- attach news archive view

Choose a site you want to install the add-on to from the dashboard. Then go to Apps -> Install app and click Install next to News app.
Redeploy the site.
Run pip install aldryn-news.
Add below apps to INSTALLED_APPS:
INSTALLED_APPS = [ … 'taggit', 'aldryn_news', 'aldryn_search', 'django_select2', 'djangocms_text_ckeditor', 'easy_thumbnails', 'filer', 'hvad', 'haystack', # for search … ]
You can add news in the admin interface now. Search for the label Aldryn_News.
In order to display them, create a CMS page and install the app there (choose News from the Advanced Settings -> Application dropdown).
Now redeploy the site again.
The above CMS site has become a news archive view.
Latest News Entries plugin lets you list n most frequent news filtered by tags.
If you want the news entries to be searchable, be sure to install aldryn-search and its dependencies. Your entries will be searchable using django-haystack.
You can turn it this behavior off by setting ALDRYN_NEWS_SEARCH = False in your django settings.
