Featuring an Article
On your Scholastica journal website, you may have noticed that one article appears larger than the rest on the homepage. This is what we call the featured article – it's the article that has more visual weight on the page and has the potential to draw a reader's eye.
How does this feature work?
By default, the first article that you publish on Scholastica will show as your featured article. The featured article will not update automatically as you continue to publish content, but you can easily choose the article that you would like to feature at any time! You can only feature one article at a time.
How to feature an article
All updates to your published or unpublished articles can be made by going to
Please note : the following information is only for articles that have been typeset by Scholastica. To feature a PDF article, once you have the article open, you'll check the box next to
Feature this article on the journal's website? and update the article to save your changes.
There are two ways to feature an article :
1. When publishing a typeset article
Since you can only feature an article once it's been published, then if the article is currently unpublished, you can publish and feature it at the same time.
To do so, open the article and click
Publish then choose
Publish and feature on the journal homepage
2. When a typeset article has already been published
If you've already published an article, you can easily feature it on the homepage of your journal site.
To do so, find the article in your articles table and open it. Then, underneath the title click
Feature article on journal’s homepage next, click
Save to update your website's homepage
How to un-feature an article
When you stop featuring an article, it will continue to appear on your journal website, though not at the top of the homepage. It is not necessary to manually un-feature an article prior to featuring a new or different article. Since you can only feature one article at a time, when you choose to feature a different article (using one of the methods above) you will automatically replace the article that was previously featured.
However, there may be situations where un-featuring an article is more convenient. For those situations, there are two ways to un-feature an article:
1. Manually un-feature the article
Open the currently featured article. At the top of the featured article, click
Do not feature article on journal’s homepage then click
Save to update your website's homepage.
Please note : When you manually un-feature an article, by default the most recently published article will become featured. Because of this, you cannot manually un-feature an article if it is the most recently published article. Instead, you'll need to replace the currently featured article (using one of the methods above).
2. Unpublish the article
Open the currently featured article. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click
Please note : When you unpublish a featured article, by default the most recently published article will become featured.
