Editors and managers can determine the specific placement of stories on home and hub pages.
After adding a story to a group in the story editor, you may have a few options for determining how the story will be placed on the page upon publishing.
All stories are added automatically to the Front Page group. This determines publication to the home page.
Publish to a specific slot on a home or hub page
To publish a story into a specific spot on your home or a hub page, go to the groups you’ve added in the Tags section of the Compose screen. There will be a dropdown menu of placement options next to home and hub pages you’ve added. If there isn’t a dropdown, that means that it’s a basic group and will publish automatically in reverse chronological order.
Otherwise, the following applies:
If you have author permissions, you’ll have one placement option called Unpinned Reverse Chron, usually the default. This will publish your story to the first unpinned slot on the page. That means if you are publishing to the home page, and the first three stories there have been pinned into place, then your story will appear in the fourth slot.
If you have editor or manager permissions, you can select any numbered placement slot on the home or hub page.
If a placement slot already has a story pinned there, this new story will take the slot instead, and the old story will be bumped down to the next available slot.
When you want to avoid publishing on the homepage
Select Don’t place if you’d prefer the story not appear on the home or hub page upon publishing. This sends it into a story queue for that page, where editors can then choose which stories to publish directly on the home or hub pages.
