Custom Blog Listing Design Issue

New Member

I've done quite a bit of customization on the blog on our client's site (blog.thebristal.com). But I am having issues getting it to look correct on the Topic (tag) pages. I have read through all the documentation and still can't figure out what I am doing wrong.

 

What I've done is set up a 'featured' tag that is meant to show up only on the main blog listing page (blog.thebristal.com), with a stream of the 6 most recent blogs under it. However, what I want is for both the Author views and the tag views to only show a standard stream of the most recent blogs along the left-hand side (like the default HubSpot blog template). I was able to successfully achieve this with the Author view (https://blog.thebristal.com/author/armonk). But I am unable to figure out how to customize the Tag view so that it simply streams the most recent few blogs along the left-hand side.

 

I attached screenshots to help explain this.

 

Here is the code currently used on the top section of the page:

<div class="blog-section">
<div class="blog-listing-wrapper cell-wrapper">
      
                                 
  <br>
  {% if blog_author %}
                        <div class="hs-author-profile"> 
                            <h2 class="hs-author-name">Community Blog: {{ blog_author.display_name }}</h2>
                          <p><a href="{{ blog_author.website }}">View Community Page</a></p>
                        </div>
    <br>

                
                <div class="post-listing{% if simple_list_page %}-simple{% endif %}">
                  
                  
                  
                  
                    {% for content in contents %}


                  
                  <div class="post-item">
                            {% if not simple_list_page %}
                            {% if content.post_list_summary_featured_image %}
                                        <div class="hs-featured-image-wrapper">
                                            <a href="{{content.absolute_url}}" title="" class="hs-featured-image-link">
                                                <img src="{{ content.post_list_summary_featured_image }}" class="hs-featured-image" alt="{{ content.featured_image_alt_text | escape }}">

                                        </div>
                                    {% endif %}

Hello Jenna -

 

If I understand correctly, you are trying to mimic the same behavior of the Author page on the Topics page?

 

If you, in the code where it says {% if topic  %}, you should be able to copy and paste your markup from the Authors section and it should do the trick for you. If I am not understanding correctly, please let me know! I'd be glad to help Smiley Happy
