just don't understand the noteBrowser Info Environment
i'm starting with concrete5, and I don't understand how to realise what you say in the note : add a thumbnail to your page type properties at custom attributes with the handle 'page_thumbnail'.
For each page that appear in the Thumbviewer, I have to go to the Page Properties menu, in the custom properties section, and then...?
I know this is a simple operation, but I don't figure out what is the connection between the Concrete5 panel and the code.
When adding a new page beneath that should get listed in the thumbnail template you go to that pages properties and choose the attribute from the dropdown.
Its a real shame this add on doesnt come with clearer instructions on just how to get it to work.
It is probably just me but I have added the custom attribute so that when i create a new page I can select this from the dropdown, which then gives me the option to select one image. BUT, surely this isnt it? and how do i get it to illustrate on the page correctly? Do i need a new page type too with a new editable area added to accept this new attribute?
Apologies if this is me being stupid but i really cant seem to get this sorted :(
The addon covers a thumbnail view for the page list block and displays each thumbnail thats assigned to a page in a page list.
This looks like a great add-on but the instructions are not clear and not complete!
after you added the page list, click on it and then use 'choose template'.
I am familar with the system, well at least I thought I was! Thanks for that, you learn something new everyday!
I have the page list and custom theme working... but I don't know how to assign a thumbnail to a page. Can you explain? Attached is what it looks like now. I have image sets uploaded to each of these pages.
sorry for the late reply.
The trick is to create a custom attribute image for your page type with the handle 'page_thumbnail'. You then assign an image to your page and it will show up.
I will add further instructions to the package soon.
