RokSprocket: Grids Layout Mode

Your Guide to the Grids RokSprocket Layout Mode for WordPress


Grids

The Grids layout mode gives you the ability to quickly deploy a grid of images and/or other items that display in a modern grid-like fashion.

1
Title
This is the title of your widget.
2
Filtered Article List Options
Gives you access to item-specific settings for the articles title, description, image, and link.
3
Content Filter Rules
Sets the content filter rules for the widget.
  1. The Title field gives you the ability to set a title for the widget itself. Every widget has to have a title, though you can opt to hide it from public view for a cleaner, more template integrated look. The Position field right below it gives you the ability to set the position within the template's layout the widget should appear in.

  2. The Filtered Article List gives you access to item-specific settings including:

    • Title - Allows you to override the article title in the widget. The article title will be used if this is left at Default. In the Simple content provider, the fallback for the default article title is the item name in the Filtered Article List.
    • Description - Allows you to set a description for the item. If this is left at Default the introtext from the article is used.
    • Image - This allows you to circumvent the assigned image from the article and replace it with one specifically for the item.
    • Link - If set, the link will show a Read More button as well as link the title. On specific themes, it will link the image in the item, as well.
  3. The Content Filter Rules section gives you the ability to determine how the widget will pull content to make up the grid items. For example, you can have the widget pull articles that are within a specific category, contain a particular name or keyword in the title, or choose specific articles. You can also modify how this content is sorted in the widget. In the case of a Simple provider, this area allows you to add new items to the Filtered Article List.

Below the Content Filter Rules section are two options areas specific to the layout mode you have chosen. We have broken down the Grids Layout Options and Grids Article Defaults sections below.
