How To Post News

Hello all news posters,

 

There are 2 ways to post news on EHW, we will cover the two options below:

 

 

Posting news traditionally

 

1. When posting a news article please be sure to use the news source prefix drop down to select an appropriate news source, if you cannot find the right one then please add the source in your thread title. For this example we will use TechRadar:

 

[TECHRADAR]*Insert Thread Title*

 

Where possible the thread title should be the same as the source article, please do not make up your own as this can alter the context of the article. You can quote a short excerpt of the news source so people can get a preview, but be sure to link the source underneath. See an example below

 

Microsoft retracted the KB4524244 security update today, February 15, 2020, from Windows Update after confirming user reports about freezes, boot problems, and installation issues since it was released on February 11.

 

Update KB4524244 was made available for Windows 10 systems with versions between versions 1607 and 1909. It ensures that the system freezes during installation and that booting is no longer possible. In the statement, Microsoft confirmed that the update is being removed and will not be re-issued. At least until it is fixed.

 

Source

 

 

Using the ''Post Link" Feature

 

2. Use the ''Post Link'' feature in the editor, this will insert the news article into the editor with a link to the source for you while quoting some of the news title and allowing you to select an image taken from the article. See the image process to do this below.

 

Clink on the ''Post Link'' button as indicated by the red box, this will open a link insertion field, again as indicated by the red box. Paste your link in here and click ''Add Link''
