I can’t promise I can improve this behaviour as this is now a Theme Component and I have to rely mostly on what I serialised from Discourse. So date of tagging probably isn’t possible with the data available. It’s partly a result of simplifying this to a Theme Component. I went through this a long time ago and this was the best compromise.
There may be the option to add this additional choice when the plugin sidecar is added. That’s going to need to be a low priority.
I’ll have a brief look at the other issue when I have time, but again suspect this is native Discourse behaviour wrt to images.
I had reported this in the old thread, but I did not have a way to reproduce this issue. Now I understand clearly how to reproduce it.
Middle click on a unread post link from homepage (krita-artists.org) to open it in a new window. Or right click and click on open in new tab from context menu. Then from the newly opened tab go back to home page by clicking on the website logo at the header. When home page loads you will see the featured image component is not loaded. You will have to refresh the page for it to load.
This only happens when you open link in new tab and come back to homepage. If you left click and open the links in same page and come back it loads normally.
@merefield I had. And if there is different categories (tags etc. I haven’t tried) on the component and sidecar, nothing works — header section will be shown three times.
Anyway, only way to get excerps is the sidecar, and thumbnails works only via the component. And if there is thumbnails on, I can’t get excerpts no matter what. Because for me excerps are more important feature than thumbnails (images don’t generate any traffic) I’m happy.
Sure, it could be a conflict with other plugins/components, but I’ve tried that too, and there is not any issues. I’m on iPad right now so it is a bit difficult to find out if there is any JS- or similar errors.
Probably a clash. Investigate this by creating a Theme with only this component and build back up. Refresh browser with each change or change of setting. It’s likely you are using it with something it is not compatible with. It is not compatible with the News Plugin, for example. Please choose either one but not both.
