The Announcement content type is used for reporting news from DGs.
Announcements are displayed in the European Commission website's list view here: https://commission.europa.eu/news_en and can also be simultaneously displayed elsewhere on the site, including department and topic pages.
Announcements appear in the 'Latest' block on any page where enabled, for instance a department page.
- commission.europa.eu site: the Announcement content type must be used to publish news from DGs and the Press Corner. All press releases are automatically 'pulled into' the CMS and not duplicated
- other EC branded websites: implementation and use of the announcement content type is recommended if the site hosts a significant volume of "Announcement" type of content
If you need to create/edit an announcement and/or add a press release to an European Commission website page, check the News content type - Europa Web Content Management System - EC Extranet Wiki.
There are 9 categories of announcement currently available to use on the European Commission website. These are
- press release
- fact sheet
- daily news
- Commissioners' weekly activity
- upcoming events
- weekly meeting.
Announcement content type fields that you should use include title, description, date, location. It is also possible to add an image.
The Communication department organises regular Content management system training sessions.
