How do I replace staff images?
First: Resize your replacement image to be 172 x 228 pixels (for most sites) and rename to be the exact same file name. [to find the image name and file path, right click on the image as you see it on the website, click "Copy Image Location" and then paste that link into the URL of a new tab in your browser.]
Second: replace the image in the image manager. If the file path and name are identical (note case sensitive), you should not have to edit the article in which the picture resides.
To delete a picture in the image manager, you have to click within the box around the picture, but not the image itself to select it. And then you can click the delete button in the upper right-hand corner.You can have two images with identical file names in the same folder in the image manager.

Should I archive articles?
Archiving articles that are expired would be an okay practice. You won't see them (at first) in the article manager. but you can retrieve them. Archived articles can be viewed by clicking archived from the Select Status Filter in the article manager. See image.
***If you archive published rotator or headline articles, they will still appear in the rotator or headline. Expired archived articles will not appear in the rotator. Archived articles can be re-published or trashed, same as other articles.
