News and social media

See examples of news and Twitter feeds.

Homepage feeds

News and Twitter feeds usually appear in two columns on the homepage of a section of our website. These components should only be used by members of the Digital Content and Digital Development teams, or those that have had training in their use.


Displaying news

News should only be displayed through the Broadcast system. Stories will then appear on the relevant feeds.

Do not create static web pages for individual news stories.

Stand alone Broadcast feeds

Stand alone broadcast feeds can also be added to some page types. If you are unsure if this is suitable for your page, please check in with DCM.

  • channel="" will set the channel to display
  • type="" will set whether this is a news or events feed
  • perPage="" will set the number of items that are loaded on to the page
  • defaultTemplate="" will set the template of the site. Set either: studenthub, staffhub or list (external template)
  • limit="" will limit the number of results shown on the page
  • fullLink="" will set the page where the feed will open items when selected. This parameter is only needed if there is other content on the page. If the full feed already exists on another page you may use the URL to that page as the fullLink parameter. If the feed does not exist on another page, a new page must be created that contains only a broadcast feed. For this new page, the same embed code can be used, just removing this fullLink paramter. The url to this new page will be used to set the fullLink parameter in the original feed.
  • tags= will set whether this feed uses tags to filter the results. If you do not know if the channel uses tags then leave this as it is
