The NewsFlash page contains a text box with an advanced formatting toolbar, just like an Enhanced Text page.  However, when your web is marked as Paid, the NewsFlash page includes an additional feature.  You can use the page to create an email distribution list, and send a message alerting the list's subscribers to check the NewsFlash page for an important announcement.

Click here for instructions on updating the NewsFlash page and maintaining the email distribution lists.

Each of the 7 NewsFlash pages can be used to create its own unique email distribution list.  You can also add a button to the page to allow others to add their own email addresses to that page's email list.

To add a NewsFlash page to your site, go to your Update Index and click the Add New Page button.
