How to post a daily newscast on the web

At the top of the Video Newscasts page, we have a section where the newscast is display for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Every night, when the newscast finishes uploading to YouTube, someone will have to update the block for the appropriate day. This person should be given at least Editor status in WordPress, and should have undergone basic PageBuilder training.

There are two parts to this job: Updating the WordPress post and updating the Video page in PageBuilder.

WordPress:
When the YouTube link is ready, you will need to update the post for the correct day. Shortcut links are here (you’ll have to log into WordPress if you aren’t already):

Monday:
https://usc-wp.partner.nile.works/wp-admin/post.php?post=3776&action=edit

Tuesday:
https://usc-wp.partner.nile.works/wp-admin/post.php?post=3778&action=edit

Wednesday:
https://usc-wp.partner.nile.works/wp-admin/post.php?post=3780&action=edit

Thursday:
https://usc-wp.partner.nile.works/wp-admin/post.php?post=3782&action=edit

All you have to do is remove whatever video is already embedded in the editor and replace it with the correct YouTube link for that day (the embed will be automatic if you just paste the link in the editing box).

When you’re done with that, on to PageBuilder and see next steps here.
