FAQ

What is storify

Storify is a way to tell stories using social media such as Tweets, photos and videos. You search multiple social networks from one place, and then drag individual elements into your story. You can re-order the elements and also add text to give context to your readers. See Storify F.A.Q for more informations.

How many stories are displayed

The stories (or liked stories) are displayed by pages of 20. When reaching the end of the page, the 20 next stories will be loaded.

What are the available options

There are two mandatory options. The omission of one of these parameters will prevent the plugin work:

  • username: the username from whom the stories will be gathered

Other optional options are:

  • name: the name of the widget, must be unique and contains only alphanumeric characters. Only usefull for post-processing using jQuery.
  • width: the width of the whole widget, by default, the tile of a story is 330×200
  • height: the height of the whole widget
  • entries: the number of stories to show. The size of an entry will then directly depend on the size of the whole widget
  • scroll: the number of stories to scroll, this must not exceed the number of entries shown
  • orientation: the orientation of the widget, either horizontal or vertical
  • type: the type of stories to gather, either stories or likes
  • sorting: the order of the stories, either asc or desc. Default value is desc and shows last entry first
Where and how do i add a short code

You can add a short code pretty much anywere. Create a page and past this sample code:

[storify-stories-slider username=”your_storify_username_here”]

Change the username and then go and check out the page to see the slider working. To add an option, just edit the short code you’ve created and add the option you want. Both option name and value must be surrounded by coma.
For instance the following short code will create a vertical slider which display 4 stories ordered by date (first is the oldest), scroll by one and have a size of 400×800:

[storify-stories-slider username=”your_storify_username_here” sorting=”asc” entries=”4″ scroll=”1″ orientation=”vertical” width=”400″ height=”800″ ]
