I created an ‘announcements’ category for this site. When staff update the site, they can put posts in the announcements category. If they do, an excerpt from that post displays on the homepage showing the beginning of the announcement.
This makes adding announcements to the site convenient, and it’s really easy for site visitor’s to find the announcements. The best part is that the most recent announcement automatically posts to the homepage, so it’s one less thing you need to worry about updating.
There’s also a page for the pastor’s sermons that works in a similar way. The sermon’s page shows a list of sermons with excerpts so that users can quickly skim the content to find the one they want.
These strategies can be applied to any type of category you’d like to create. Fun stuff!
