So the new News page is here, but what did actually change?
I'm finally making use of the given tools within the CMS and using a few extensions I can finally run a blog-like page without much of a hassle. Before this, all news were basically written into the HTML code of the News page. This solution was supposed to be only temporary, yet lasted for much longer than I liked. It was not only incredible inflexible, but also very hard to read in code when trying to add new News. Linking to the individual snippets was done through so called ancors, but now I can just directly link each article.
I hope this is a welcomed change, because it surely is for me.
