Newsfeed in the WebWave - responsive webdesign application - allows to present shortened news automatically. This element has a wide-ranging capabilities. You may use it to create your own blog, to present the company news, and even demonstrate created products.
Newsfeed can be added from the menu on the left side of the screen. Just click the icon or drag it to the website.
When you add a new newsfeed on the website, it will be filled with examples of news. There will be example of miniature, the title of the article and its content. This content will allow you to modify the look of newsfeed. After adding real articles this examples will be replaced by them.
When you select an newsfeed, in the bottom panel you can set the following options:
Category – Articles from which category will appear in this feed (you can only choose one category).
Sorting – How the articles will be sorted. Chronologically, reversed chronologically or alphabetically.
Number of articles – How many articles will be displayed at once on the newsfeed, and how many articles should be in each row. For example, if you set the number of news at 6, and in the "row" you type 3, the newsfeed will have a maximum of two rows of 3 news each.
Vertical and horizontal spacing – Distance in pixels between news. You can separately set the horizontal and vertical spacing.
Teasers – Should the teasers (shortened version) of articles be displayed?
Number of words – How many words from the content of article should be displayed in the article teaser.
When you click “Displayed elements” button additional settings will appear:
Thumbnail – Do you want the thumbnail to be displayed in the newsfeed. Here you can also set how the image will be placed in the frame – whether it is to be fitted or cropped. A very important feature is also the arrangement of the image. Here you can select where will the thumbnail be placed. The default setting is to the left of the text, but it may be moved to the right, above, and below the text, as well as between the title and the content of the article.
Paging – Paging allows you to display in the newsfeed more articles than fits there at once. If, for example, we set that 6 articles will appear in the newsfeed, and has already written fifteen, thanks to paging we can display three tabs of articles with the maximum of 6 entries each. If you hide paging, then you will only see the latest articles in the newsfeed. Here, we can also change the arrow icon that appears on the paging list.
Read more – Do you want a “Read more” button in the newsfeed. If there's no such button, clicking the title or the thumbnail will also lead us to the article page.
Date – Do you want to display the publication time of the article.
In this window you can quickly go to creating a new article, and see a list of all articles displayed in the feed.
You can change the appearance of the newsfeed in the same way as any other element in the Webwave creator. You can also double-click any of the article elements to configure that exact element. So, if you double-click on the news headline, it will, as well as the other headlines in this list, be marked with a blue frame. In the bottom panel we will then be able to change the properties of only the headers. It will also be possible to edit the text style of the headlines.
Newsfeed shows teasers of existing news. Therefore, if we want to change a specific article (eg. the headline of one of the entries) we have to do it indirectly. Go to edit panel of a particular article and there change the title or the content of it. When you are finished editing the article, the changes will automatically be displayed in the newsfeed.
