Hiding the New Article icon from the Content Station 9 Home screen
One of the ways of creating a new article in Content Station is by double-clicking the New Article icon on the Home screen.
Figure: The Create New Article icon on the Home screen.
However, this will create a stand-alone article which is not associated with any Dossier. It will also contain default article components and default styles for formatting the text, both of which may not be suitable for the Publication Channel in which the article is eventually used.
A more typical workflow is to create a new article by instantiating a Dossier template that contains an article that has been set up especially for the Publication Channel in which the article is going to be used.
To prevent Content Station users from creating a stand-alone article by using the Create New Article icon on the Home screen, the icon can be hidden:
- File: configserver.php
- Name of option: ContentStationHideGlobalNewArticle
- Location: SERVERFEATURES list
