Adding/Editing Stanford News Entries: Alternate location

This learning unit addresses editing the Alternate location field for a Stanford News Entry.

Sometimes you want an article listed in a Stanford News Entry List (view) to point either to a permanent page elsewhere in the Student Affairs site or else to an external web page, rather than to the individual Stanford News Entry page (node) displaying the Full Story field.

To do this, enter a URL into the Alternate location field.

Terms: Page versus node

This learning unit covers the terms page versus node.

The terms node and page often seem to be used almost synonymously, which can be somewhat confusing. Strictly speaking, a page and node are not the same.

A node is the main content of a single static web page, without the headers, footers, menus, sidebars, and the like.
