Feature slider using blog posts

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to program a feature slider after the fact that will pull information from the blog that is already developed? Every blog post has featured images already. I'd like for the feature slider to show the featured image and the first 50 words of the post and be clickable to the post. Is this possible? And, if so, how? Or do I have to manually create a feature for every single blog post?

Hi,

 

Are you using the Feature Slider from Framework in DMS? 

 

I understand a new slider that is being built for DMS will allow you to select from posts, and optionally by category.

Right now, my client is in the PageLines framework still. I haven't converted her to DMS because she is mid-contract with me. So, no, I am not using the Feature Slider from Framework in DMS.

I think I've figured this out after playing around. I can't figure out how to close this topic or delete it. Please consider this topic resolved.

Okay, you posted your question in DMS support, not in Framework support, thus my confusion.

 

Framework Features can be set up to include Sliders from post, by category.  I recommend creating a new category, and applying the posts to that category.

 

The slides include the feature image, text from the post's excerpt field, and the title is the post title. This can be very easy to do, to keep a rotating slider up to date with your posts.

 

I'll mark the post resolved for you.

      Hi Everyone,
       
      I am having issues with being able to post to my blog with platform 5. Currently when i click publish, it just shows the homepage of MoonBodySoul.com. That is until i open the page editor and change the scope from "All of type: Posts" to "Current Page Only". Then I have to re-insert the menu header as well. This seems like a really dumb process. In past versions of pagelines, I could just post a blog and the menu would be there and there would be no formatting issues. What can I do to fix this?

      How do you move the thumbnail on a blog post?  I need the thumbnails for the blogroll page, but they show up at the top of the actual post page.  Normally, this would be fine, but I've been requested to put it under the blog title.  Any suggestions?
      Thanks.

      My client is asking for a new blog layout similar to the one found here:  http://blog.perkinswill.com/pokemon-augmented-reality-and-the-future-of-urban-design/ 
      They have a splashy full-width background image overlaid with part of the blog and one sidebar.  The navigation arrows send you to the next post.
      Does anyone know if this is even possible using Framework 5?  If so, can you send me some advice on how to get here?
      Totally stuck!
      Thanks.

      Hi there!
      I am using "Pins" for my blog now and I have some problems with the big style of the pins.
      I'd like to have smaller pins, how is it possible to make them smaller?
