News Manager (updated)
(2017-08-22, 05:33:41)carpman Wrote: Is it possible to have different template files for different kinds of posts, as per:
single templateFile template-blog-post.php

But perhaps determined by tag, so for example, for image based posts I'd like to use one kind of template, for text based posts another. So I'd like to have a tag "image" and a tag "text" and depending which tag the post has, a different template file is used.

Something like this in custom settings?
single templateFile tag="text" template-blog-post-text.php
single templateFile tag="image" template-blog-post-image.php

Is this possible currently?
I'm not bothered about method (as per above), just whether this can be done at present.

Many thanks,
C.

Create a new template file (e.g. template-blog-single.php) with this contents:
PHP Code:
<?php if(!defined('IN_GS')){ die('you cannot load this page directly.'); }

function 
custom_include_template($temp) {
  global 
$TEMPLATE;
  
$file GSTHEMESPATH.$TEMPLATE.'/'.$temp;
  if (
file_exists($file)) include $file;
}

if (
nm_post_has_tag('text')) {
  
custom_include_template('template-blog-post-text.php');
} elseif (
nm_post_has_tag('image')) {
  
custom_include_template('template-blog-post-image.php');
} else {
  
custom_include_template('template-blog-post.php');
}

// end 

Now in NM Custom Settings, select it with:
Code:
single templateFile template-blog-single.php

PS I suggest you use the .inc.php extension instead of just .php for these "special templates" so that they cannot be selected for normal pages by your users.

Here is my code without the feature image, where should I be inserting it?

You can use the {{ post_image }} or {{ post_image_url}} placeholders (see NM Addons documentation) wherever you need it in your code. Perhaps before the <h3>, or after the <br />, or after the excerpt... It depends on what you need, but you'll probably have to use css too...

Enter this in NM Custom Settings:

single imageSize full

Thanks Carlos !!!!! That worked a treat. It's allowed me to a) use different header images, fonts etc .. for different kinds of posts, but more importantly I no longer need to run media based js (say for the audio player) on simple text posts.

You can see it in action here:

Thanks again! It's made a big difference.  Big Grin

I have a really dumbass question to ask (so please feel free to smack me round the head with your answer) - but I was going through the documentation and couldn't find out how to include a link within a "single post" to jump to next post (later or more recent) thus bypassing returning to the main blog page (list of posts).

I'm certain I'm missing something but the only older/newer link I could find is under page navigation: navOldNew
and what I'm after is the same kind of thing but for (within) post navigation to bypass the in/out menu issue.

That said when I go to a major blog like Zerohedge, they don't have that option - so maybe it's not so easy.

Any help much appreciated.

Excellent - that did the trick nicely.

Code:
.nm_next_post {
 display:inline-block;
 float: left;
 text-transform: uppercase;
 color: #333;
 opacity:0.7;
 font-weight:600;
 font-size:0.7em;
}

Thanks again. That's me sorted out for a while. Keep up the great work !!!

The thread is long and maybe I missed the post. I'm sorry if this is the case.

Is there any simple way how to wrap text around a post image on the page containing news excerpts, i.e. to align a post image to the left of text?

Carlos, I could not find this text to be able to translate it. http://prntscr.com/h0lux1
metatags work well

:-?
It's already translated in ru_RU.php
Code:
"NEW_POST"            =>  "Создать новую запись",
It could be that you have some $nm_i18n["NEW_POST"] definition in your gsconfig...

I suppose you mean the canonical meta tags. Thanks for reporting

indeed, it is, I added the parameters to gsconfig.php Smile

The ellipsis ("...") in numbered page navigation (available since NM 3.4) is not displayed (nor aligned) properly in Bootstrap - when set up as a "pagination" component in NM custom settings.

This will be fixed in next version. If anyone needs a patch, let me know.

Hello, i don't know if it the solution already exists, but i have an idea. It would be useful to have a possibility to make a priority to news. Let's say default settings would be priority 1. My first article would be published on 5th of January and the second article on the 8th of January. But the first article from the 5th will be suddenly more important and i want to display it as first without changing the release date. So i will set up the priority on 2. It means every published article even with a more recent date will be displeyed under the article with priority 2. Is it possible to do it please?

Currently (since NM 3.4) I can think of a way to do something like that for the main news page (by using a "special" tag, a gsconfig setting and a bit of code in the template), but... those "high priority" posts wouldn't be displayed in month/year archives, neither listed by nm_list_recent() (unless you patch the plugin)

[edit] There's also the easy way: rendering those high priority posts (tagged with the "special" tag) in the news home page just before the normal posts. But if they are recent they would be displayed twice Undecided

I am sorry in advance if I am asking something stupid, but am still pretty newbie with GetSimple because I have been using it only for 5 months.

The question is: I would like to know if its possible to add on the side of any page where someone is reading an article, all the tags related to that post. 

Like some websites says:Posts you may like 
Thanks!
