How to edit blog page format in Developer Mode

Recommended Posts

Our website uses the 7.0 Bedford template which only allows you to format your blog as a list however, Developer Mode is activated which means we can't switch template to allow us to display our blog as a grid etc., without losing existing changes we've made with code. Is there any way  workaround for this using code?

The only workaround is to use a Summary Block to display the blog list in a grid. Other options require you to disable Developer Mode and lose any customisations that were built using it.

Thank you for your reply! We have looked at using a Summary Block to try this but would we have to have two separate but public pages to achieve this? Or is there a way the blog could feed into the Summary Block without complicating the layout of our website? Ideally we would prevent anyone from looking at the blog in list view as it's not working well for engagement with our posts. 

Thanks!
