Thanks Scoobie :-) I searched the answers but can't find a specific question for a piece of code... You make great points in your feature request btw, I will make sure to vote for it. And no: I'm not specifically asking for a grid based blogging template with infinite scrolling, I was thinking of using the carousel myself. I can see though how a grid like that could be useful to a lot of people. By the way: if you use blog excerpts now, you get sort of a list of your blogposts. But it's not a neat small list, and it's not customisable. It does show though that it's not impossible to have more than 30 items in a the list, and that having over 30 items doesn't necessarily hamper download speeds as customer service suggested to me in my correspondence with them. They were very helpful too, and indeed I asked them for the Summary Block to work differently, and they have forwarded the request to the Developer Team. Let's see what happens :-)... And yes people: feel free to vote for this question if you want to attract the attention of that Team :-)...!
I love the new Summary Block. And I would like to use it to let a visitor browse through excerpts of my blogposts before they dive into the posts themselves - especially the carousel option is extremely suitable for that. Bummer: when you try to implement this feature the number of blogposts that you can show is limited to 30. Would anyone now if the 30-items-limit is overridable with some piece of code that could be injected somewhere? I know that if you use blog excerpts in the regular way, the number of posts to be displayed is unlimited. But the way in which you can display them is not. And with the new Summary Block you have so many nice options for customisation... I also understand that I could implement different Summary Blocks, one after the other, each set up to cover a different time period of a blog. But it would be so much better to a have one nice, clean carousel (for instance) to cover all the posts. And since the Summary Block is especially set up to deal with blogs (among others), one would expect to have an 'unlimited option' in the first place, no :-)...? Anyway: I don't know anything about code except how to copy and paste it, so if somebody would have a solution: a step by step guide for implementing it would be extremely welcome :-) :-)... Thanks a bunch in advance!
