Quote and notification modules - advice needed

Postby bobdobelina » Mon Nov 20, 2017 1:34 pm


I'm looking to do two things on my website, if anyone can offer any advice that would be great.

1. I'd like to take a quote from my articles and have them appear larger, on the page. Something like this, https://s3.amazonaws.com/impressivewebs ... lquote.jpg I think traditionally it's called a blockquote but how would I make this appear halfway down the article? I don't want to create a new module for each article as we post 4 or 5 articles each day.

2. I then need to send an email to notify people that the article is published. It's a different person each time, sometimes 2 or 3 people. Is it possible to do this with custom fields? Or even to do it without opening the article, from the admin somehow?

Any help would be appreciated.

first, its good practice to put each question as separate topic.

for first solution you must write js-script if you want clever behavior for them.
if it just larger and float at right position - use css styles. inspect styles from your example and add them to your template css.
