STEP THREE: Set Up Your Online Student Newspaper Staff

How to Set Up Your Student Newspaper Staff

Your Student News Support Staff , Online School Newspaper Support  

Configure YourStudentNews Online Newspaper









1) Click on the Users link on the navigation menu of your online newspaper site administration portal.



From this page, you can add, edit and delete users from your system.


Important: This is for your online student newspaper staff whom you want to be able to access your administration portal.

This is not for users / readers in general. The Users that you define here will be given some level of access to your site administration portal - so, be careful how you assign access rights. 

Some students / schools opt to use pen names rather than real names.

You can also set up titles for each student staff member such as Senior Editor, Reporter, Columnist, etc.


2) Once you have added a user, you need to define the level of permissions for that user. To make it quick and easy, we have created a Student Template and a Teacher/Adviser Template (super user).  Click the appropriate link.






Student accounts are commonly restricted to only publishing in the Next Issue (behind the scenes and not yet published). Generally, only Teachers / Advisers are granted access to the Current Issue (live and viewable by the public).

You will generally only want one user to have full access rights (super user) - especially configuration access. The super user is generally the teacher / parent adviser.  

Users may also be restricted to a single Section of your online student newspaper.

A Submit Article function is available for readers to submit material without needing to login to the system.  This function is turned off by default.  If you would like this to be enabled, please contact us by email.
