Homepage 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 - {{section-monklet-featured-articles|find_category="stories"}}

These monklets were designed to be used on Tubman's homepage, but can be used in other full width sections throughout your site! You can find other monklets included on your theme HERE.
