Use Case: Browse community news



Visitors to a CMF Site will typically return to the site after an initial visit only if the site's content was interesting or valuable to them. They will return often to the site only if they perceive that this interesting and valuable content is being frequently updated. This use case deals with the most common "dynamic" feature of a CMF Site: its list of published News Items.


  1. Select the news link from the navigation bar. The system will display the ten most recent News Items, sorted in descending date order. If there are more than ten published News Items, the system will display a link to the next batch at the bottom of the page.
  2. Navigate between batches of News Items by clicking the "10 older artcles" and "10 newer articles" links.
