Site News: Brief and full description

Various ways of displaying entries are possible within Site News module. If you check “Show brief version of the text if it is too long box”, only the part of the brief version will be displayed on the page (the part limited by the option “Number of characters for a brief version”) together with “Read more” link. If you click on the link, the page with entry full text will open.

Another option is to use “Entry brief description“ as a field of a new entry form. In this way the content of “Short description” field will be displayed on the main page (of site or module). And when you click on the entry name, the content of “Entry full text” will be displayed.

If you forbid a user group (for example Guests) to Read entries, they will be able to see only the content of Short description on the main page.
If you forbid a user group (for example Guests) to view the main page, they will not be able to see Short description of the entry.

Site News module doesn't have its own main page as other catalog-modules do. That is why the code responsible for outputting news is added to Home page content by default.
If you have messed up with the code when editing it – the news are not going to be displayed.

The code that outputs news:
Code
<?if($ADD_ENTRY_LINK$)?><div align="right" style="padding-bottom:3px;">[ <a href="$ADD_ENTRY_LINK$">Add entry</a> ]</div><?endif?>$LAST_NEWS$


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Where can I set the number of characters in Short description?
Control panel->Site News->Module settings-> Number of characters for a brief version
The news ends up with ellipsis (dots) in Short description. Can I substitute it with my own character?
Unfortunately, it is not possible.
Is it possible to output only Entry name on Site News page so that the news itself will be located on the other page?
Yes, it is possible. You need to hide Short description. It can be done by editing Appearance of entries template in Control panel->Design->Design management (templates)->Site news
There are big spaces in the text of full description of the entry. How to fix it?
Most probably you used Word to embed the text. It is highly unrecommended. Copy and paste the text into Notepad and then from the Notepad to the website.
Can I use “Entry brief description” option for one news only?
Unfortunately, it is not possible by means of standard system solutions. Scripts might help you.
Is it possible to display news on the main page in the way they are displayed on the Page with entries full text and its comments?
No. Full text can not be displayed on the main page.
Can I display Entry names only?
Yes, it can be done by means of Informers. See more about them here: http://forum.ucoz.com/forum/37-457-2206-16-1206353355
Another option is to edit Appearance of entries template.
What is the maximum number of characters in the “Entry full text”?
40 000 characters.
Where can I change “Read more” in Short description?
Control panel->Substitution of default phrases->Site News
Which part of Style sheet CSS is responsible for changing the color of “Read more” inscription?
Control panel->Design->Design management (CSS)->class entryReadAllLink
How can I substitute “Read more” inscription with an image?
Control panel->Substitution of default phrases->Site News->substitute the text with HTML code of the image, like:
Code
<img src="...">

I'm curious to know if this can be fixed to count only the entry words and not the mark-up. Perhaps, if the brief version cuts off an element, it could close the code instead of neglecting any html.

It is not possible to fix this, the brief version cuts the text according to the number of characters specified in the settings.

I can suggest the following - use the code $CUT$ to separate the brief description. You can put this code into any place of an entry.

Valmont, CP -> Site News -> Module settings -> Show brief version of the text if it is too long: uncheck the box (disable)and "read more" will disappear automatically.
Unlike computers, no human brain has ever said:" Hard drive full."

cyberworlds,
if you disable the brief version of the text in the Module settings - all the entries will not have the button "Read more".
In the template "Apperance of entries" you can insert any button (in the form of picture or what you would like) which will redirect to the entry page.

I hope it will help smile
