Homepage Monklets


Note: For additional information about using monklets, check out our help article here. For help with inline parameters, check our help article here.

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 define items from a specific group, category, etc.  You can use one of the inline "find" parameters such as the "find_category" parameter to display items from a specific category. Example: {{section-monklet-featured-articles|find_category="stories"}}

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

Section Monklet - Recent Sermons (1)

Recent Sermon

This monklet will display the most recent sermon with the sermon details on the left and image/video on the right. If you want to display the latest sermon from a specific group or category, you can use the "find_group" and "find_category" inline parameters as needed. 

Here is an example of what this would look like if you wanted to display a sermon from the category "Prayer":  {{section-monklet-recent-sermons-1|find_category="prayer"}}

Section Monklet - Next Steps

Next Steps

This monklet will display a row of 4 images/content from a link list. The list of items can be setup under Content > Link Lists, and the name, link, image and description fields are used for each item. The border and icon/text color pulls from the Accent colors 1-4 in the color picker.

When using this monklet, you will need to use the "find" parameter to tell the monklet which link list to display. The homepage example looks like this: {{section-monklet-connect-links|find="next-steps-home"}}.

You can use this same monklet on other fullwidth sections throughout your site. You would need to create a new link list (Content > Link Lists), add the "Section Monklet - Connect Links" to a new section (or copy the "Home - Steps" section), and then add the "find" parameter to the monklet, like the example above (all lowercase and dashes instead of spaces).
