Subpage Default Monklets

Overview

Monklets are predefined code snippets that allow you to bring in other module content (sermons, events, etc.) into your pages.  There are a few monklets that have been created that are placed in the content area of your sidebar sections.

You can use a monklet inside a section by placing your cursor in the content area, selecting Insert > Insert Monklet > "Desired Monklet".

Some monklets allow/require inline parameters to be passed to define items from a specific group, category, etc.  http://help.monkcms.com/article/using-monklets/ provides details on using these parameters.

You can use one of the inline find parameters such as the find_category parameter to display a items from a specific category.   Once the monklet has been inserted you will manually type in a pipe after the monklet name followed by the find_category= and then enclose the category slug in quotes.  A slug is the name of an item in lowercase with dashes in place of spaces eg. My Category would have a slug of my-category.  The find_group parameter works in the same way.

Example - {{sidebar-monklet-featured-article|find_category="stories"}}


Monklets that are defined with "Sidebar Monklet" in the title can only be inserted into the content area of a sidebar section.
