Ready for a challenge?
Now that you’ve learned all about markup in Views, can you apply what you’ve learned? Use your knowledge of customizing markup using the Views UI and your knowledge of overriding Views template files to apply the HTML markup in the pattern lab prototype to a view of recent posts. Download the demo files and database containing the view of recent posts in the additional resources section below. Contained in the top-level of the files download is a directory called "misc." Inside "misc" you'll find the demo-pattern-lab files:
- The latest posts file is located in
- The media block file is located in
Use your knowledge of inspecting views template files to locate the read more link markup in order to customize the markup and placement of the read more link, to match the prototype markup. You can find the setting to turn on the more link in the Views UI under the pager section in the middle column.
Here’s another hint: you’ll want to update the field settings for the body field to display a trimmed or summary display instead of the full body value.
Finally, For a bonus challenge, create an image style that matches the prototype image dimensions, and apply it to the image field in your view. To learn more about image styles in views, check out the video Using Image Styles with Views in the Drupalize.Me library.
Good luck with this challenge!
