Omit the snipped text in the fullstory

Postby Esstee » Tue Jun 07, 2005 3:59 pm

Hello fellow Coranto user. I can refer to others here this way now because
as my status indicates I am a Coranto forum veteran :lol:

Anyways, the challenge is as follows, I have opted to incorporate my snippet
or teaser into my default input text field. because I want to make the interface
as fool proof as possible for my news submitters.

There are two things I am trying to accomplish with one feature, the idea is
to snip the teaser at X words (already done)

The other is to publish my full story and OMIT the text that was snipped in
the first place. why...? because I want to re-display that snipped text in an
italicized body and repeat the teaser placeholder image (if there is one) within
the full story page.

This would allow me to design continuity within the document for my readers
and also help reduce re creting image tags by the news submitters.

So is there an inverse snip feature that could display the remaining text
from the original snip feature?
I went deeper into the belly of Coranto and look! I found maginot.

Publish the exact snip code you use, easier to invert it then...

Well I have looked it over and although I use 3 different snip sypes on my
page only the classic one will be subject to reversal as I was mentioning.

So I guess its the classic:

<Snip 320: Field: Text>

Along this line, I also wanted to ask, is it normal that when you use the snip
function that you loose the <br> and <p> functions? because all my teasers
or headlines show up as unformated when I display them usin the <snip: ... >
function.

I have been looking over this potion of my news system in great detail
and considering the implications of isolation remaining snipped text and
the increased possibilities of the news submitters placing images that
could/would conflict with the fullstory in layout I think it would be better
all around if I created a seperate teaser field in this case.

I hope Parahead didn't go off on a long code spree for this, although I
think it would be very handy to have for other applications nonetheless.

thx for you support Parahead.

Nah, I didn't... There is a solution from me somewhere in this forum using something similar, splitting a newstext based on a p-tag or something if I don't remember wrong... Yes, the search ;-) returned this thread which with it's links to other threads might be interesting to you...

Exactly what I needed!
I was hoping to insert an already used teaser image (thumbnailed) in a
larger size in the fullstory introduction ( a repeat ) that approach will work
perfectly!

good stuff Parahead
