Most of the following fields are self-explanatory. Here you can enter:

  • title - the title of the publication
  • cover image - this is essentially the featured image. You can take a screenshot of the front page of your publication and upload that. This is displayed on the actual listing page, although it is optional
  • file upload - upload the actual pdf. This is a mandatory field
  • publication about - you can write a short summary of this publication

For the other two fields here, we will explain in more detail.

Publication document type

This allows you to apply a document type for the publication. For example, if you have a series of publications about Government news, you might like to set up a document type of 'Government annoucements'.

You can add a document type [e.g. Company News, Government Annoucements etc] here by clicking the blue + icon.

Publication topic

This allows you to apply a category for the publication. For example, if you have a series of publications about Government news, you might like to set up a topic of 'Budget' or 'Economy' if the topic is about the Budget Day.

You can add a document topic [e.g. MTD, Tax etc] here by clicking the blue + icon. This is useful to show specific document topics on specific pages.
