It is possible to add custom information for each individual item in Latest News Enhanced Pro, on top of the detailed information you can already show.

In order to do that, we can take advantage of 2 of the hooks (events) available in the extension.

First, we need to be able to add the field type in the list of fields available for output and second, we need to set how the output will present itself for each item.

With this tutorial, you will be able to add:

  • a field type that can render an article or K2 item title,
  • a field type that outputs a link,
  • a field type that outputs the meta description of an article or K2 item, if available,
  • a field type that can query a database table for getting a specific value,
  • the Gravatar of the author (version for LNEP v4.6+ only).
  • New the length of a YouTube video when the head type is a YouTube video (version for LNEP v4.9+ only).
