Add article on game page

Each game page has tabs for Box Score, Player Stats, Team Stats, Play by Play, Photos, Videos and Comments. There should be a tab for a News Article for every game so we could attach the story directly to the game. Currently, all news articles are simply tagged for the team and will show up on the News Aggregator but there's no way to tie the article about a game to the game itself.

    This can be done today. Click on the Comments tab on the game while in edit mode. You will see a button called Attach Article. Click on this. You will get a list of all articles associated with the team as well as the tag picker. Click on the check box next to the article(s) you would like to associate with the game (or if you can't find it, open the tag menu and select additional tags).  Now the article will be associated to the game. See the attached screenshots

    Thanks for the info! I never would have looked under that tab to add article.

    I was successful in attaching the article. The list was rather large as all the tags were selected by default. The Select Tag window must have been malfunctioning because it didn’t produce the usual list. This made the list of articles rather long.

    I would still recommend a separate tab from COMMENTS (maybe RECAP or ARTICLE) so that it stands out.. possibly making it the default tab.

    (See https://www.nhl.com/gamecenter/pit-vs-sjs/2016/06/12/2015030416#game=2015030416,game_state=final)

    I would also “reverse” the process so that if an article is attached to a game, you can reach the game stats from the article. Add a small button at the top of the page with the line score (such as your “last game” widget).
