Display 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc newest items on separate pages?

Postby GabeT » Sat May 05, 2007 3:59 am

Sorry for the title of the thread. My problem is kinda hard to explain.

Anyway, I'm working on a featured content module that will rotate the 5 latest items. My question is, how can i have coranto display the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th newest items on their own separate pages.

Here is an example of what I'm trying to work with.

Thanks for the help as always!

Sounds like using viewnews.cgi is the best option for you, if you only want the fifth newest items. Otherwise Maginot can be used, but in your case it will give you an overhead on the server in regards to redundant old files.
Yes, I am still around...

Parahead thanks for the reply, sorry I'm so late getting back to reply back. I wouldn't know where to start when using viewnews what would be the best/easiest way about doing this?

A bit outdated but you can check this. It gives an idea of how viewnews works. Basically you call viewnews with the item ID, what style you want to use etc..

Anyone have any fresh info they want to add? I need to display my news starting with the second item. I'm finally getting to the point where I need to get this working for me. Anyone willing to drop some info?

I dont't quite understand what you are trying to do (your example is 404 by now). Could you elaborate a little?

Sorry here is a current link to check out. The top features is the area where I want to start from the second item. The first 1 is the bigger center picture of the guy in the furr coat.

Sorry if I'm being daft, but couldn't you just set the profile to skip 1 item and set the "Filter by number" option to 4? That would give you the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th item included in that profile.

wouldnt that still show the first newest item? In case I wasn't clear, I want to skip the first item and start from the second newest item.

Holy Crap! I feel like a dork for not checking if there were options in the profile settings. I see how it's done now. Thanks for your time SrNupsen
