Un-promote News Page
We need a way to un-promote a news page without having to delete it. An un-promote button would be great. At the moment we use a workaround of changing the promoted state of the page.
Hard to understand this isn't possible. Feels a bit like you can only drive forward with a car and reverse does not exist.

This is VERY MUCH needed! New users are trying things out and don't know what the news page means and then we can't set it back to a normal page and have to recreate it from scratch and delete the news page.
Why is this still not available in the UI?
You used to be able to change the promoted status from 2 to 0, but now that field is greyed out and you can't even do it that way. Please make it so news can be unpromoted without having to delete the page.

I accidentally promoted a page to news today and was surprised there was no way to demote it! All of the existing workarounds don't appear to work because the promoted state field is read only. Please add this feature as soon as possible!
this would be very useful
Yes please add a way to remove News. A third party hack to the default view is not a solution.

We can demote or unpromote news using following list view extension

Having an expiry date is a better option than manually un-promoting!
