Blog Post List Excerpt+Image Layout

Beta License: LGPL-3 OCA/website Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runbot

This module extends the functionality of blogs to support having a more attractive layout that automatically displays an excerpt of each post, a "Read more" button and the chosen social share image (which will default to the 1st one in the post content if there's no cover).

It looks like this:

Usage

To use this module, you need to:

  1. Go to your blog.
  2. Disable the cover image from Customize > Blog Posts > Cover image to avoid having too many images, and possibly repeated ones.
  3. Enable the template from Customize > Blog Posts > Floating social share image if it is not enabled by default.
  4. Your posts will now display a thumbnail of the chosen social share image.

This module also will autoselect the 1st image in the blog content as the social share image, if there's no post cover and the publisher didn't choose a different one manually, from the Promote > Optimize SEO wizard.
