to date. Your authors for articles are different than your authors in the blogs module, or preachers in the sermons module. The wonderful thing about having authors separated out in this way, is that the author does not have to have an account on your website (using Monk ID and the People Module), to have an article associated with them. Assigning authors are important, since they are used to help visitors on your website filter by a particular author.
