    Hi Tom and team

    Thanks for the awesome updates, really glad to see this plugin get some love ๐Ÿ™‚

    Having said that, below are some feedback and some requests.

    • Cards should maybe be set as presets to give us a base to start off with before editing the individual settings. If cards are higher up in the menu thats where we will start before fiddling with the options later.
    • Read more border. How to remove it in easier way? When read more class deleted maybe apply color choice as set in wpsp. Or ability to chose if its a button or link
    • Card names from dropdown and on demos page not same
    • Cards presets with image on upper half of column. Just like ‘overlap’ but without the overlap
    • Carousel navigation arrows would be very useful
    • On cards like Polaroid, could it be possible to replace the image with video or slides?
    • Throw in some of your magic hooks and filters to allow better integration with GP theme. Things like color settings, color presets inheritable from theme could make it more easier for us.

    Hi Jamal,

    Thanks so much for the feedback!

    Cards should maybe be set as presets to give us a base to start off with before editing the individual settings. If cards are higher up in the menu thats where we will start before fiddling with the options later.

    Interesting idea – I wonder where in the settings would be ideal. I think it might be nice to do a “Design” tab which would hold the cards as well as all of the other design options.

    Read more border. How to remove it in easier way? When read more class deleted maybe apply color choice as set in wpsp. Or ability to chose if its a button or link

    Yea, there isn’t an option for the read more border. There really should be.

    Card names from dropdown and on demos page not same

    Thanks! Updated.

    Cards presets with image on upper half of column. Just like โ€˜overlapโ€™ but without the overlap

    Something like the “Base” card?

    Carousel navigation arrows would be very useful

    I agree – I just couldn’t get the design right. It’s possible to turn them on via a filter for now until we add the option.

    On cards like Polaroid, could it be possible to replace the image with video or slides?

    Right now you’d likely need to use hooks in order to do this. Definitely possible, though.

    Throw in some of your magic hooks and filters to allow better integration with GP theme. Things like color settings, color presets inheritable from theme could make it more easier for us.

    I’ve heard this a lot. Would definitely be nice to integrate the two styles – hard to do though! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Tom, love the update. Some feedback:

    Feature Request:

    WPSP needs a copy/duplicate/clone option when creating a new Post. Please! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Issues:

    Cards > Row

    When testing on our staging site the various card types, “Row” allowed me to *not* need this custom CSS to expand our featured image to the edges:

    #wpsp-15914 .wp-show-posts-image {
        margin: -15px -15px 15px;
    }

    (I have a 15px padding set via Columns > Padding.)

    Example screenshot (no custom CSS, “Row” selected for card type):

    But when applying the same settings over to our live site, this weird behavior happens:

    So on our live site, I have to use the custom CSS and select “none” for card types.

    I can only presume this is a bug of sorts. I’ve tried this multiple times.

    Hey Andre,

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Feature Request:

    WPSP needs a copy/duplicate/clone option when creating a new Post. Please! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Doing this is actually pretty complex, which is why we usually suggest using one of the plugins available that accomplish it. I’ll take another look at it though ๐Ÿ™‚

    But when applying the same settings over to our live site, this weird behavior happens:

    That’s actually one of the features of “Row” (better with less content).

    Maybe try the “Base” card instead?

    which is why we usually suggest using one of the plugins available that accomplish it.

    Can you recommend one that’s lightweight?

    Thatโ€™s actually one of the features of โ€œRowโ€ (better with less content).

    How come on two identical sites (live and a staging copy) the output is different?

    Maybe try the โ€œBaseโ€ card instead?

    I have, but I can’t seem to figure out how to fit/scale the image without it being cropped, like this:

    Hi there,

    i use this Duplicate Post plugin – i only use the New Draft option as Clone has been reported to cause some Database issues:

    https://en-gb.wordpress.org/plugins/duplicate-post/

    Your staging site doesn’t look like it is loading the CSS for the Row Card. Row is designed to display the image and text inline, as per the Live Site.

    Images in the Cards are using the object-fit: cover; property. which acts like the background-size: cover property. For the base card they also have this CSS:

    .wpsp-card .wp-show-posts-image img {
        height: 250px;
    }

    If you change this to height: auto; then you should be able to define the image height and width to suit within the WPSP list settings.

    If you change this to height: auto…

    Thx David, worked great. Going to give the ‘duplicate post’ plugin a miss, as it sounds a little risky.

    Awesome – thanks for the feedback, we’re looking at ways to make this simpler.
    Haha Duplicate Post, really makes my life easier, no issues here ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hey Tom

    Sorry for the late response, here are some suggestions that i think are worth exploring.

    Interesting idea โ€“ I wonder where in the settings would be ideal. I think it might be nice to do a โ€œDesignโ€ tab which would hold the cards as well as all of the other design options.

    Posts
    Layout
    – Columns
    – Cards
    – Images
    – carousel
    Content
    Meta
    Social
    Colors
    More settings

    If i were to decide i would remove all social color options and set individual brand colors with an option to override through css.
    Missed the “Base” card, that is what i had in mind.
    Lets say i would like to replace image and echo a shortcode there instead, how would i go about it?

    Hi there,

    First time i work with WP Show Post. And GeneratePress by the way. Works great. One remark regarding WP Show Post. I know this plugin can be used by any template, but i would like to see more style integration with GeneratePress by default. For example GN has buttons with slightly rounded corners by default. WP Show Post has square corners by default. I know i can change that, but it would by nice if default settings of WP Show Post and GeneratePress would be the same.

    And i agree with Andre. A copy/duplicate/clone option would be great.

    Jamal – I like the organization of that. Might have to re-design the way the tabs work to do something like that though.

    Hans – I agree, some more integration between the two would be good. For now, there’s a button class option where you can add the GP class: button

    That will make it so all the buttons are the same ๐Ÿ™‚

    Tom,

    The new features are great! Just a couple of notes…

    1. Itโ€™d be great to be able to customize the โ€œLoad moreโ€ text on the AJAX pagination button. Better yet, have the option of a spinner or some other animation.

    2. I think this has been mentioned here before, but Iโ€™m still hoping for an AJAX category filter. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great work as always!
