The news function on Flowshark.com is full of incredible features to help you find what you're looking for. To increase you chance of finding something, we have incorporated a Sub-Categories functionality. This news function will also allow regular members to post articles with media attached (Photos, Videos, Files and Sounds), plus many additional features.
When creating an News, there is the ability to publish the News on the site immediately or choose a later date for publishing. If News is scheduled to be published at a later date, it will be saved as a Draft and then automatically becomes Active when the publish date is reached.
News published in the past are Archived and Categorized by past Months and Years for easy searching.
