How to post a news article to CFA News & Media

To post news you need to be registered with CFA News & Media (formerly CFA Connect). Register for an account.

  1. After logging in, click on Upload news & photos in your My News & Media panel.This will take you to the Add news item page.
  2. Give your news article a title. Keep it short. 
  3. Type the first sentence describing your article into the Introduction text box.
  4. Type the rest of your article into the main content box. If copying from Microsoft Word or Adobe PDF, please remove all formatting first by cutting-and-pasting your text into an empty "notepad" window first. (NOTE: Notepad strips all formatting and makes it friendly plain-text for the website. You can re-format your text once it is pasted into the editor box.)
  5. Select the location your story took place in.
  6. Select the category or categories which your story applies to.
  7. To insert images - see below.
  8. Click SAVE & PUBLISH to make the article live. Click SAVE to save the article but not publish it, if you plan on editing it more later.

  1.  In the article upload screen select the 'Would you like to upload images' checkbox (below the Categories). The Photo Upload option will appear.
  2. Select the Photo Gallery Category your album relates to.
  3. Give the album a title (use the same name as your news article).
  4. Click on Select Files to upload your images. You can also add a short caption to your image here, or do it later on through the "Edit My Photos" Control Panel link.
  5. You can add captions to each image. To use the same caption for all images, enter the caption for image one then click the Copy text from first caption to all captions button.
