See how to add categories to your Stories to help visitors find relevant content

 
 

Classifying your stories in categories can help visitors easily find content that they are interested in. If this feature is not turned on for your account and you want to learn more about it, please check our Plans & Pricing page or start a chat with us.

 

Creating a set of categories for your newsrooms 

If you have more than one active newsroom, please note that categories are not shared across newsrooms and must be added in each individual newsrooms' settings. 

💡 Pro Tip ​
Although our system allows you to create unlimited categories, it is recommended that you should agree with your team internally on a set of categories that you should use for each newsroom so that you can keep your categories tidy and clean to help visitors locate information that they are interested in.

 

How to add categories

1) Access your Newsroom settings page, and click on Categories

 
 

 

2) Set up your categories in different languages (not mandatory)

 
 

 

3) Next to each category, you can see which language(s) the category is available in 

 
 

 

4) Drag and rearrange your categories in the order you wish for them to be displayed

 

☝️

The reordering newsroom categories features is only available for newsrooms using the Bea, Greta, Marcel or Lena themes. Newsrooms on legacy themes will not be able to reorder their categories

 

5) Edit your categories any time by clicking the ••• button then Edit category ​ 

 
 

 

Adding categories to your stories 

When creating a story, you'll see the your categories listed on the left sidebar. Simply click on the category in which you wish to include your story and once the story is published, it can be found under that selected category on your public newsroom. See below for how categories appear on your newsrooms.

 
 

 

How categories are displayed on your newsrooms

All categories can be found under the category dropdown menu in a newsroom's navigation bar, along with each category's description.

Once clicked, every category has a dedicated URL, such as news.vent-airlines.com/category/company-news or news.vent-airlines.com/category/travel-offers.

 
 

Every published story belonging to a category will also have the category name displayed on the story card. These category tags on story cards are clickable.
