Add parameters to View in Blog

Post by FatalMusic » Wed Mar 12, 2008 4:13 pm

Hello :)

Please consider the following for your next upgrade:

It would be great if the 'blog view' would have the option to thumbnail (set size + location left, center or right in parameters ) AND link the first image to the article. This would give much better control on to how the blog view is presented and looking at the forums, A LOT of people are in need of this.. It would make many very happy.


Thank you.

This is already possible through template overrides.
god doesn't play dice with the universe. not after that drunken night with the devil where he lost classical mechanics in a game of craps.

Since the creation of the Internet, the Earth's rotation has been fueled, primarily, by the collective spinning of English teachers in their graves.

I think the point is that for basic things you should not have to create an over ride. Overrides limit your options since you must chose one or the other (you lose the core layout), a parameter lets you choose options.
So we must fix our vision not merely on the negative expulsion of war, but upon the positive affirmation of peace. MLK 1964.
