Partials, Embeds, Variables

In this video, we will explore partials, embeds, variables, and implement each of them into our site.

What We Do

Code Snippets

Create a Variable

If your variable is called facebook, create facebook.html in your templates/default_site/_variables folder with your Facebook link. To call a variable, simply place it between curly brackets like {facebook}

Create a Partial

Follow the instructions above, but create it in the _partials folder isntead.

Embedded Blog Card

<div class="flex flex-col rounded-lg shadow-lg overflow-hidden">
   <div class="flex-shrink-0">
      <img class="h-48 w-full object-cover" src="{embed:featured_image}" />
   <div class="flex-1 bg-white p-6 flex flex-col justify-between">
      <div class="flex-1">
         {!-- Categories --}
         <p class="text-sm leading-5 font-medium text-indigo-600">
         {!-- End categories --}
         <a class="block" href="/blog/entry/{url_title}">
            <h3 class="mt-2 text-xl leading-7 font-semibold text-gray-900">
            <p class="mt-3 text-base leading-6 text-gray-500">{embed:blog_content}</p>
      <div class="mt-6 flex items-center">
         <div class="flex-shrink-0">
            <a href="#"><img class="h-10 w-10 rounded-full" src=";ixid=eyJhcHBfaWQiOjEyMDd9&amp;auto=format&amp;fit=facearea&amp;facepad=2&amp;w=256&amp;h=256&amp;q=80" alt=""></a></div>
         <div class="ml-3">
            <p class="text-sm leading-5 font-medium text-gray-900"><a class="hover:underline" href="#">{embed:author}</a></p>
            <div class="flex text-sm leading-5 text-gray-500">
               <time datetime="{embed:time_date}">{embed:pretty_date}</time>
               <span class="mx-1">&middot;</span>
               <span>6 min read</span>

To call a card in a loop:

{exp:channel:entries channel="blog" limit="3" dynamic="no"}
      categories='{if has_categories}{categories backspace="2"}<a class="hover:underline" href="/blog/entry/{url_title}">{category_name}</a>, {/categories}{/if}'
      blog_content='{blog_content:attr_safe limit="150"}'
      time_date="{entry_date format='%Y-%m-%d'}"
      pretty_date='{entry_date format="%M %d, %Y"}'
