definately entries available

I have lots coming up as per here - https://www.walkingfootball.com/walking-football-tournaments-events/

but cannot get the block to show on https://www.walkingfootball.com/superblocks/

I don’t know. I can look at it in your ACP, but the block filters (in this case event categories) shouldn’t cause any problems. SuperBlocks is just styling. It takes whatever entries the the Pages blocks provide. Does it show if you assign the stock template, not the SuperBlocks template?

BTW what is the background colour you use for these superblocks - I would like to know the hex so i can match other widets background colours

I do not assign colors. I just use the theme CSS classes for “area background light” and so on.

Hi,

I really like this well done.

One suggestion / feature request is to help users use the site as easy as possible.

It would be really good if you could hyperlink the photos and text instead of just the titles.

From a userability report I read somewhere this is why the daily mail for example do this and was one of the reasons they were once (no idea about now) the number 1 online newspaper in the UK

IE this is how they do it - http://www.dailymail.co.uk/home/index.html

Express do the same - https://www.express.co.uk/

Infact looks like daily mail do photos and long titles where express also do the text which is the preferential option.

I think if this can be done you have a killer app for any community as it really does look lovely, it would just be good for people who read online newspapers to have the same functionality and remove any confusion

is the calendar working as intended in this screenshot?

Yes. The text block for entries without images is long to fill the space that will be occupied if other entries have images. Or if all entries have enough text it will also look fine of course. A single entry doesn’t take other entries into account though. That would get way too complex.

I just bought and installed the plugin. I will use it for blogs.

Can you please add an option to use thumbnails with reduced file size for the images? 

At the moment the full picture ist used and my users often use big files that do not fit for my homepage.

Also it would be great if the blog homepage badge would be a clickable link (similar forum links etc.).

Reluctant to ask for help again but I added everything correctly ( I think)

I created a block for downloads files feed using the super block template.

First thing I noticed is that the preview looked the same as the default. I figured I would drop the block in anyway, Here is what it shows me.
