  • Enter in the text and pictures for your article
  • Under Parameters (Article), you can alter Author Alias, Created Date, Start Publishing, and Finish Publishing (this will affect when it can be seen and when it will be hidden on the website, leave this alone if there isn’t any time sensitive material)
