Additional notes from our meeting on Jan. 19/2022:

  • For now, we will display the three most recent news items, and truncate each news item (perhaps with a ...?) so that they all fit within a reasonable amount of space. In the future, we may consider a more clever way of displaying relevant news items, and using a short description instead of merely truncating the content.
  • The news cards on the home page should have a "Learn more" link that can be clicked on, similar to the event cards. The "Learn more" should link to a page that contains a single news item, similar to how we have pages that contain a single event (eg. https://csclub.uwaterloo.ca/events/2022/winter/Bootamp-Mock-Interviews/). This will probably require doing some stuff with dynamic routes, see https://nextjs.org/docs/routing/dynamic-routes for some information and/or just take a look at what we have already done for events.
  • We will not submit a formal design request for this feature, however please send a screenshot in the ~website-design channel on Mattermost once the frontend has been implemented, in order to get feedback from the Design team. There was also some discussion about this topic previously in this channel - it may be helpful to take a look at that thread.
