    I fixed this issue, but you use the wrong urls.

    Your post url is: "/blog/post/:slug"
    The post url of the components are: "/blog/:slug"

    Copy the html code of component into your page and change the url.

    Thank you for convenient and inexpensive plugin. Do you plan to add the ability to attach multiple files/images instead of one at a time?

  • author

    Replied on 13 Aug, 2018

    Thank you for great idea! Unfortunately the October doesn't support the multiple file attach from Media, so I use the simple file uploader.

    I fixed the sort_order column issue and I added a new feature. Please update the plugin!

  • Found the plugin useful on 7 Nov, 2017

    After the latest update 1.3.6 you get an error if the sort_order field is empty (reproducible on your demo site). You get the error message posted below. This is not convenient because the client does not know the order the posts. And the big SQL message makes it messy.

    "SQLSTATE[23000]: Integrity constraint violation: 1048 Column 'sort_order' cannot be null (SQL: insert into indikator_content_portfolio (title, slug, client, webpage, summary, content, meta_title, meta_keywords, meta_desc, image, published_at, sort_order, status, featured, images, files, related_blog, related_news, related_portfolio, updated_at, created_at) values (test, testsdsfdgsfg, dadsfdfas, , , , , , , , , , 1, 2, [], [], [], [], [], 2017-11-08 07:24:40, 2017-11-08 07:24:40))" on line 666 of /var/www/tttweb/data/www/demo.indikator.hu/vendor/laravel/framework/src/Illuminate/Database/Connection.php

    Thank you for reporting this issue! I fixed it and I added a new feature. Please update the plugin!

    The documentation lacks heavily - the demo doesn't integrate the components in the frontend for you to view. The slideshow is just a component giving you theoretically the ability to create one. There's not even demo code inside the component to actually have it sliding.

    Overall it's a nice component, however you really need tons of hours to dig through the code yourself to find what should be inside the documentation.
