Re: Different CSS, and number of entries, on home page

I am fine with that ^, because I just wanted the option for people to return to the original blog style if they prefer it, even with missing features. But I'm finding attempting this with the theme switcher a headache. I'm considering instead having a link to a version with the original template, at...

Re: Different CSS, and number of entries, on home page

Why not just set the number of posts (you can do that in the backend in configuration) to a number of entries teasers that's the same for any page? (I also suspect that a different number of entries would mess with archives, but that's just a vague theory.) The main reason was to make the newest or...

Different CSS, and number of entries, on home page

I'm trying to customise the Clean Blog template to make a loose magazine-style layout. I want to have a different look on the home page than subsequent pages. Specifically, the home page would have 7 post previews, with the most recent larger than the others. On the following pages, I'd have 9 evenl...

Re: 'Show Entries in sidebar' plugin - random order?

Hello! No questions to ask, I just thought I might show you what I did with this plugin and why I was asking lots of strange, specific questions! I've got 2 installations of the 'Show Entries in sidebar' plugin - one that shows the latest entry from a particular category in the sidebar of the main p...

Re: Check if entry has particular category

Sorry, I'm trying my best to learn as I go, but I'm a little lost here. I'm looking at examples of the code you gave me in my template and think I understand how it works. But I don't understand where/how I specify a category name. If it helps, every entry in this category strictly only has this cat...

Check if entry has particular category

I'm hoping to add a prefix to the title of entries that are assigned to a particular category. I have a separate template for this category, so it's no problem adding this to the category page or in a single entry view. But I'd like the prefix text to also show up in the archives/search results in t...

Re: Hide sidebar section on particular pages?

Thank you! I managed to hide the Linklist plugin on my Links page using: {if $item.class == "serendipity_plugin_linklist" && $staticpage_pagetitle == "Links"} <!-- hide linklist --> {else} [my sidebar code here] {/if} ETA: If I wanted to hide other plugins on different pages, would I just use {else ...

Re: Hide sidebar section on particular pages?

Not sure if I understand what you mean by that, but if you're thinking of copying a plugin like copying a theme (with a changed name), I'm not sure if that would work. (But I never thought of trying that, either.) I have done it before following advice on here. It works, the only issue is if there ...

Re: Hide sidebar section on particular pages?

I do have a few html nuggets, so I guess that's out! If you prefer an easy solution, I would suggest to just replace the sidebar blogroll with a link to the blogroll page. :) I've decided this is best, as the Blogroll made the sidebar look too crowded. I was also hoping to hide another html nugget o...

Hide sidebar section on particular pages?

I was wondering if there is a way to hide a sidebar section on specific pages. For example, I have a Blogroll page, and a blogroll sidebar widget (using html_nugget), and I'd like the sidebar blogroll to be hidden only when viewing the Blogroll page.

Re: 'Show Entries in sidebar' plugin - random order?

Yep, it's working fine. I just meant I deleted 'timestamp DESC' on the plugin configuration page, where it was autofilling that.

Re: $view not to working with serendipity_event_customarchiv

Did you actually try to disable the customarchive plugin and does your template check on $view then work? Yes, I did a fresh install (2.1.1) of Serendipity and added the plugins once at a time until the problem occurred. Then I disabled all but customarchive. Then I disabled and reenabled customarc...

$view not working with serendipity_event_customarchive

I was trying to add {if $view == 'entry'} to a template and not getting the results I expected. After looking at this thread , I decided to test if it might be a plugin and found the culprit was serendipity_event_customarchive. How can I possibly remedy this without disabling this plugin? I tried ad...

Re: 'Show Entries in sidebar' plugin - random order?

It seems to have been to do with the Category Templates plugin. It was interfering with randomising even if I set the showentries plugin to a Category I hadn't applied any of the categorytemplates settings to.I had to uninstall it, remove it from the database, and when saving the configuration for c...
