Implemented Article Page - Set Cover Image


Staff member
With XF 2.2 taking longer than expected, I am going to move some of the features I've implemented for AMS 2.2 into AMS 2.1.x (starting with AMS 2.1.13).

As per title, you can now set one of the image attachments that have been uploaded to an Article Page as a Cover Image for an Article Page.

The Article Page Cover Image is used mainly for Sharing Services (like Twitter, Facebook, etc). It will also be used for the thumbnail icon for things like Search results, Page Embeds etc. Its DESIGN is 99.9% for Social Sharing so that when you share a article page to twitter, it will use the PAGE Cover Image (if there is one) instead of the Article Cover Image. Fall back uses the Article Cover Image or in the case of no Article Cover Image, it will use a Category Image if one is available.

Some misc screenshots... .

The first one shows you that there will be a "Set cover image" link when there are any image attachments uploaded to a page and the viewing user has permission to set cover image (which is piggybacked off of the canEdit() permission check).


Setting a page cover image is the same as setting an article cover image. It will display any image attachments that have been uploaded to the Page.


When a page has a cover image, it will use that to display on various pages that display "page" content (like search results).

Here are 3 search results. The first 2 results are article pages and they are displaying a page cover image. The 3rd result is the actual article, so you can see that the page cover images are different than the article's cover image (and are different from each other).


Here I am setting a different cover image for the page in the 1st result...


And if I do the search again, its now using the new cover image upload_2020-6-4_8-47-46.gif
