IntelliWidget Content Driven Featured Posts and Menus

Templates

Templates are used to display the IntelliWidget output. Each template loops through the results of the IntelliWidget Loop. There are several default templates included in the package but you can add as many as you wish. As an added convenience, IntelliWidget also looks for templates located in a folder named “intelliwidget” in your theme directory. Important: Template filenames must be unique to identify them in the template menu. If you are creating your own templates from existing ones, be sure to rename them with something like excerpts2.php.

  • This template outputs the post titles as an unsorted list (<ul> ). If the post contains a featured image, it is displayed using the “Image Align” and “Image Size” settings. Each post is wrapped in a <li> container.

  • Excerpts

    This template outputs the title as a link followed by the post excerpt (see “the_intelliwidget_content” function) on the right. A “Read More” link is displayed at the end of the excerpt using the “Link Text” setting. If the post contains a featured image, it is displayed using the “Image Align” and “Image Size” settings. Each post is wrapped in a <div> container.

  • Albums

    This template displays the post’s featured image using the “Image Align” and “Image Size” settings, followed by the post title as an h3 header. Each post is wrapped in a <div> container.

  • Events

    This template outputs the intelliwidget event date in “Month Day, Year” format on its own line, the title as a link followed by the post excerpt (see “the_intelliwidget_content” function). A “Read More” link is displayed at the end of the excerpt using the “Link Text” setting. If the post contains a featured image, it is displayed using the “Image Align” and “Image Size” settings. It is useful for date-specific posts when the “Big Date” template is not appropriate. Each post is wrapped in a <div> container.

  • Big Date

    This template outputs the post publish date as stacked three-letter month and date on the left, and the title as a link followed by the post excerpt (see “the_intelliwidget_content” function) on the right. A “Read More” link is displayed at the end of the excerpt using the “Link Text” setting. If the post contains a featured image, it is displayed using the “Image Align” and “Image Size” settings. Each post is wrapped in a <div> container.

  • Multi Date

    This template outputs the post event date (and the expire date, separated by a dash, if applicable) as stacked three-letter month and date on the left, and the title and excerpt (see “the_intelliwidget_content” function) on the right. A “Read More” link is displayed at the end of the excerpt using the “Link Text” setting. If the post contains a featured image, it is displayed using the “Image Align” and “Image Size” settings. Each post is wrapped in a <div> container.

  • Slides

    This template outputs the post titles as an unsorted list (<ul> ). The post content is displayed verbatim with no additional formatting. It is intended to be used with a slideshow/slider plugin and a custom post type (see “Custom Post Types”). Each post is wrapped in a <li> container.

  • Verbatim

    The post content is displayed verbatim with no additional formatting. It is intended to be used with a custom post type (see “Custom Post Types”). This is useful for displaying reusable content blocks on multiple pages.
