In Beta: News Filter on search.umn.edu

May 22, 2017

The University Relations digital communications team has been working on a News filter for search.umn.edu. We've customized the results to display images, dates, and sources in the result list, with diferent layouts for mobile and desktop.

Here is the link to the test site.

News results are currently drawing from the Twin Cities homesite and College of Liberal Arts, but the idea is to expand as more units want to come aboard.

It's still in development, so more tweaks are on the way. We're currently able to pull in content from Drupal sites and will expand to Worpress as we continue development.

If your unit is interested in getting news items in the News filter, email urweb@umn.edu and read the documentation on implementing it.
