ocPortal shows no News

I have added news items and can view them in the admin area but when I visit the front page it says no news. I am completely lost.

Thanks for posting on here. If you could post a screenshot of the news form so we can see your exact settings (when you go edit the news), and confirm that the news block was placed for you (i.e. no custom settings), it will make things easier for someone to answer.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Ah, there we go. You have the main_forum_news block, rather than the main_news block. The forum news draws news from the forum and is designed for people who like to post news on the forum as topics.

The red button in the editor toolbar adds a new block.

You can delete the old one by single clicking on it and pressing delete.
