I would suggest that you create custom fields for News items
by going to Content -> News
and click on the Custom Fields for news
link in the right side of the page. Here is a short demonstration video
about creating custom fields for News. You can also check this article
from the Sitefinity documentation for additional information.
When created this way, the custom fields will appear under the CustomFieldsSection
in the the NewsBackendEdit, NewsBackendInsert
views located in Administration -> Settings -> Advanced -> News -> Controls -> NewsBackend -> Views
. A new column in the sf_news_items
table in the database will also be created to store the data entered for the custom field.
If you create the custom field directly from the Administration -> Settings -> Advanced -> News -> Controls -> NewsBackend -> Views,
the new custom field will appear when creating and editing the news item and you will be able to enter data for the custom field but Sitefinity will not create a column in the database to store the data and this is why the data will not be saved.
