  1. I just realized... even if I pulled the title and meta-description..... it still wouldn't pull the image. At the end of the day, I'm just trying to figure out a way to send a decent looking newsletter that looks good and includes links to a group of articles from the site. That's all completely automated.
  2. I'm trying to create an automated daily newsletter via Mailchimp from my RSS feeds. The problem I'm facing is that IPB's RSS feeds pull the entire article into the feed, instead of a limited amount of content. Is there a way to alter the RSS feed to only pull the meta description? This would allow me to show an article title and meta-description on the newsletter - as opposed to the title and entire article. Sidenote: I would simply use the title and the article image, however, the way it's setup now, I have to have the content showing in order to pull the image... so it's essentially not an option for me.
  3. For further clarification - I'm wanting to customize what get's automatically posted to the forums as a new topic, when one of my writers submits a new record (article) to the IP.Pages app.
  4. There is a basic option to create a new topic in the forums, every time a new record is added to the database. By default, the field labeled "content" in the database is the only field that is posted into the new topic on the forums. How would I go about deciding which record fields show up in the forum post? For example, I'd love for the forum topic to include only the database/record field called "teaser" with the read more link - as opposed to the fully story.
  5. Surely someone knows what this guide is saying...
  6. Know I'm wondering if this is so easy, that I'm getting ignored. Or if this is extremely complex and too difficult to work through. With this being mentioned in the article above, I would think this would be something that's more/less built into the system. After-all, this has more or less become a standard for all news websites. I'd love to get this implemented, as I'm sure many others would as well. If anyone has time to explain how to go about this, I'd be very grateful.
  7. How easy is this to implement? I've found this link that talks about it, https://community.invisionpower.com/4guides/themes-and-customizations/javascript-framework/using-ui-widgets/ipsuiinfinitescroll-r47/ but I guess it's a little over my head as far as how to actually implement it. I'd love to implement this at the bottom of an article, displaying other articles in the same database category. Just not sure how to go about it.
  8. I guess it would need to be called in one of the theme's HTML files... but what is the location of the new CSS file I created?
  9. I created a new database template. But, there's some stylistic things on that page that I'd like to do with CSS. I noticed that inside of Templates there is a CSS tab, and no files inside. I created a CSS file there. How would I go about assigning that particular CSS file to my new database template, or that file to specific divs?
  10. That makes too much sense. Thanks @opentype - definitely nice to have a second eye on things.
  11. {$record->customFieldDisplayByKey('2015', 'display')|raw} <br> {$record->customFieldDisplayByKey('2014', 'display')|raw} <br> {$record->customFieldDisplayByKey('2013', 'display')|raw} <br> {$record->customFieldDisplayByKey('2012', 'display')|raw} <br> {$record->customFieldDisplayByKey('2011', 'display')|raw} This is what I have showing on the template ^^^ Then below is what I have on the "Display Custom Format" inside the database field settings... {{if $formValue}}<b>{$label}:</b> {$value}{{endif}} - this is the same for each field listed above, (2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011)
  12. Though this does seem to work - it still leaves a space (<br>) even though there is no data displayed. Is there a way to eliminate it?
