You can use nm_post_image_url() with optional parameters width, height, crop (see NM template tags (since 3.0))

Example (insert in your template's <head> section):
Code:
<?php if (nm_post_has_image()) { ?>
<meta property="og:image" content="<?php nm_post_image_url(640,480,1); ?>">
<?php } ?>

You can:

- use "invisible tags" (prefix tags with an underscore, like _mytag)

and/or

- Exclude posts by tag:
Code:
define('NMDEFAULTEXCLUDETAGGED', 'mytag1,mytag2,mytag3');
(insert in gsconfig)

Hello, Carlos!

When this code is inserted directly in template everything works just fine. But when I'm trying to use this as a component there is no meta description in the page source code...

The component code:

Code:
<?php
$arr = array(
"сравнение" => "Метаописание для тега сравнение",
"вывески" => "Метаописание для тега вывески",
);
if (nm_is_tag()) foreach ($arr as $t=>$m) if (nm_is_tag($t)) {$metad=$m; break;}
?>


The component in template:

Code:
<head>
    //some code here

    <?php get_component('tagsmeta'); ?>
        
    <?php nm_get_header(); ?>

    //some code here

</head>

What am I doing wrong? Smile

To make it work in a component, insert this:

Code:
global $metad;

just after the <?php tag.

Hello!

The NM setting is set Enable post image -> Yes.

If I do not select an image when creating new news - is there a way to set the default image, but only in the sidebar. I use the following code:

PHP Code:
<?php nm_custom_display_recent(
'<div class="my_recent_{{ post_number }}" style="padding:15px 0; border-bottom:solid #ddd 1px;">
    <h2><a href="{{ post_link }}">{{ post_title }}</a></h2>
        <p><a href="{{ post_link }}">{{ post_image }}</a></p>
        <span class="my_excerpt">{{ post_excerpt }}</span>
</div>'
);?>

Thank you,

Thanks, that's it.

I'd love to be able to customize News Manager (updated) to use it for a What's-on, or Coming Events page. So I'm wondering if it is possible to customise the published date field so that it would be my event date. That would mean I'd have to have NM display future dated posts.

All advice welcome please, or has anything similar been done before?

You can do it with the NM Addons plugin. An example here:

Thank you Carlos. Absolutely brilliant, just what I needed. Please can you let me have code to use for your 'past events' example? Thanks again.

Just insert a link to the 'events' (or whatever) tag page:
example.com/newspage/tag/events
or
example.com/newspage/?tag=events
or... (others, depending on your GS and NM permalink setup)

Thanks Carlos. Got it.
Back to the original question of creating a future events list ( I'm putting mine inside another page via DynPages), I've just noticed that any events dated today don't appear with the future events. Is it possible to get then to show, or any other way to just show toda's seperately?
Reply
You can set their time to 23:59, so that they are future posts (until 00:00 is reached).
Reply
I'll add an option to display today's posts.

Thanks Carlos, you're a star. your 23:59 trick worked a treat, but this will be even better.

Is there a way to display the meta description of posts with nm_custom_display_recent like


PHP Code:
nm_custom_display_recent("Title: {{ post_title }}<br>Description: {{ post_metad }}");

Not currently, but I'll add support for that.
