I have just added to the list of filters the possibility to use custom fields as selectors.

Any Simplify Your Web extension that has an output display

After installing any of the Simplify Your Web extensions (or after moving the site to a different server with different settings), some users may experience issues with the extension's HTML output. No matter the setup, the output does not look anything like any of the demos or screenshots that the user has seen...

Feelings of disappointment occur (it should work from the start, right?). What is really happening?

This tutorial will help you diagnose the issue (or confirm it) and guide you to help you fix it.

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).
