Hi Malte, Hi rk!
Do you have an idea why the "More News" block has disappered?
It should be restored as soon as possible.

The "DeepaMehta News"-Block in the sidebar has a "More News" button again (at the bottom).

I further noticed that:

  • News are now listed there complete (earlier this year news had a specific teaser and just that was shown in the sidebar block list entry, if I am not mistaken). The question is: Do we want to leave it like this now?
  • the styling of the "Latest news"-Page (the one listing all news) is slightly broken and could need a minor revision (padding upper top/left under the page-title and maybe with white background color) like https://www.deepamehta.de/de/applications#overlay-context=de/content/willkommen-bei-deepamehta) -

I will place the latter as a wish in #353.
So, I guess we can close this issue now, right?

Replying to Malte:

Is not quite as it was before.
Below the 2 most recent news we had a "More News" section listing the 5 (or so) next news headlines (clickable) along with dates. And below *that* we had the link that leads to the all-news page (as it is now.)
From my point of view there was no reason/discussion for changing that. Why has it changed at all?
I would really love when we can have it exactly as it was before.

We want NO teasers. We had that discussed already.

True. For now, actually I just followed your wish described in this ticket and this ticket did not state, please restore to state before or such things. This ticket wished for add "More News"-button, nothing more. And acutally I could not remember how it was before and I dunno why it changed at all, but I guess either:

  • the view configuration changed during the other language issue we (recently) had with this block
  • or it was override by my theme update.

I will investigate a bit more how we had this realized. Thanks for claryfing the issue.

Ah, sorry, with "More News"-Section you probably meant that "5 headlines"-listing. Sorry, now it's more clear.

So, to make everything clear here:

  • I will investigate what altered our news-block in the sidebar

An english/german switch should absolutely have no side-effect on our news-section (news sall always be written in english and the content set to be "language neutral" in drupal)

  • We want our 5 headlines listing (with direct link ot news) section back in our news-block
  • We want a button which always and just states literally "More News" linking to http://www.deepamehta.de/de/latest-news / as it does now.

If that is how it was before/ resp. shall be in the future the instructions for this work/ticket are imo clear. Thanks for claryfing what was needed/is wanted.

The DeepaMehta News Page (http://www.deepamehta.de/de/latest-news) was restored, allowing paging back trough the very first news entry. Minor style issues remain to be discussed. It was broken until 1hour ago.

Replying to Malte:

  • We want our 5 headlines listing (with direct link ot news) section back in our news-block

This listing was headed with "More News" (if I'm remembering right). Please give this header.

The link text was actually "Read all news". Please make it this way.

Thank you vey much!

The 2nd News block should be restored and styled as before. We currently do not know what happened to the old one.
