How to find your SharePoint pages and news posts

Pages and news posts that you create, save, or publish are stored in the Pages library for your site.

Here’s a simplified illustration of how pages are stored in SharePoint. Your organization probably has multiple sites, and each site has its own pages library. The library may have folders where pages are organized.

How to find news posts in the Pages library

News posts are pages with additional features, which is why they are stored in the Pages library. To distinguish news posts from regular pages, you can add the Promoted State column and sort or filter by the promoted state value of 0 for pages, and 2 for news posts.

  1. In your pages library, go the end of your columns and select +Add column.

  2. Scroll down the options and select Show/hide columns.

  3. Select Promoted State,then click Apply at the top.

  4. Now you'll see a 0 or 2 in the Promoted state column for each page/news post. 0 indicates a page while 2 indicates a news post.
