Feature Card Style


Feature Cards style feeds display in a custom card like to the WKU Homepage or the Style-4 card snippet. This card displays the article image with a title and date. When hovering over the card the description area expands and the image takes a WKU red fade effect. If you do not have an article image a default one of big red is provided. Style 7 displays these cards in a row, best used for one column templates. Style 8 displays these cards in a grid style, this is not compatible with side columns.


 

Style 7 Featured Card Style (Row)

You may have to adjust the number of items displayed to get the best appearance based upon how many columns you have enabled. Display 2 articles if left and right enabled. 3 articles for one side column. 3 or 4 articles for single column layouts.

?>



Style 8 Featured Card Style (Grid)

When selecting number of articles to display, try to use an even number to keep the grid full.

$config['newsid'] = '45';

// number of articles to be shown in the feed, required
$config['articles'] = '3';

// style to use when formatting the feed on the page, required
