Article Series, Categories and Authors

The series, categories, and author information for your articles can help to build your sermon library, as well as assist users when looking for specific sermons.

To manage these details, go to Content > Articles within your Amplify Website dashboard.

Under the Series tab, the default list will display your existing series, the number of sermons in each one, the date range, and the option to select one series as the "current series". 

To add a new sermon series, select the Add New Series button at the top right.

  • Name: Give your series a Name (This is the only required field).
  • Keywords: Feel free to add keywords related to the article series.
  • Summary: You can enter a description of your series. This information is useful to help search engines find your content. 
  • Image: You can upload a graphic related to your series.

Click the Save button when you are finished adding all of the series details.


Categories are helpful to organize your articles and provide an easy way for users to navigate your article library. The article layout widget includes a filter bar so users can filter your articles by categories.

Under the Categories tab, all existing categories will display and you can select the "Add New Category" button to create a new one. The parent category dropdown allows you to nest categories to create sub-categories. This can be used to create separate category lists for different uses of articles (i.e.: resources, stories, and volunteer opportunities).


This tab is used to manage your list of authors. The default list will display your existing author names, the number of articles assigned, and if the author is linked to a member account. 

To create a new author, click the Add New Author button at the top right.

  • Fill in the author's first and last name (Both of these fields are required).
  • Feel free to add any additional information about the author that you would like to in the additional info text area.
  • If the author has a member account in the People module, you can link them in the dropdown next to link to user field.

Click the Done button when you are finished adding all of the author details.

Note: If you'd like for users to be able to contact the author (such as for volunteer opportunities), you will need to link the author with a member account. This will make the email address available with the article details.
