Article List Manager (arlima)
[resolved] Multiple Lists (2 posts)

    Vic,

    Got a question. I post news daily on my static home page using the article list. Sometimes I get a high volume of daily news which is listed on my home page. Some news is newsworthy for a day or two while others are for several days or a week because of the significance. My theme supports a nav menu above and below the header image. I'm thinking about creating a second nav menu something like the following:

    Home - Other News - Indian Gaming - Legal News - Continuing Issues

    Then I would need to create and link a post or page to the menu button. This would help me better manage my articles rotation and allow leaving posted some articles of importance without crowding my home page. I know the plugin says "Manage Lists" so that would seem to indicate I could. Any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks.

    Hi Jay!

    Yes, of course you can have several lists on your website. This is how you would go about it (this is more or less a copy from the wiki):

    1. Go to "Article lists" -> "Edit lists" in wp-admin and create the list
    2. Open the page where you want to display your article list in wp-admin
    3. Down to the right you will see a meta box labeled "Arlima". In this meta box you choose which article list you want to display on the page. You also get the possibility to configure the width of your list (which is used to calculate the dimensions of your article images) and the number of articles in the list that should be displayed.
    4. Go to "Article lists" -> "Manage lists" and start filling your list with content. Use the drop down list in the upper left corner (bullet point 1 in the interface walkthrough) to open the list.

    After having done all that you go to the menu editor in wp-admin and add the page you related your article list to (on step 2 in the list above).
