This plugin will let you pick any post or page or groups of them and sort them in any order. And if you dont pick any it will just show the most re
Ok now its installed into your sidebar. Heres how to configure it:
fill out all the data in the fields. As an example, the blurb widget is hard at work right now in this page’s sidebar and here’s how we set it up: Display Title = “Another Blurb Example” See more stories url: “/donate” Default image url: (blank) Number of posts to show: “2″ Number of thumbnails to show: “0″
Go ahead and hit “Save”.
Now here’s where it gets fun. Hit the “Add” button. You should now have a popup that says “Find posts”
The Blurb Template
Ok well we’ve included a bunch of templates you can copy and paste from.
You can certainly make your own but you will probably need some PHP experience or someone with PHP knowledge to make it go smoothly.
These are all found in the plugins widget/template folder.
The “default” template is whats in use – just copy and paste whatever template you want into that default template.
And then you can adjust all the CSS with the css style sheets found in plugin CSS folder.
And for all you scripties – if you wanna add jQuery stuff – just pop edit the scripts found in the JS folder.
If you know how to create widget areas within your template then actually you can put these blurbs all over the place
not just the sidebar.
There are plenty of client sites we made where they the entire page was covered in widget areas and the blurbs just filled in the rest.
Even more convenient is the use of blurbs to control which posts you want to hilite in your slider. Think about it…
