The newest blog articles widget is one of our customers’ most important and most-used widgets on the homepage. It gives users a quick overview of the current news from the company.
The widget has been completely revised with the update to Cloud version 32: The theme has been customized and administrators have gained more setting options. These allow the content of the widget to be tailored even more precisely to the users’ interests. In the widget settings, the admins can set which blog articles the users should see:
- All + subscribed: Shows all blog articles from pages/communities that the user has subscribed to
- Selected: Shows blog articles from selected pages/communities (if the user has access)
- Selected + subscribed: Shows blog articles from selected pages/communities and articles from pages/communities that the user has subscribed to.
The last setting is particularly helpful if a large number of blog apps are used. The user is then shown the blog articles that correspond to their interests. What’s more, admins have the option of selecting blog articles from particularly important (company) pages, which should also be shown in the newest blog articles widget. This ensures that the user can keep an eye on information that is relevant to them as well as important company news with the help of the widget.
