Entry Locking

Entry locking is a way of permanently displaying an announcement at the top of a news list (does not affect the news archive or calendar items). The number of entries that can be locked at the same time is one less than the number of entries displayed by the SSI. This ensures that the newest entry is always displayed.

To lock or unlock an announcement:

  1. Log in to the administration utility at http://<domain name>/Admin/login/.
  2. Click on News and Announcements.
  3. Click on Edit in the navigation menu.
  4. Click the Lock or Unlock icon (Lock/Unlock) of the entry you wish to lock/unlock.
