Help page error Edit

Category and author examples seem messed up? --◄mendel► 01:02, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

The category example uses the <author> tag, and vice versa. JesseRoo (Talk)
I've just created a blog list and this isn't true.
Eric Ryan Jones just fixed the description (thanks Eric!) Kirkburn (talk) @Wikia 12:07, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

Limiting the amount of summary text shown Edit

I'm currently in search of a way to limit the amount of text it show, for a main page sumary of all blogs posts. — TulipVorlax 17:19, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

TulipVorlax: the way is to enter "summarylength=(number)" as a variable in the bloglist tag. Wjxhuang, the 888th Avatar {Talk} 14:34, 2 July 2009 (UTC)
Thanks, i've set it up to 150. — TulipVorlax 04:32, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

Changing the colours Edit

How do I change the header color and header font color? It's defaulting to the wikis skin.. //--TehK 19:45, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

TulipVorlax: No problem. :) TehK: Enter style= and use normal CSS styling such as "color:" and "background-color:". Wjxhuang, the 888th Avatar {Talk} 09:28, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
I can't get the header color to change though :( //--TehK 21:53, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
Which header colour, specifically? The heading on File:Wikia blog articles 3.png? Kirkburn (talk) @Wikia 12:07, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

Bloglist width Edit

Is it possible to vary the width of the bloglist? I don't see it listed as one of the variable parameters. -- yoda8myhead 09:23, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

I believe the style parameter should allow you to do that? e.g. style="width:600px;" Kirkburn (talk) @Wikia 13:34, 3 August 2009 (UTC)
I just tried using the 'style' attribute and it didn't seem to work. Does it work when you try it?

Removing the grey thin border between (and under) blog posts while using 'plain' mode Edit

Is there any way to do it? --BramTalk! 15:40, April 11, 2010 (UTC)

Sample image Edit

The current sample image depiction is no longer possible with Oasis. -- LordTBT Talk! 17:19, October 10, 2010 (UTC)

Up to date? Edit

Is this no longer up to date? The image does not appear to match the code (new skin?), style doesn't work, nor does timestamp. Also, this page wasn't exactly easy to find; it should appear on Special:CreateBlogListingPage. The special page doesn't work right, either. You can't take categories off, it doesn't offer a method for adding authors and the whole bottom half the page is confusing. It's a really neat feature that can't be used to its full potential. I'd love to be able to do some neat stuff with this. Finally, when you fix it and update this page, the option to hide or show avatars and resize them would be nice. — JediRogue 03:34, November 17, 2010 (UTC)

Doesn't Work Edit

I've tried several of the solutions explained in the article to create a bloglisting like the one on the Community Central main page, I've even copied their code, but every time I get a default bloglist with the most recent of all blog posts. WarriorLoverInc 23:03, May 15, 2011 (UTC)

Never mind, I've puzzled it out. WarriorLoverInc 18:58, May 30, 2011 (UTC)

This is really cool Edit

I just tried this feature out; it's amazing! Does anyone know if it works with updated pages rather than blogs, if there is another feature like it, or if I should put in a request for one? Geniusguy445 (talk) 03:54, July 13, 2011 (UTC)

Blogs in multiple Columns Edit

Hi guys, I need some help. The blog tags are nice, but I want to put them in columns, like here. But the blogs need to be in chronological order, not copies of each other. Any ideas? Shrev64(TalkContribs) 18:03, July 18, 2011 (UTC)

"See more" - how? Edit

I've followed the instructions, adding code near the bottom of Familypedia's main page, including a "seemore=". No sign of a "See more" link. How and when is it created? -- Robin Patterson (Talk) 13:11, December 30, 2012 (UTC)

It looks like "See more" only appears for the default (box) output style, it will appear if you remove the type=plain parameter. --BertH @Wikia (help forum | blog) 23:19, January 3, 2013 (UTC)
That's a pity. When I had it on the default style it showed nothing at all, and I concluded that our column (right-hand under the ad box) was too narrow for the box style. Setting it to plain immediately displayed blog text and headings but not "See more". I'll do a comparison with "Civilization" to see if I can discern a secret. -- Robin Patterson (Talk) 00:08, January 4, 2013 (UTC)
