Monklets

Monklets are snippets of code used to dynamically include content from your site. For example, a Monklet can be used to include the latest blog post, the three latest articles, or a signup form from the Forms module.

Overview

To insert a Monklet into your content, click Insert > Insert Monklet and select the Monklet you want from the pop-up menu.

Updating Links

The Full Calendar and All Messages links are displayed by their Monklets. If you change the events or sermons landing pages these links will need to be updated.

Full Calendar

This link is used in the Monklets called "Sidebar Monklet - Featured Event" and "Section Monklet - Upcoming Events" and is currently pointed to www.yourwebsite.com/resources/events. If the events page changes, you will need to update the link in both of these Monklets. Go to CONTENT > MONKLETS and select the Monklet. You will replace the line /resources/events with the new events location.

All Messages

This link is used in the Monklet called "Section Monklet - Latest Sermon" and is currently pointed to www.yourwebsite.com/resources/sermons. If the sermons page changes, you will need to update the link in the Monklet. Go to CONTENT > MONKLETS and select the Monklet. You will replace the line /resources/sermons with the new sermons location.
