It should be up to six on desktop for all feeds. 

I should learn to count :biggrin: Yes, there are 6 on desktop and 3 on phone. 

And another suggestion: can we have an image in block clickable? Right now only titles have a link to the entry, I would rather want to click on images to open the linked record. :rolleyes:

When the image type is set to auto, it still loads what would be the larger images on desktop in full size on mobile. Is it possible to always display just the thumbnails on mobile screens?

In theory, yes, but I’m not gonna do that. A) it would double the amount of code to maintain. B) There are several load-time saving measures included already. C) a higher-res image isn’t necessarily too big on mobile devices, since the screen resolutions are getting higher and higher on mobile.

I get this error when I try to install core_templates.xml

They are not installed in the plugin section. Please follow the instructions in the PDF.

Thanks! I was installing the wrong plugin. 

I have another question however, there isnt a record-template.xml. Is the one to use core_templates.xml? When I use this one my image attachments dont show up on the record. 

Disregard, I figured it out.

Good evening,

Im trying to figure out why clicking a record doesnt produce a similar result to how it behaves in the demo. 

In the demo, the superblock disappears after a record is clicked and a large form image in the article emerges with the article. On my site, the superblock remains and I have to scroll down to a small form image on the side of the article I clicked on. -

SuperBlocks is a block template. Blocks only create a feed of items and link to it. They don’t define what happens after the click.

That page that opens on the demo is using the SuperGrid product, which is assigned to the article database.

Question, but first off I want to say GREAT feature. Thank you for building this. I followed your instructions and they were simple. Turned my homepage into something really special.

www.AngelsWin.com

My question is two fold: 

First on mobile, is there a way to add the red bar blocks that are present for the standard blocks (not super blocks) on the mobile view? They're not there on mobile devices, only shows up on desktop.

Our Picks is the standard block that shows the red bar across to illustrate the area below.

Second question is, is there a way to make the default purple color from the Super Blocks into the color of my website's theme, the same color as the standard blocks?

Thanks so much!

@opentype

Can I use your front page block to replace mine? Would it work with side bars? Can u pls confirm? Thank you.

I don’t know how this front page is created. 
You can add SuperBlocks in any drag-and-drop content areas except the sidebars. But it works next to the sidebar if you have one on the page.

Hello,

My apologies if I'm wasting your time, as I'm not even sure if this issue is relevant to Pages Super Blocks or to IPS. Building the page I can see a row with 2 columns instead of one. How I can duplicate a row like this but in another position? I'm saying it because as I can see I can design more rows like this but only one below the other while I want something:

1 row - 1 column

1 row - 2 columns

1 row - 1 column

1 row - 2 columns

Thank you

Chris

SuperBlocks is only meant to to run in the full-width column with the optional sidebar next to it or not. See this post for a visual aid. 
The number of columns within the SuperBlocks depend on the number of records in the feed.

Thank you, I'm aware of this as I've read the instructions. Maybe I was used wrong words. Have to use "placeholders" and not "columns".

I see. That’s impossible at this time in Pages.

Can you please implement this? I have changed the SuperBlocks template to make it possible:

{{if $items[0]['image']}}<div onclick="location.href='{$items[0]['url']}';" class="SuperBlocks_thumbImage SuperBlocks_thumbImage_low" style="cursor:pointer;background-image:url('{file="$items[0]['image']" extension="$items[0]['extension']"}')"></div>{{endif}}

But the change makes me not upgradable :sad: 

I can see that users try to click on image first, when I show them the project. It would be more intuitive to have the image as link too. Thank you!

Please forgive me if this has already been asked, I looked through all 10 pages here and did not see a similar question.
Would it be possible to have the images in the blocks be clickable and linked to their original content in the future? Just as they are with the Super Grid.
