Config Options in the News Module



  • Hi there, new to this but have played with pies for a while.

    So I am trying to get much more of the current news articles on the screen, not just the headlines, how do I set up the config file to do this please.

    I have read throught the manual but I am just not getting it.

    Thanks



  • @edwardssj not in the doc, but a config option (defaults to false) is

    showFullArticle

    so, set that to true in the config.js newsreader config section



  • Could you give me an example please so I can understand where and the format, thanks.



  • @edwardssj never mind,. it doesn’ty work for some sites (as the site refuses to allow embedding)

    the setup was

    		{
    			module: "newsfeed",
    			disabled: false,
    			position: "bottom_bar",
    			config: {
    				feeds: [
    					{
    						title: "New York Times",
    						url: "http://www.nytimes.com/services/xml/rss/nyt/HomePage.xml"
    					}
    				],
    				showSourceTitle: true,
    				showPublishDate: true,
    				broadcastNewsFeeds: true,
    				broadcastNewsUpdates: true,
    				showFullArticle : true      // < ---  added this, with the comma on line before
    			}
    		},
    


  • @sdetweil Could you give me an example please so I can understand where and the format, thanks.



  • @edwardssj I did that in the message above this one



  • @sdetweil Sorry Sam, I should have refresehed 🙂



  • @edwardssj no problem. Hope it works for you.

    The New York Times doesn’t allow it’s feed to be framed away from it’s parent site



  • @sdetweil It does but of course brings the story up into a full screen, I just have to find a way to bring the text only into the window.

    Thank you for showing me the anatomy of the module.

  • @sdetweil I have broken something and I cannot see where
