Support » Plugin: Advanced Recent Posts » Change green color on Drop Cap and use 2 column layout

    I have added “Advanced Recent Posts” 0.6 plugin, and added shortcode to display recent posts on static home page.

    1) The Drop Cap layout is appropriate as my recent posts have no images, but the bright green color of the date boxes clashes with my theme. How can I edit the color?

    2) The setting for 2 columns is greyed out and not selectable, but demo shows it is possible. How do I access 2 column layout?

    Thanks for assistance!

    Hello!

    1. Right now you can edit CSS manually. Just open file lptw-recent-posts.css with any text editor (Notepad as example), find style .lptw-dropcap-date and change color #4CAF50 in property background-color to the one that is needed. Color in HEX RGB, you can use one of your teme colors or pick up color with paletton.com.
    Color picker in shortcode builder will be available in one of the following versions of the plugin.

    2. Sorry, this is a bug of the shortcode builder, i’ll fix it in the next release of plugin. Right now you can just add property columns=”2″ and the layout will be display in 2 columns.

    I added a Color Picker to the new version of the plugin, please update.
    Bug with disabled columns in the Shortcode Builder also fixed.

    Hi Eugene,

    Thanks! That’s great.

    The color picker works, that was a deal maker. The column selection didn’t. I tried adding columns=”2″ inside the brackets of the shortcode, but it just kept the posts in one column and put some content I had below the post feed up at top of the second column.

    Would be nice if color picker (all settings?) would retain settings between sessions.

    Good plugin!

    Hello!

    I tried adding columns=”2″ inside the brackets of the shortcode, but it just kept the posts in one column and put some content I had below the post feed up at top of the second column.

    It’s possible because width of the layout container larger than the layout, width also depends on the margin and padding. As example see my demo: http://demo.lp-tricks.com/recent-posts/drop-cap-layout/
    Width of every column is 340px, if I set width of the container as 680px – posts will be display in one column, because there are padding in the container and margins around the posts. If I set width of the container as 800px or more – everything is OK!
    Try to set the width of the container greater. Or set the width in the column with recent post less than now.

    Would be nice if color picker (all settings?) would retain settings between sessions.

    Great idea! Perhaps I’ll add that feature in one of the following versions of the plugin.

    Thank you for review and idea. If you like my plugin – please, rate this.
