How to create an option to hide publish date in blog post.

resolver

My customer is wanting the option to choose whether a blog post would show the publish date to the user.

I figure I could do this with Javascript but was hoping to avoid content manipulation post load.

One idea was to create a module for blog post settings but I don't know if I can access those variables outside of the module without Javascripting something.

Another option is to have something in the text of the post content that I can look for, say, at the end.  Then I can parse that in Hubl and do my magic from there, but that sounds pretty hacky. 😀

Any ideas?

How to create an option to hide publish date in blog post.

resolver

Hi @JBrower, I would add a boolean field to your blog template, which will show up in a blog post's editor, and then hide/display based on that:

 

<!--
   templateType: blog
   isAvailableForNewContent: true
   -->
{% boolean "hide_date" label='Hide the publish date?', value=False, export_to_template_context=True %}

{# rest of your blog template #}

 

 

Then wherever you're displaying your publish date do:

 

{% if widget_data.hide_date.value == false %}
    {{ content.publish_date|datetimeformat('%e %B %Y')}}
{% endif %}

 

 

This will work if you have your publish date in a blog post hero module that is imported into your blog template or used directly in the blog template.

Wow, I did not know about the "export_to_template_context" attribute.  Thank you!
