Hi everyone

I am new to Liferay and now stuck with my news page. I have a news page where I want to add entries with content. What is the right portlet for this? The announcement, blog or what? Is it so that I first have to do some page layout for it as well? And then tweak the portlet based on my own needs or how? I couldn't find any related post on this issue, so I hope you could help. Thanks in advance!

I created the news page using the Asset Publisher, but there is still one question: is it possible to configure the asset publisher to display only the contents of type news and not the rest? Thanks!

Hi Atrisa,

In asset publisher after dragging the portlet rightside select the configuaration settings:

Assert seletion
Assert Type
Display settings


Using these options you can filter based on your reqirement.

Thanks Jaid, I did those too, but unfortunately not working. When I choose e.g a category, it only shows the category header next to the news title and publsih date on the news list.

Will alert and anouncements portlet not satisfy your needs. No need to write a new page layout till the out of the box layouts are enough.

Now that I created a news category for it and applied the category, it is working. Next question: is it possible to change the look of an asset publisher, for example the table that displays the news list and the language of the titles? e.g the title and the publish date are in English, but I want them in French. I set it to French and save it, but the changes bounce back to the default.
