CHRONOSLY FEATURED EVENTS

By default, if you have not changed the display options, find Options in the right sidebar of items with this configuration: events, categories, organizers and places.

Chronosly order and featured event options

 

There are two main options you'll find in Chronosly:

 

1. FEATURED EVENTS

Featured events give more prominence to a specific element e.g. Categories, Places, Organizers, Tickets. Featuring an element means making look different from normal ones. Featured elements are more likely to Attract the attention of visitor.

In this example you can see diferences between Featured and Normal events. You can visit our Live Demo for more real examples (Featured vs Normal style) clicking on each tab, Events, Organizers, Places and Categories.

To set featured  Events, also for Organizers, Places and Categories, you can find the option on the metaboxes on sidebar side (by default).

- Select featured in Options box to set Featured style (Check first if template applied has included a featured design).

- If you want a Featured image as example add an image in "featured image" metabox in sidebar side. (Check first if template applied has included this featured image design).

Here is an example, where to find featured option and how to set Featured image in Chronosly back end.

FEATURED IMAGE SIZE AND ASPECT RATIO

Chronosly automatically scales and center images to fit to Featured image.

Best images high/width ratio are 0,7, so we always recommend images in portrait than landscape.

This is an example how a 800x430px is cropped and center when is added as a Featured image into a Chronosly event.

However, if images are 16:9 or over (landscape) they can make some blank spaces as image below.

DISABLE FEATURED ON TOP

Disable "Featured on top" option to sort your Featured events by same criteria you choose in General settings.

2. ORDER

By default, Chronosly all items are ordered by date. This option is useful for customizing the order of any of the elements to give greater visibility and importance over the rest.If you want to change the default Order by another criterion you can go to Settings Chronosly> Settings> General> General Settings> Event sort order.

TIP for ORDER option: if you start using Order in some events, and you leave order in blank on others Chronosly will understand blank ones like "0".  So, all those events with blank order will be placed in first positions.
