  2. Go to posts and add new post
  3. Insert the text
  4. Select the categories  HpNews + Technion Reach or 1 the 2 other sub
  5. At the bottom right click on “Set featured image” and upload and select the image you edited before.
  6. Update and the news item will display in the news page.

If you want the news item to display on the home page:

  1. Do all the above
  2. Also select the category “HPnews1”
  3. In the news item text (in visual mode) select the place you want the text to be cut (in the home page) and click alt+shift+t
  4. Update
  5. Filter the posts for “HPnews1” only and remove the link for all news items to it except the 2 you want at home page


Video on the right column

In order to add a video to the right column of a page like “Technion – At a Glance”:
1. go to youtube and copy the embed code
2. Go to edit the page, switch to “text” and add the code below to the bottom of it.
REMEBER – replace the ” (double quote) character that comes with the code with ‘ (single quote) inside the code like you see below. Note that the code also changes the title in the blue bar (Technion – At a Glance in this case).

<script type="text/javascript">// <![CDATA[
        jQuery('.video212Ttl').text('Technion - At a Glance');
        jQuery('.the-player').append("<iframe width='212' height='119' src='//' frameborder='0' allowfullscreen></iframe>");
// ]]></script>

This code will insert a youtube video to each page that has the widget “aboutRight”

Note: in the pages that contain tabs, like

you paste the code into the first tab text box and not into the main text box of the page content.


Remove the blue bar of the video title in case you do not have a video.
