Looking for a new page

Post by MarcBor » Mon Jun 10, 2019 9:12 am

Hi all,
I've been searching through the extensions, but can't find what I'm looking for.
After my site members log in, I want to redirect them to a new landing page (no problems there).
I want that page to look a bit like this:

Code: Select all

+----------------------------------------+------------------------------------+
| Featured article 1                     | Featured article 2                 |
|                                        |                                    |
|                           Read more... |                      Read more...  |
+----------------------------------------+------------------------------------+
+--------------------------+--------------------------+-----------------------+
| Category listing 1       |Category listing 2        | Category listing 3    |
|                          |                          |                       |
+--------------------------+--------------------------+-----------------------+
Who can point me to an extension that can do this?

You don't need any extension.

1) Create a Menu Item of type "Featured Articles" set to show two articles.

2) Create modules for the 3 Category Listings.

Your template must have module positions below the content area.

Oke, thanks. I'm using Astroid and in there I can make new module positions.
Now fighting the menu item for featured articles.
If a field is left blank, global settings will be used.
# Leading Articles = 1
# Intro Articles = 2
# Columns = 2
# Links = 3
Multi Column Order = Across

Cause I've derided to show 3 featured articles. The leading displays correct. The two below it fail to display next to each other.

That must be a css issue in the template. Inspect it with the browser tool.
