Daily blog post feature
I am not a programmer (that will be clear in a moment). I am looking for an add-on or solution to post a single blog post on the home page of a site (1 unique post/365 days a year). The content is ready, but I am not sure how to build a database that will pull day 254, for example.
Any help is appreciated.
The page is able to call up the daily post, but the text is not formatted in the page list block, so I only see the description from the block, not the actual post. Again, probably in over my head on this one.
Check through the templates are already installed when you click the blocks menu for 'Design and Custom Template' (a few rows below 'edit' in the dropdown menu).
There are also several template collections with alternate page list templates in the marketplace, some of them free.
Even if you don't find exactly what you want, you may find a better starting point for developing your own code.
If you do need to write code, there is an addon for legacy concrete5 (so it won't run on v8) called Page List Teasers that I think has the functionality you want, so may give you some code ideas.
Which contains a custom template called "One Page" which will not list the post summary but the entire post.
I'm not sure this is what you want but it is pretty cool.
