A plugin for visual grid view of a forum?
edited August 2015 in General Banter
I'm wondering if there is a plugin that allows you to turn a specific category view into a visual grid. It would pull the first image/video from the post and then display that with the title underneath it. I'm thinking of something along the lines of what you see on http://dribbble.com
I'm kind of new to the world of Vanilla, so if this sort of thing doesn't exist, does it seem like something that would be crazy difficult to build out?
doesn't seem to crazy.
you could either create new page to view with only title and first image.
or you could add a plugin triggering event in categories controller - that parses through body of each discussion to search for first image and add an image to left of title. similar to the display of indexphotos plugin.
you could look at these for ideas.
I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.
Thanks @peregrine! I'm already using indexdiscussionimage so I think I'll just need to play with styling it to suit my needs. I'll look into the others you shared.
