Our Pick Enhancements

This is a small plugin to enhance some features of the core Our Picks page. I have always felt that the default Our Pick's Page was a little disorganised and all over the place. 

This little plugin will change the default look to look a bit more appealing and organised.  There are 4 settings to help with this:

  • Header default Image:  Select a default image for promoted items which do do have an image.
  • Header Background colour: Change the background color if you do not want to display a background image.
  • Display Extra info:  Enable or disable showing the 'Picked By' author and date,
  • Cover Picks Columns: Select the number of columns per row for each item.

This will not work with Fosters Our Pick Improvements as they're not compatible with each other due to both modifying the same code.

What's New in Version 1.0.4   See changelog

The enhancements looked great, however, the promoted items in Our Picks stop displaying the thumbnail images on the pages module that displays the latest Our Picks when this plugin is installed 😞 See attachment. I wish I knew what I am doing wrong.

If I disable the plugin, I will see the images. It's a pity that it doesn't work, at least for me 😞 



Response from the author:

I have found the issue, fixed, will do some more testing and upload and update to the market place.

Waiting on approval for the fixed version.
