Would anyone know what would cause this issue ? Site news will not enable
As far as I can guess you go to Website → Site news and click “Add news” button. You create new news but don't see it in the storefront? Please make sure this news has active status.
Also try to create news block. Go to Design → Blocks → Add a new block with “Site news” content. Created news should be displayed in this block.
If you do everything right but site news will not enable, probably you use some third-party add-on that disables site news functionality.
