The news record has four tabs with information. The first tab, General, contains the general information of the news.
The Header field is shown in all views as the news header (1).
It is possible to create three different types of news which can be selected from the drop-down (2). The first, News, is a regular news article with header, subheader and text. The second option, Link internal Page, has the header and subheader, but not text. Instead you can link it to an internal page. The last option, Link external URL, also has the header and subheader and then a link option to an external website.
The news is not hidden when created, so make sure to check the hide box, if you do not wish to publish the news article directly (3).
The use of the Subheader field (4) is varied on the different TYPO3 websites. Some news modules doesn't use it at all and some only in the listview. If used in the single news view it is often displayed in a bolder font above the body text.
The Text field (5) works the same way as in the text element. (img. 2.1.1)
