What is the News Aggregator Element?

Last Updated: Jul 19, 2016 01:10PM CDT
A News Aggregator Page Element allows you to show a selection of news pertaining to a particular portion of your web site (i.e. a team, association, league, etc.). A News Aggregator Page Element can be placed on any page and must have at least one tag selected.
