Plugin Guide > Widgets > Recent Ideas

The Ideas: Recent Ideas widget is a responsive widget, but is best utilized in a sidebar to complement a page with other activity. This widget will only show ideas created and the text associated with it is truncated to the first 30 words so that it does not take up too much space.

It has the following setup:

 

 1  Title


Enter a title.

Feature: Replacing any title present with one blank space will result in not having any header and just the data from this widget. Depending on how you present data to users, this may be desirable. Note that if the title is completely deleted without any space as noted in this feature or characters, the Default will be added to the title.

Default: "Recent Ideas". 

 

 2  Number of ideas shown at a time


Enter the number of ideas shown at a time.

Note: If there are more ideas to show than the number indicated, a Load More link will allow the user to see the next number of ideas equal to this same number. For instance if the number of ideas to show at a time is 5 and there are 12 ideas, the first 5 ideas will display. When the user clicks the Load More link, another 5 ideas will display now showing 10. When the user clicks the Load More link one more time, the remaining 2 ideas will display.

Default: 5.

 

 3  Show Border?


Check the box to show a border (enable) around this widget; uncheck the box to not show a border (disable) around this widget.

Default: Checked (enabled).

 

 4  Border Color


If Show Border is enabled, enter the hex value of the color desired. A great source for color codes can be found at HTML Color Codes.

Default: bdbdbd (light grey).

 

 5  Border Size


If Show Border is enabled, enter the size of the border in pixels.

Default: 1.

 

 6  Padding Option


This section is for padding options inside the widget. Padding here is additional space applied inside the widget on the top, right, bottom and left. Some themes or page building tools will take care of this in a satisfactory way, but others will not.

 

 7  Padding-top


Enter padding to be applied at the top in pixels:

Default: 0.

 

 8  Padding-right


Enter padding to be applied on the right in pixels:

Default: 0.
