Associate an image to a news or a page to display in list

Hello folks!

In Zenpage extension, I wish to associate one single image (thumbnail of existing album or photo) to one news or page in order to display in a list as card style (like here https://getbootstrap.com/docs/4.0/components/card/). I think about publishing the image in extra content field and using printNewsExtraContent(), it works but it is not very clean about cache and format control... Is there a smarter way (extending zenpage with an simple extension, configuration...)?

It seems that in the past there was a combinews feature (still documented in printNewsContent()) but now stopped. Would had it been helpful?

Thanks for any thought about it!

    The combinews feature was something different. It was meant to mix images and/or albums within news articles wihtin the next_news loop. Due to the difference of the separate item types it was a nightmare to maintain.

    What you are looking for is this:

    And while it is already older and "archived" it should work as always. If there is indeed anything wrong let me know.

  • It works perfecly, ajax back end image list window is a bit slow to select the feature image but in front end, it is fast and awesome.

    I would assume you just encountered the usuage delay until the images are cached.
