[News] News header
Posted By Crytiqal on Thursday 07 April 2011 - 06:57:36
Description Please make an option where one can define a $caption for the newsheader.

Currently, a $caption is absent, but I would very much like to have a header (optional) above my list of news articles.

I don't know if you understood my feature request, but it's about having a caption above the news item list.

<My website news:>

Oh yes, my apologies, I misread the preference Silly me.

Perhaps a description field + shortcode added to news categories.

A couple of workarounds.
* Welcome message could be used, if you don't use that for your homepage.
* You could add the description to your theme.

I did add the description to my theme,
but it was a pain in the butt

There were many things needed to be taking into account in order to only show the header on wanted occasions.
(based on e_QUERY, current e_PAGE and whatnot).
Also, the header section needed to be closed in the theme aswell, which would cause a lot of trouble if the news category list was also shown.)
