Flexbox Blog Feed

This is a simple flexbox card layout that displays the most recent posts from a blog or blog tag/topic. It is intended to be use on pages that are not the blog to showcase blog content, typically a homepage or a company page.

Fields

In the module basic module, there are only three fields:

  • Choose Blog (Blog field)
  • Use posts from a specific tag/topic? (Boolean field)
  • Tag (tag field)

Customisations

Number of posts

You can decrease or increase the number of posts to be displayed by updating the numberofposts value. If you do so, you may want to also update the flex-basis width in the CSS (note that this changes in the media queries below).

Content displayed

When using this module with clients, I've often added in additional boolean fields that lets them choose what they want to display (e.g. so they can hide the author, date or summary). For example, if you create the boolean field "Display Summary", you could copy the snippet for that field and wrap it around the summary:

     {% if module.content.display_summary %}
      <div class="blog-post-summary">{{ post.post_summary }}</div>
     {% endif %}  

Styling

The module currently has minimal styling but can be customised using the CSS classes for each element.
