What does the user experience look like if they want to print an article from the tile?

if you open an announcement in a dialog window, you can print the article by clicking the “print” icon in the footer area:

Love this webpart, you guys are always doing a great job! I have few questions though.
I've selected the pages library, it is possible to slect a different column to to assign a picture through to appear on the top of the post? You mention Show Extra Column setting, but I am unsure how to apply this.
If using the pages library, it is possible to have the body text for each tile come from specified different colum? This way you can always control what text appear in each window? If I use your screen shot example, the text under the first tile "2019 will be a big year for our tech wearables...." this is what I would like to pull from the assigned column if possilbe? Essentially creating a byline for each story.
And last question is it possible to make a button display at the bottom left of the post versus appending the "Read More" at the end of the body text?
Any help is appreciated.

would you want to rather use the "Rollup Image" column or a custom column of type "Hyperlink or Picture" to specify the source of the picture?

You can override the "Page Content" column as the source of the text displayed by the web part by appending:


You can for example rather use the "Byline" column by entering:


Regarding the "read more" button:
please enter the below into the web part's "Detail Link Text" setting:
<button type="button">read more..</button>

To place the button in the bottom left corner o fthe post, please enter:
<button type="button" style="position:absolute;bottom:5px;left:0px">read more..</button>

I REALLY like this web part. I just have a couple of questions. I'm using it to display Blog posts, but my posts don't seem to display with any recognizable order. For example, I've limited the number of items to display to 4. I have 5 items in my Posts list. The web part is displaying the items in the following order (numbers represent the order in which they were published): 5, 1, 2, 3. So the 2nd most recently created item is not displaying. And they're not displaying in descending Published order.

I'd also like to know how you got the number of views, like you're displaying in the image at the top of this page.

I'm using version 1.0.1 of the web part in SP 2013. Thank you!
8/28/2019 18:29 
the blog posts were indeed sorted descending by the „Modified“ column as opposed to the “Published” column.
This has now been fixed.

Please re-download the web part, unzip the WSP file from the downloaded Zip file and then update the web part solution.
8/28/2019 18:36 
Thank you for the very prompt response! I'll get the updated web part and deploy it.

Can you please tell me how to get the number of views for each blog post - the number next to the eye symbol in your image above?
8/28/2019 18:40 
please first add a new list column named say “Clicks” of type “Number” to each list being rolled up by the web part and then add the below to the web part’s “Options” setting:


Please note that this option was only recently added with version 1.0.5
8/28/2019 19:10 
Thanks, Juerg. Since I have to go through quite a process to get approval to deploy to our production farm, there's one more thing I want to check before I download the current version. I'm using the Immerse look in my SharePoint site, so it's a lot of dark colors with light colored text. If I specify that the link should open in a popup window, the popup window isn't inheriting the color scheme for the font. The background for the popup window seems to be using the darkest of the colors from the selected look and the text is black rather than white. It's impossible to read.

Does it still work this way in the most current version of the web part, or has that been fixed? Thank you!
8/29/2019 15:41 
we have now added the new „DarkNews“ detail view template to the web part solution to render the text in a light color.

Please re-download the web part, unzip the WSP file from the downloaded Zip file and then update the web part solution.

To enable the “DarkNews” template, please then add the below to the web part’s “Options” setting:

8/29/2019 19:17 
Thanks so much for working on getting lighter text for dark sites. I've deployed the updated web part (v 1.0.6) in my dev environment and I'm getting the following error when I click on a post:

Template File not found: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\16\template\Features\AENewsTilesWebpart\NewsPopup.txt
8/29/2019 19:34 
please make sure to update the web part as follows:

Extract the AENewsTilesWebpart.wsp file.
Update the web part via the following Sharepoint PowerShell command:

Update-SPSolution –Identity AENewsTilesWebpart.wsp –LiteralPath c:\AENewsTilesWebpart.wsp –GACDeployment

(assuming you placed the WSP file into the c:\root on your Sharepoint web front end server).
Also, PowerShell needs to be “run as administrator”.

Hi Juerg,
After the last update to the web part, everything is working great. Thank you so much for your extremely quick responses and willingness to implement changes. I am always very impressed with your company and your web parts.
