Hi, I would discuss this feature inspired by "Featured Images & Post Thumbnails" from wordpress.
This plugin allow a theme designer to make a nicer home page and/or blog page.

For exemple you can make a home page like this: Image

and your blog entry can look like this:

Image

You can use the cover like a background, or like a big header, or like a small thumbnail, and so on...

Could be done with a dedicated Front Page plugin - please see the topic [feature request] frontpage enhancement.

Not exactly... it can be alive without the front page, the main goal of this plugin is provide a tool (flatpress api or so on) to customize a blogpost

The second example can be done with this code:

Code: Select all

{if ($cover)} <div style=background-image:"{$cover}" ><h2>{$subject|tag:the_title}</h2></div>{/if}
...
{$content|tag:the_content}
...
