Does this only modify the "home Article" view or does it also apply to the "Categories" within Pages?

Hi!

No. category and listing template is not included, You can apply the display template on categories tho

however, only display listing, article template "Home article", modified, including blocks for all the styles  

Pages SuperGrid has category, You should check it out :)

Hi Taman,

For some reason, I can get the articles to show when I use it as a Block. I have to have a Database AND the Block added to the page. Otherwise it just disappears. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

Also, for some reason, the images aren't clickable.

Hi! 

The styles can be applied on the main database page 

ACP > Pages > Database > Edit your database > Show records like articles > Article template

then if you visit your main database page you should see the articles with new styles

If you select a fixed height on the plugin settings, some of the styles uses the images as a cover, they are not clickable, its normal

Okay, I understand the image part..

But will I always have to have a Database & a Block on the same page in order to get the Block to show?  Something seems buggy although I think it may be with the way IPB works rather than your plugin. Thanks.

I just want the blocks only to show...

No, there is no bug or anything.

ACP > Pages > Pages add your database to a page first, without adding your database to a page, your database feed block does not work, in fact you cant even add a block feed if your database is not added in a page. thats how pages works, there is no bugs or must add a block to the same database page to work.

Ahhh..okay.  Sorry, still new to pages. That makes sense I guess.  Is there any way to give the Blocks sections with your plugin a visible title?  I want to have different blocks for different categories of my database.

of course, you can create a block and set the configuration settings to show records of a specific category of your database

Ah, I meant showing the title above your block section. I assume I have to add some CSS or something.   I have no titles for my block sections. Anyways, thanks for your help!

Hey,

Is it possible to add a header to the articles block?

Example, I want it to be similar to the attached image but instead have it named 'News'.

The custom block we create for the Homepage. Trying to give that a header, or wondering a way to do so.

Add this somewhere on top of your custom block

<h3 class='ipsWidget_title ipsType_reset'>Header</h3>

I know of that method however is this possible using the provided method of creating the block?

Example. I am trying to add that header to the block created using

Block > Create New Block > Plugin -> Template.

Do I need to edit the template for this?

 

The Plugin block isn't like the other ones where I can simply just add HTML. At least I don't think.

Select "Use as a base for a custom template" and add the header

and add your header

<h3 class='ipsWidget_title ipsType_reset'>{$title}</h3>

.ipsBox[data-blockid="app_cms_Wysiwyg_CODE of block"]
{ border: 0 !important; background: none !important; box-shadow: none !important; }
